Just joined the club! Got my Alfa GT Blackline on Sat just gone - what a fantastic car! This is my first Alfa and so far I'm really pleased; it looks the buisness and is a beautiful drive.
I do have a few niggles though:
- The Blackline inset in the little crud-trough (I call it this as I'm not sure what other purpose it serves other than to collect crud and be difficult to clean) between the driver and passenger seats was all scratched and bent. The dealer is ordering me a new one.
- One of the rear seat-belts is fitted twisted. I discovered this when trying to fit my son's car seat (I know, I shouldn't be putting children in a car like this, but he wanted to have a go in Daddy's 'cool car'). I'm assuming a dealer will be able to fix this.
- I also got the Blaupunkt bluetooth / usb interface fitted by the dealer. I was sold this as a bluetooth/ipod interface, but the only way I could get my ipod connected was by using the Apple ipod cable with usb connector. Is that normal? I also tried a USB stick (formatted as FAT32 with non-protected MP3 files). Doesn't work. Very disappointing. I'm waiting to hear back from Alfa technical support, but haven't been impressed so far.
The bluetooth works fine, but when it connects to the phone, whilst the radio does cut out, the phone is then at very low (i.e. inaudbile) volume. You have to very quickly crank the vol up before the person you are ringing answers! Does anyone know how to set the default answer/call volume higher?
As the whole kit and caboodle cost £300 for parts and fitting, I'm currently feeling like I got sold a turkey
Car's great though!
Anyway, if anyone can help me with these couple of points, I'd be mighty grateful.
