Just wanted to let everyone know there is a new update for 3rd Gen MY20+ vehicles on the alfaowner site. The newest version is 130.000.002.

It requires a two step process to install the update. You need two usb sticks to complete the update. DO NOT USE BOTH SETS OF FILES ON THE SAME USB DRIVE.

1. First step, if your software version is lower than 127, install L2L3 TRASITION PROD.127.000.004

After you install the first update, you need to unplug the usb stick and insert another one with the second update. The screen will say Transition to L2L3 successful. Ready to Install System Update in green letters. That is when you can replace the first usb stick with the next one.

2. Second step: Remove USB drive after the first update is completed. Install second set of files. GIORGIO L3.21302A.130.000.002

The system will reboot itself and then you can check your version in the software update section.

I was on version 119.001.009 before installing this update. It worked for my vehicle, no issues.

The files were posted by another forum member on this site:

Update at your own risk. This was posted by another forum member, unknown source.

What has changed or what problems is it supposed to fix?
I don't know what has been changed or improved. But I've noticed increased responsiveness after updating. It seems to boot up faster after I start the vehicle.

I just applied the update last night, so its still new to me as well.

There was no service bulletin provided by the source, just the files.

Thanks for the feedback, you’re braver than I!

Mine was just at the dealer last week and they didn’t indicate any update was recommended* and I don’t seem to have any issues with mine, so I think I’ll hold for now.

*They did apply an update to my HVAC though.
Just curious what did they do to update the HVAC? Something in the software?

And I have the same on my 07/21 build.



That's a shame they just don't put in on their website to download. They used for B&M and for UConnect in the USA as well, I think... I own a Peugeot as well and they have a dedicated Windows app to download the updates and prepare the USB.
That being said, I've updated my Giulietta a few times using "unofficial" software and absolutely no issues.


FYI: There is already a service bulletin mentioning version 132.
Thanks for letting us know. I'm sure someone will eventually leak the file to the public. I don't understand why Alfa doesn't do this either. Do they not think their customers are smart enough to install? If you can afford a 40K+ car, then you should be intelligent enough to follow the directions. Most people probably wont even do it, but its a nice option to have.

I think we didn’t get this OTA because that update is for EMEA (according to the release notes). I don’t think we need to install it on a NA spec car… 🤔
I'm not sure I understand your reasoning. The NA spec car infotainment is the same as the EU ones, other than the map/navigation files. Sure you don't need to install it, but there will be general improvements if you do. If you read other peoples posts you would see they are having quicker loading and response on the touch screen. I'm not going to make a list of changes but it seems to be working much smoother than before.

I'm not aware of OTA updates, maybe you can do some research and get back to us on that.
