nice car! i wish we had an onboard computer... they seem really nice. what is a reverse alarm?

cassettes are still sold here like crazy. one day i think they'll be like 8 track tapes.... the one thing i don't like about cassettes is that once you've used them for a while, their sound quality is terrible and they usually wind up getting stuck in the player.

Sounds like the complete package - apart from the casette player!
They don't mention an emergency petrol tap, do they? I seem to remember one model of Fiat where the tap was under the passenger's seat, and when the passenger shot his chair back, it turned off the tap and the engine stopped shortly afterwards!

Thanx tooners,the onboard computer can be a pain in the ass,if a bulb goes,it lets you know ...like every 5 mins,the reverse alarm lets you know if their's something behind you when your reversing,it beeps then goes quicker the nearer you get to it,cassettes arent sold here anymore,cd is the only format you can buy,and cassettes were a bad format,got worn easy then got chewed up!

byronb,it does say that in the event of a collision fuel will be cut off,doesent say how bad the collision has to be?but i'm getting used to it,i know what all the buttons are for now lol.

aaaahhh, we have a reverse alarm in our nissan and i didn't even know it. it's a great thing to have, but you know, it still doesn't help me back up. but, this is a big truck and i have a terrible time driving it. i guess i get nervous when the beeping gets really fast and tend to panic. that's a woman for ya! ;) since the hubby has no prob whatsoever.

congrats mate, lovely family car ! :)

Thanx Munther,its not as if you can slot it out and put a cd player in,its built into the dash,so you have to ask Fiat for one at the cost of 500 quid,it's all about ripping you off?
