Wave Just got my first Alfa!

Hi all!

Have just bought my first ever Alfa Romeo, a 135bhp Veloce Multiair in Alfa Red!
I have a few questions about functions of the car and parts I haven't explored properly!

Does anyone know what the plastic bump on the very front middle of the dashboard, just where the dash meets the window is? I've noticed it is removable and seems to have a ethernet port on the other side? Any idea what this is??

I'm also trying to get my iPhone to play over Blue and Me, it works fine as a phone but media does not work at all. I am to understand I need to buy an adapter to make this work for 60? I have tried playing tracks from a USB which works occasionally, but on most occasions it will just say "No media found". So I've had to make some CDs from iTunes in the mean time!

My final question is in regards to the start stop tech my car has! :P
I have a manual Mito with start stop, it's fab. I've noticed however, on some occasions the car will say "Start stop not available", why is this? I have kind of guessed it might be because I'm on a hill but I'm really not sure!

Thanks for any help

Welcome to AO & to Alfa ownership, congrats on your Mito

Check out the Tech Lounge Alfa MiTo - Alfa Romeo Forum for answers to your questions. BTW there's a list of conditions in your Owner Manual of why & when Start/Stop isn't available.
