  1. Rear View Camera Connection To Pioneer AVIC-F930BT Nav System

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi Guys, I have an Alfa MiTo 2011, fitted with Pioneer AVIC-F930BT. I'm considering installing a "rear view camera" mounted on number plate light. There are many such cameras with housing suitable for Alfa Romeo rear number plate light from eBay. Anyone out there who has successfully done this...
  2. Is your car on Street View?

    General Motoring Discussion
    Now, I appreciate that many on AO live in gated communities, or whose regal homes are only accessible via a rigorous security check and long gravel drives :) but for the 2% on here who, like me, have to slum it with the riff-raff, I wondered whether your cars (Alfa or otherwise) are on Street...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've bought an auto dim rear view mirror but I need to move the mounting point on the windscreen,anyone done this? What glue did you use? I've bought loctite glue kit but I'm a bit sceptical about it as it has some bad reviews. Thanks
  6. My rear view mirror fell off.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm guessing it didn't like the sub-zero temps of late. I'm cleaning off the excess glue with nail varnish remover and a Stanley knife, any recommendations for re-attachment?
  7. 156 GTA Camera Behind Rear View Mirror - Is that a built-in dashcam?

    Alfa GTA
    I noticed in my second-hand 156 GTA that there is a camera built in behind the rear-view mirror on the windshield. At first I thought it was a dash-cam left behind from the previous owner, however I later realized that all 156 GTA's have this camera, meaning that it is an original built-in...
  8. Media player - 1: view track list 2:Spotify

    Alfa Giulia
    This is a little niggle which is bugging me and I just can't seem to work out. I am a USB thumb drive loaded with music files all correctly tagged and sorted by folder which plays just fine as both FLAC and MP3. The thing bugging me though is that when an album is playing I can't seem to find a...

    Well, I've had my Giulia for just over a week and done 550 miles. I thought I'd give my personal opinion on the Giulia v my previous BMW 4 series. Hope this is useful. Spec. Both are 2.0l turbo petrol. The 4 series was a Gran Coupe luxury which had the standard spec plus HK sound upgrade and...
  10. 159 Ti Rear View Mirror size issue

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    G'day, I recently acquired my first Alfa, so this is my first post on the forum. I have noticed a visibility issue, as the rear view mirror is so intrusive to the overall field of view out the front. I found this thread, but it never had any conclusions. Is there any know fix or bracket or...
  11. I love the way car mags view VW products v Alfa's

    General Alfa Discussion
    I love the bias that motoring journo's give VW products v Alfa products In this months CAR, the writer says of the new Golf gti "Over driving the Golf gti upsets the handling balance by inducing excess understeer and destructive ASR/ESP interference. Its much better to keep this car on a long...
  12. The New Giulia... PP's view.

    Alfa Giulia
    Seen the pictures on Youface of the new Alfa Giulia, and have to be honest it didn't make my bits go all fuzzy. To me it looked too much like a BMW from the rear. Nothing wrong with that, but Alfa have always had a distinctive look. So last Sunday nipped down to Guildford to view one in the...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My rear view mirror is the auto dim one, the green LED is on but I cannot see any difference when a car comes up behind me, doesn't appear to dim at all. Have also tried putting my finger over the sensor but still nothing. Is this a common problem, I realise that if the green LED wasn't on then...

  16. What's the general view of the 1750tbi engine?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Father is looking at a 159 1750tbi to replace his 156v6 ti Sportwagon. My Mother has a 06 Brera 2.2SV which she's owned since new and whilst she seems to like it, both myself and my Dad find the engine to be, well, crap. With respect to the 1750, are there any known issues with them? Are...
