Hi

My alfa romeo has a radio tape fitted - why they did that I do not know!!!

I've seen that some alfa's come fitted with a cd player standard. Does anyone know whether I could replace my r/t with a cd player if I can get my hands on one?

You can buy a surround to fit any cd/mp3 player unit into the dash for a bit over £10. The connector is standard enough and you can buy adapters for most units also.

I considered fitting a CD changer in the boot and connecting it up to the original headunit, then I found a new sony headunit and 10 disc changer for £40.

When I did take out the old unit I couldn't work out how I would have connected the changer to the original headunit anyway.

You can often get the OEM one's on Ebay for that original look.

The Turismo had a casette player - the Lusso a CD.

Why not. The in-dash CD headunit should work fine. It then gives you an option of linking to a CD Changer or MP3/iPod if you want to via the connections on the back.

If you don't want to use an Alfa OEM headunit, as suggested before, buy a DIN surround and just use another headunit. I'd stick with an Alfa unit though.


(Woohoo, 1500th post! :))

To connect a CD changer to the original headunit you
just need this lead:

IDC cable

I used the Blaupunkt IDC A09 dash changer
mounted in the boot of my 147. ;)
