  1. Wireless reversing

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Fed up now of the stop start attitude of my reversing sensors :disappointed:. When I have some spare cash I'll fit a tidy set up that will give me quality reversing plus sat nav etc. For now (X-Mas is coming:party:) I was thinking about a cheap(ish) wireless reversing set up. Has anybody tried...

  3. Reversing lights on S4 Spider.

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    These are not working on mine. With the ignition on and the car in reverse there is either no lights or a faint flicker of both lights. Given that there is a flicker I am guessing that it is not the switch. Any thoughts on what to do next.

  9. Has someone installed an aftermarket reversing sensor system?

    Alfa Giulietta
    I'm finding it tricky to gauge the position of a wall / car when reversing using rear view mirrors etc. Maybe it's an age thing or I'm just getting lazy. Just wondering if anyone has installed an aftermarket system that fits in well and without much hassle. Even one of the basic beeping types...

  20. Reversing lights fuse blowing

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I have a facelift 156 and the fuse for the reversing lights and radio(on/off with ignition) keeps blowing. I replaced the fuse and with the radio off, put the car in reverse. As soon as the gear lever hit the reverse position I watched the 10amp fuse blow. Any idea what might be causing this?
