Hi guys, some of you may know me from the 145, 146, 155 & 164 model lounge but I'm new here. I've just bought a 2001 X 147 2.0TS Selespeed in Nero Fuoco Metallic with Black Leather interior. I'm extremely happy with it!
You can see some pictures here
. Car's got a full Alfa history and it's booked in for a cambelt service next week. 69,000 miles on the clock. I picked it up for £6400 which I reckon was a fairly good price!
I've a few questions that some more experienced owners may be able to help me with:
- When I lock and unlock the car I get a mechanical sound from under the bonnet. I can only assume this is the Selespeed initialising as I've not had it on any other car. Am I right or is it something else?
- When I turn the ignition off the car buzzes at me twice every time, I can't think what it is trying to warn me of. Can anybody enlighten me?
- I've got no owners' manual for the car so I'm a bit baffled by the air con console and radio. Can anyone sell me a manual? I asked my dealer in Cambridge but Priory were being typically rubbish.
- Unfortunately no CD changer in the car. What sort could I fit (the standard radio/CD has a changer control)? Where does the standard one live? Are cables already installed (power and ISO) so I can just plug one in?
Well I guess I'll be hanging round here from now on so you'd better get used to me
Thanks for your help.
