Help 159 SW - few questions (railings, parktoronic, mirrors etc.)

Hi again,

and here is the second part of questions:
1. Is it possible to add railings if I haven't got it right now?
2. Is it possible or maybe what needs to be done to put in the original factory reverse sensors?
3. I know that in 2008 Alfa added to the 159 a possibility to open trunk with a button in logo. Have you ever thought about mounting it in older models (mine is 2006)?
5. Is it possible to configure the mirrors to close automatically after pull of the key, or maybe after close a car with a remote?

Thank you in advance for any information about above questions.

Best regards

I was told by my dealer you can add roof bars afterwards, as for the factory sensors these can be retro fitted but there are cheaper models that are every bit as good. I don't think you can add the badge boot button and I have no idea on the mirrors as I don't have auto closing on mine.

I was told by several dealers and in the config options on the new car section of the ARUK website that the roof rails are a factory fit option only..... i wanted these originally on mine (retrofit) but i prefer it without now, much cleaner and less cluttered, got thule roof bars for when im off to Cornwall with the roof box on...

Not sure about the sensors, would think it would be a bit of a job to do although the features required in the plastic should all be moulded in to the bumper to secure the sensors. then you need to find the connector on the loom if its there at all, then there i sthe button on the overhead console which overrides it.

Im sure ive read here about peple retrofitting the badge button release or at least seeing if it is possible....

On mine which is a early 2007 my mirrors dont autofold, im sure i was told this was a brera option only, this may have changed since my car was built....
