Radio transmitters and cellular telephones

Radio transceiver equipment (e.g.: e-tacs mobile phones, HAM radio systems and the like) shall not be used inside the vehicle unless a separate aerial is mounted on the roof.

IMPORTANT The use of similar devices inside the passenger compartment (without separated aerial) produces radio-frequency electromagnetic fields which, amplified by the resonance effects inside the passenger compartment, may cause electrical systems equipping the vehicle to malfunction. This could compromise safety in addition to constituting a potential hazard for the passengers.

In addition, transmission and reception of these devices may be affected by the shielding effect of the vehicle body. As concerns EC-approved mobile phones (GSM, GPRS, UMTS), strictly comply with the instructions for use provided by the mobile phones manufacturer.

WARNING

Take care when fitting additional spoilers, alloy rims and non-standard wheel caps: they might reduce ventilation of the brakes, thus their efficiency, during abrupt and repeated braking, or long downhill slopes. Make sure that nothing (mats, etc.) gets in the way of the pedals when they are pushed down.
