Re: New Alfa Owner - who else here with a Blackline!
Well I have now had my Blackline for 48 hours and I have to say I am SO impressed! Having been a staunch BMW owner for 15 years (1,3,5,and 7) I was just a little apprehensive about joining the ranks of Alfa owners - not knowing anything about them. Also I bought the Blackline from the page. I had not been able to see or testdrive one. (Yes, I do often act on impulse!). I tried Fish Bros but thye had none in stock to show me.
So far I can give the Blackline eight thumbs up (as Homer would say). Now I must fit an ipod kit of sorts to the sound system (which I am also very impressed with); a bluetooth kit so I can talk hands free and a sat nav - one thing though - where would I place the sat nav unit. On my last car (the excellent one series) I had it stuck on a cradle on the windscreen which I grew to hate as although it was practical - it looked so NAF! Any suggestions ? So far as the ipod kit is concerned I am wondering if we can do it so the ipod itself lives in the card carrier thing on the dashboard as I cannot think of another useful use for it.
Thanks for the welcome to such a newbie. Now I am a convert I am sure I will use these forums more often.
