Re: New 147
Went to the dealer Friday evening to see the new 147 in the flesh and must say, the little changes they have made inside, I want them too in my bella.
Starting with the doors:they have changed the Alfa Tex with leather, same as the seats in the distinctive version (top model here with us).
If they are not too pricy I will swap my alfa tex for them.
Dash: Less grooves, no grey rings and other display. Older was more beautifull.
Middle console, more aluminium and other lining arouns ashtray, this looks good. Arrows around the Airco knobs (blue cold / red hot).
Boot panel has an other color.
For the seats, I have leather too and they have changed only the amount off ribbons on the back, now there are 4 ribbons. Feels a little more harder, but it's still new, overall the same as mine.
Headrest in the back have changed too: more or less like BMW or Mercedes, only in the back though.
Outside : we have all seen the photos and some like them others not.
I start liking the backside, still not a fan of the front, lights are too big. and very vornurable or something like that.
She's still standing high on the wheel part, so lowering is a must!!!
Haven't seen the new alloys, but they will come soon according to the dealer.
This covers it I think, most people that were at the dealer where going to the older version first and then to the new version. We will see what the sales will say in a few months.
