Alfa GT Q2


Hello All....just want to introduce myself. A long time Audi driver and maybe about to change to Alfa Romeo! This afternoon I have a test drive in a Q2 GT, having already tried the Audi TT 2.0 FSI. I'll post my thoughts later. However a few words about the TT. I thought it was a great car, the FSI engine has amazing torque for a 2 litre petrol engine, and combined with the cars light weight aluminium construction (1260kg) acceleration is terrific and fuel economy nearly up there with the diesel Q2. I didn't enjoy so much the ease with which it's possible to promote wheel spin and the evident torque steer which was very unnerving when making a rapid overtaking maneouvre! Hence, my interest in the Q2. I'm also looking for something more distinctive and more rare on the roads.

Just one question. Has anyone experience of fitting a Pioneer double DIN navigation/multimedia system to the GT. I'd prefer a more modern system to the Connect + offered by Alfa which looks dated and probably uses dated technology...viz no blue tooth etc. If I fit a more modern system what about the Bose audio that comes as standard with the Q2 and the steering wheel controls.

Many thanks.

Re: Hello

Welcome aboard mate and enjoy your stay!

Get the TT and do as Nomad said!
I'm pretty sure it can be done even with the steering wheel controls - those have been discussed at length. Search and ye shall find.
