159 Owner's Service Folder & Handbooks
« on: May 10, 2020, 02:57:23 PM »
My Alfa came with some receipts etc but never the original service folder and handbooks.

Can anyone tell me which books originally came with the Alfa 159 2.2JTS sedan? I'm guessing owner's manual, audio system, service manual and a bluetooth manual of sorts = 4 books plus folder?

And perhaps where I can find them? I'd like to get some for my car.

I do remember seeing a set being sold on one of those online Alfa stores, but cannot remember which one. Possibly UK based. God knows how long postage will be these days, however.
The only problem with the GTV6? They forgot to install the flux capacitor...

Good point. I messaged a few wreckers on Gumtree. I wonder though where the Italian motor wreckers are in Melbourne. Will do a search, unless folks have recommendations...

Try MONZA Motors/Alpha Repairs in Bayswater or The Italian Job in Oakleigh or Milano or Milano Spares in Thomastown

Owner manual, service book, audio manual (with some errors in it), Blue&Me booklet and the code card for the audio.  Not that anyone would ever steal the very ordinary Blaupunkt unit.  Should be in a black vinyl case strapped into its own special bracket in the boot.

Neither of my 159s came with any Australian market supplement; doubt there is one.  They did come with Alfacare card.

What it should have is a bottle of Selenia in the boot.

I gather if mine didn't come with books, then re-setting the audio code would be a dealer job? Haven't had to do it yet, though, even with the battery in and out at first.

What it should have is a bottle of Selenia in the boot.

Never mind vinyl, it should've come in goat leather!

What's this Selenia you speak of the Italian motor oil that's available on the Alfisti shop online?

Is it better than standard here in Oz, or simply logo+brand+quality = premium price?

Would hesitate to actually use the Selenia carried around in my boot, but let's not start THAT debate again...

I routinely disconnect my battery for weeks at a time.  The radio has never needed the code re-inputted.  Maybe you'd have to remove it to need the code?
