Got my 166 on Friday and have been enjoying it over the weekend and getting to know all the bits. Thing is, I didnt get an owners manual with it, so there are a couple of things I am not sure about
The red key when pressed, locks the car and sets the alarm and when pressed again, it unlocks the car/alarm. However, if I hold it down for a few seconds, it seems to lock but with a different "beep" sequence? I assume this is maybe a setting for door alarms but disabling the interior volumetric sensors?? Also, are there any other sequences etc I should know about? Is there a panic alarm feature on the key?
My other question is regarding the boot. I see there is a button in the glovebox, or you can use the key under the badge, but is there no other way to open it, such as by key etc?
I have had 2 156's and a 147 previously and went to BMW for a while and now I am back, so just trying to refresh stuff from before.
Oh! That reminds me. I seem to remember that some of the previous Alfas had a "follow me home" lights feature when you parked up for the night?? I think again it was done by the key and when you locked the car, the headlights remained on for maybe 30 or 40 seconds, enough to let you get your key in the house door, before switching of?? Or maybe I am dreaming??
Look forward to any help thanks
