    nice work!!

    i really don't remember ever seeing a alfa 147 before, and am really torn on that front end. in one way, it looks really cool, and mean, but in another, just a little weird, and a little out of proportion-- the grille is too small for the front end..

    do you really have a no. 7 plate, or was that photoshopped?

    I've always found the alfa front ends to be one of those "love or hate" designs, but Morfeus, throw up a picture of the back end of the Alfa....they ALWAYS look hot as

    Nice work on the install mate, I especially like the power and status setup in the ashtray! And the amp install on the back of the rear seats looks really neat and tidy.

    I wonder where in CA I can find an Alfa on ebay (other than a 70's Spider, this one is easy)...

    Very cool ride, and very nice install, congrats!

    found one:

    it kind of reminds me of a alienware laptop or it looks similar to some audi's.

    I remember the 147 I had in '99. Drove it all over Italy, France, and Sicily. Really fun to drive with decent power to weigh and well balanced suspension. Just the perfect sized car for an American navigating the tiny streets of small towns in Europe.

    Sweet install, never liked the factory Nav either.

    hello guys,

    thank you all for the compliments !

    @soundman98: you mean the grille of the Alfa or CF front end? however, my 7 is photoshopped
    anyway thanks for the comment!

    @Chester: thanks Chester! I feel the same way on the design of the Alfa, the perfect balance of sportiness and elegance, pure Italian style

    @RipplingHurst: thank you !!

    @GizmoQ: Yes, also I do not like too the nav.. I've installed Sygic

    I would like a skin for CF 3.1 of Alfa, but I have not found .. you know where I can try?

    Greetings to all and sorry if my English is not good, but I'm not native speaker

    Very nice installation, it looks pretty impressive. I have recently got an Alfa 147(great car) and I plan to build my own carputer soon with similar installation(double din like you, after removing the cd radio and the drawer/cup holder), so I wanna ask a few questions.

    1) Your monitor is similar to the VM70 sold by short-circuit, right? I saw one in german ebay and seems similar, but with better specs(brightness and contrast wise). Can you tell me how it performs at your car, especially during the day with daylight? Is it easily readable? Because I'll be on a tight budget and that monitor is rather cheap(plus I won't risk paying any customs from Germany here in Greece and I have low postage cost).

    2) The facia is custom, right? Built from nothing? Or did you buy a double din facia for 147/156/GT(found some in italian ebay for example) and then built on it?

    3) Did you dismantle the monitor or did you put it there in a custom double din cage, and then put the (custom?) facia on? If it can fit as is, it will save me a lot of trouble.

    Hi BrocasHelm,

    thanks for the compliments ! Then..

    1) Yes my monitor is very similar to VM70, precisely this http://cgi.ebay.com/Touchscreen-7-LC...item35afa6f09c
    the touch is very precise and looks very good, even during the day the visibility is good

    2 & 3) Yes, the facia is custom, I have bought a double DIN interface for 147, this http://cgi.ebay.it/MASCHERINA-AUTORA...item2560f65560 and I have modify it whit Fiberglass to adapt for monitor frame and make a unique piece.

    I hope I explained myself well, I'm sorry but I do not know perfect English!
