Hello!! New to the forum.

I just bought a 2016 Doblo 1.6 MJET Cargo SX and I'm really loving it! Coming in from a really nice Alfa 156, I had to trade it as my car is mostly used to carry my bikes around.
Now.
I was thinking on some upgrades:
1. a reverse camera, it's really handy to me, and they're so cheap right now. Do you have any suggestions? I've seen some on Amazon, around 60/100 (euro/pound/dolar).
2. Have you upgraded your interior lights? I'm maybe putting some leds on the cargo roof, bought some on Amazon, but I'm yet to know how to install it ;D
3. Shielding in the cargo interior with some fabric or ply, is it feasible on your own, or you better spend the money on a professional job?
4. The tires that came in are really small. 185/65 R15. Maybe change for a bigger one?
5. Have you bought/installed anything to help with the lack of storage for small stuff; mobile, keys, wallet?

All advice are welcome as I feel a little bit lost on all this new stuff!

Thank u!!

Hi, loads of Alpha alloy wheels fit the Doblo, I have 225/45/17 alloys from an Alpha on mine, Alpha leather seats can also be made to fit, although on my 2017 Doblo maxi I have fiat leather seats fitted, you will also get loads of stainless steel trim ad on's from eBay, LED lights, android head units, leather gear gaiters etc.

I have alloys with 235/45/17 tyres on mine. Keep in mind you have to get wheels with an offset of about 25 to ensure a comfortable gap between the inside of the tyres and the rear shock absorbers when you go that wide. Mine are Rial Bavaro in 7.5" x 17" ET27.

I also have wind deflectors on my sidewindows, but I would heavily advise against the Fiat accessory ones: I had to use extra clips that leave scratches on the edge of the glass and glue them to the mirrorbases to keep them in place.
I've seen a Doblo at my dealership that has 'Climair' deflectors that look and fit a lot better than the Fiat ones.

Hey thank you so much for all of your replies! I think the first thing will be upgrading speakers and next will be the wheels.
Not sure how to do it on 263, on my old Alfa speaker replacement was kinda easy, maybe it's the same procedure like the previous Doblo models?
