On the MP3 note I don't think I'm being too specific let me explain, the denison ice-link jobbie that they installed is something that plugs into the base of the ipod, where the computer lead normally goes, and the IPod link provides NO hiss, I'm referring to the mp3 playback of CDs that I've made with MP3s on them through the head unit, that playback method is the one that produces the hiss !!
MPG is horrendous but I can live with that ! :-)
The boot doesn't sit flush one side is 1mm up and one side is 1mm down from the bodywork either side of it and the alfa romeo logo on the front bonnet doesn't line up either, with the V below it, even though the bonnet sits flush on the car - are these normal Alfa Romeo traits on GTs !??
Its on 18" wheels and when I turn sharp right as in full lock I swear I hear noises sometimes from the wheel arches, is that normal(ish) too ?!
There is also some form of squeaking sound coming from somewhere in the rear of the car, it looks like it might be the boot or something, obviously it doesn't do it whilst stationery, so I'm guessing I'll put someone in the back and see if they can track it down whilst I'm driving, unless gpr wants to shed some light on that one for me !
And my final little thing is, the Alarm, it beeps once, then beeps a second time, by reading the owners manual and from what sherrp also says that would indicate there's a fault, somewhere, I've tried shutting all the doors harder than I normally would, and the boot and the bonnet, the doors and bonnet all trigger the alarm when I leave the windows open and open the doors from the inside as does when I flip the bonnet by leaning in the driver side and pulling the latch, I've got no way of testing the boot as the only way I can open that is from the key and I'm guessing that de-activates the boot sensor, has anyone else had any problems like that before and figured out a way of solving it?! I can't really shut anything harder than I'm shutting it now without really feeling a bit queasy about shutting them harder !
It does sound like I'm going through lots of small little niggles but as long as I know most of them are shared problems I can get on with enjoying what a great car the rest of it is !
oh and thanks for all the help already received !!! much appreciated, really is
