  2. Alfa GTA
    People always ask, which is better, a 147 or a 156. Now I have the answer. In top gear this month there is a section listing the top 150 Italian cars of all time. Is the 147 gta in there? No! Is the 156 gta? Yes! That surely settles it, the 156 is clearly better....:cool: Saying that, the...

  8. ICE & Blue&Me
    Hi all, I am having difficulty with the phone function of Blue and Me in my 159 Ti - everything works fine except that when i get a call the system will not let me answer it using the steering wheel control (phone symbol). If I press it for a short while it does literally nothing but hold it...

  10. ICE & Blue&Me
    I was wondering if any one can offer some advise on a problem I'm having with Blue & Me. It seems to work fine making calls but if someone phones me I can't seem to answer the incoming call. Pressing the Menu button (which the manual says to use) doesn't answer the call. If I hold it down though...

    We have a part time receptionist who only works PMs and not at all on Wednesdays. Were; pretty good in our small office, but in other sites I've noticed that people just will not answer the door. Leading to deliveries not being made etc. A neighbour company (a very large US corp) in our...

    Further to earlier threads, I finally got (from ARUK) the definitive answer on servicing requirements for MY08 Spiders (incl. Spider LE). Like a few on here, we'd had calls from dealers telling us the "annual" service was due, and that it would have to be a full service. Given ours had done...
