Help New Alfa driver

I have recently become an Alfa driver for the first time after taking delivery of my 159SW on friday of last week. I can't believe what an awesome car this is albeit not to the spec that was ordered.
I ordered the car with both the normal Sat Nav and Blue & Me as an optional extra. After the car is ordered I went out and bought myself a 40GB MP3 player for those long and winding roads. I am told on delivery that the Sat Nav and Blue & Me are not compatible with each other but instead of telling me, the dearer option is fitted.
The dealer is now looking into retro fitting a bluetooth link for my mobile, and a usb port for my MP3 player.
Has anyone out there had a similar thing happen to them and what was the outcome. Also being a new Alfa driver do I have to keep pestering the dealer or do they come back to you as promised???
This is annoying because of instead of having 40GB's worth of music at my disposal on a very small device, I have a one disc cd player and a car full of cd's.
Well I didn't mean to start on a moaning spree, but any help / views would be appreciated.

Re: New Alfa driver

Same thing happened, but I was told when I ordered my Brera that I couldn't have both. So at least I chose the SatNav.

Anyway, welcome to the party, and congrats on the new car!
