I just bought the best ones available off eBay for 260. All the other ones available were missing a piece of plastic where a screw would be. The ones I bought came off a 2018 Giulia. So I am hoping they work on my 2017 Giulia. We will see. Next I need to buy multiecuscan and a obd Bluetooth reader. Multiecuscan is 50 dollars and the obd reader I think is around 20.

Will you change the steering column shrouds too or will you plan to just modify existing ones?

I planned on just using a dremel, like the Italian guy did. However madness has a nice carbon fiber one for around 300, or contact the dealer. Not to sure how much they would cost though.

Is the C/F unit designed to fit with paddles?

I think I'd modify the original part, just for the project. It's a nice challenge.

Did you install them? I don't know if the cf one is setup for paddles. Never even thought of that. Lol

Yeah dremel can do good things...I am looking forward to see your progress, I just might do the same if you get them to work...,

No, I did not. My Giulia came with paddles and I have the stock cowling. I just like doing these personal mods myself. But, sometimes the part cost is so low that I can't justify my time. In the case of carbon fiber parts, I can't make my own. Depends on quite a few variable actually.

Could you by chance take some pictures of the cowling and where the shifters come out? I kinda want to know if it is the top piece or the bottom piece and have some pictures for reference. Thanks!

Left and right cowling seem to be mirrored. I don't know where the non-paddle shift cowling seam lines are. My best guess is the both halves will need to be altered.

Left side







Right side

Thanks Racer, from what i am seeing both shrouds will have to be replaced...it seems like there is protrusion on the ones with paddles where switching gear goes....non paddle version does not have that protrusion
