Alfa Giulietta 2012 model no usb/aux

Hello everybody!
Recently I bought a used G from Germany and after all of the services(oil, filters, etc.) it works like a charm. My only issue is, as the topic name suggests, that on the place where the usb and aux inputs should have been theres an empty spot and nothing more. I was wondering if I could add something there since driving without songs is boring! :P
Whatever inputs you need regarding the car dont hesitate to ask!
Thank you in advance!

It is not! I have checked a million times. There's an empty slot in the place of the adapter

Yes some early cars don't have a usb/aux depend on Country, Germany was a very cost sensitive market.

My 2011 G did not either, I considered a couple of options but decided a 2016G was cheaper upgrade. (Joke)
1. Buy missing module and cable from wrecker/breaker.
2. Buy new from AR.
3. Buy an after market USB module, eg https://www.car-interface.com/vendit...-xcarlink.html
4. Replace stereo with something a bit more modern, but you'll need a double din fascia as I have not seen a single din fascia.

Could somebody help me solve my issue? It's been two months without any way to listen to music rather than that stupid cd player.

Took a photo of the sound system today so that if anybody knows they could tell me. Is it possible to add anything like an aux adapter or should I give up?

In theory you can connect wires on radio (aux L, aux R and ground) and activate here and it should work.
This is simulation I still havent tried activate on mine until I disassemble radio and connect AUX cable.
Anyone tried?

One question for people with AUX.
When u dont have anything plugged in, can you choose AUX in media selection on radio or not?
I enabled AUX via MES before wireing but nothing to show

@funnycause, I have the exact same problem. Bought my G from Germany, a 2012 Model but no usb/aux ports. Same as yours.
Did you find a way of adding bluetooth ?

A Millennial problem? What happened to your CDs or too young to have bought any? I have the opposite problem. 20 years of buying them and no CD player in the car. Got the aux sockets though... Maybe that’s good enough a reason to keep the 147 a little longer.

I'm having a problem because I do not have anywhere to burn a disc with music

For models without aux/usb /b&m I think this is the best solution (if you have a tablet that you do not need)

I added one of these recently & it's great. Plays any music or streaming direct from my phone and takes a few minutes to install... I also have a Giulietta without Aux.

That's a pretty cool tablet set-up, well done.

Love that look and I have a spare tablet, what software is running on the one in your picture?
