Adding paddle shifters

So I am going to attempt to add paddle shifters to my giulia. I found some for 225 and I contacted the Alfa dealership near me and they told me I needed to contact a Ferrari dealership.

I called them today and they said they cannot do the programming and referred me to a Maserati/Alfa dealer. That dealers Alfa tech is out for a couple days so they said to call back in a couple days.

I will keep everyone posted on here. I wouldn't think it would be that much for program it. BTW I am going off of the write up from the Italian forums.


Note from moderator:
If you're looking for the 'How To' on this, Raw_Alfa has posted that in a newer thread:

Good luck, let us know how it goes!


The perfect car I wanted was on the lot, with the only exception being it lacked paddles. I almost bought it instead, thinking I'd add the paddles later, but opted to go with another one that had more stuff (including paddles).

From multiecuscan it looks like it's an easy change.

Update for everyone. In my quest to find out who can do the programming for me. I went back to the Italian site and the original author said multiecuscan will work.

I spoke with Alfa Romeo USA on Facebook and this was their reply

Hi Justin,

Thank you for your message. Unfortunately, we are not trained technicians here. We rely on our dealerships as a technical resource. Our dealers do have resources that they can work with to help them activate the paddles.

Kaitlin
Alfa Romeo Social Care

So I contacted my dealership who is local to me and they basically don't want to tackle it. They have no clue how to go about doing this and with a labor rate of 130 an hour to install this, I'll pass.

So as soon as a set of paddles pop up on eBay I will be tackling this and using multiecuscan to activate.

So as of now my dealeeship doesn't know **** and I won't be working with them.

Document the process, maybe make a how to after so that others going through it can learn from your experiences. Good luck!

From my understanding, multiecuscan will turn them one once installed. I will keep everyone posted. Going to be doing this before summer, sometime in spring. Next couple of months. I'll do a full right up, since the only one avaible is in Italian.
