Interesting centre console. Is this the limited edition Transformers(TM) model?

One picture show without the sat nav and a standard stereo, then in another picture shows the sat nav system with the same climate control in my GT!

The two dashboard photos don't match, not by a long way!

Re: Spot the deliberate mistake!

Is it the TARDIS? Or is that something to do with dual climate zone A/C? then I could understand the 2 dash thing.

Re: Spot the deliberate mistake!

the center console pic shows the center console of an alfa 147 with connect nav, the interior pic is correct though.

Spotted something else!!

If you look at the info bit he has the registration down as W*** ***

But in his pictures he has not blanked the reg out. Seems a bit odd.

Re: Spot the deliberate mistake!

Why would somebody put different centre consoles on the same advert? Surely people aren't that stupid!

Re: Spot the deliberate mistake!

Some people are very stupid , not long ago someone was selling a 156 on e bay and saying that it was a 2.5v6 and its the only Alfa worth buying and that the 2.0 litre engine was rubbish blah blah blah. When i saw the pic of engine i realised it wasnt a 2.5 v6 but low and behold a 2.0l twinspark . I sarcastically said that i think the 2.5 v6 you have for sale seems to have lost a couple of cylinders .Talk about trying to talk yourself out of a sale or what"!!!!!!

At 10,000 rpm , no one can hear you scream.

Maybe it's just set up for Left Hand Drive in which case it would be right

Re: Spot the deliberate mistake!

Hmmm sterling cars.......

Frugal with description would be the nicest think that could be written about them, they have a number of Ebay accounts that the sell under.

A few weeks ago they had a silver spider with no passenger airbag and a drivers ne that looked like it have been glued back together
