Giulia; The perfect stablemate

I just received my Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio. She is a real beauty! The perfect companion to my 12C. She drives like dream; amazing steering, great suspension and plenty of kick. Build quality and fit/finish are better than I expected. Great daily driver. I haven't been this excited since I got my 12C almost 5 years ago.

Does the front spoiler pop out at certain settings to increase downforce?

Saw one at the LA Auto Show. It was almost as good-looking as the Alfa spokesmodel.

Alfa Giulia QV, what an amazing car, I love it, congratulation!
A perfect match to your beautiful 12C.

Which gearbox has your QV?

Only auto is available in the US. The paddles are very nice and crisp shifts.

Thanks, but I'm not much of a wine guy. More of a "Man cave"...

Alfa romeo is really upping their game with their re entry in the US market. I got their 4C, which also has a carbon fiber tub like our cars. Such a fun car and so far very happy with the build quality, etc. as well.
A friend who also got a Giulia says that it's better than the Ghibli he had before

The Alfa does complement your 12C quite nicely. The Giulia would be near the top of my list if I was in the market for a sedan right now. Awesome garage too. Congrats!

Ah ok, thank you. What I have read about the manual gearbox the auto seems to be the better choice anyway.
