Going through the threads we noticed that we did not have a dedicated thread for our own Giulia!

With that being said, the purpose of this post is to update everyone on the progress we are making on our build!

We decided to start off with a base Giulia since we were going to upgrade just about everything. It made sense to use the base vehicle for this purpose.




Let the mods begin!

The first thing we decided to do is install our MADNESS GOPedal.

While it does not add HP to the vehicle it certainly makes the car a lot more responsive and really does a great job with getting rid of the lag that you feel upon acceleration.

We have installed a number of them in local Giulia cars and have received great feedback. So, we decided to also install it in our own car so we can easily let local owners hop in our test car and try it out for themselves.






MADNESS GOPedal - check!

This mod is not for everyone and at times we get some people on forums debate on how it works and whether it works or not. Rather than get in to debates we simply offer the unit with a 30 day money back guarantee. This allows you, the owner to try it (install is easy) and form your own opinion.

We then installed a number of carbon fiber trim pieces to further set the car apart from the rest. Here are some pics of the CF Trim.

We first installed the CF Front V Shield Emblem and Grill Frame on our car. The fit and finish was perfect and it really set the front end apart from the stock vehicles.

Here are some pics along with the direct product link:

The stock plastic AC Vents could surely use an upgrade and those were on the list next.

We installed a set of 4 CF Vent Trim Pieces over the stock plastic parts. The install was once again relatively simple (dab of epoxy) and the finished look did a lot to upgrade the interior. Here are some pics:

Here's my first MADNESS purchase. I know, nothing to special, but the way this windshield sunscreen is made to perfectly fit a Giulia is fantastic. I have a black interior and sunroof, so this was definitely needed to help keep out some of the sun.

Glad you like. This was one of the first things we asked for from our partner that makes these once we got our Giulia. It has been over 100 here in TX and this certainly helps (as you know).

What type/brand epoxy do you recommend? And are these parts removable with that epoxy (ie, lease return?)
Thanks for all of the photos.

Carpet bombing a forum with multiple ads is not cool.
Sir,

We are not carpet bombing the forum with multiple ads. If you feel that way we apologize.

We are simply answering some questions from members on different threads and also addressing some comments now that the weekend is over and we are back to work.

This thread is dedicated to our own Giulia and what we are doing with it. We have been asked multiple times by people to show what we are doing with our car, we have also been asked to show better detailed pictures of the products installed on a car and that is exactly what we are doing.

Sorry you feel like you are being "carpet bombed", but we are simply sharing information and talking about our own vehicle and what we are doing to it as well. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

You are most welcome! We had requests so we thought we would take a little time to share. We have more we will put up as progress continues.

Now to your epoxy question.

We typically recommend Black RTV Silicone to people when they want to buy something locally at a hardware store. It works pretty well and can be sourced pretty easily,

If you are planning to install some items to a car that you would possibly return once the lease is up we would recommend using a clear silicone. It is something you can purchase at a local hardware store as well. The cure time is longer, but it is pretty easy to peel off once you are done. Just take some time and mask the area around so it does not ooze out and get on the nice soft materials all around. We would also recommend getting some Blue Painters Tape and masking the item down for overnight so it can cure. Once done, simply peel off the tape and you should be all good.

At our shop we typically use a two part professional epoxy or Window Weld Silicone if we want it on permanently without a chance of coming off.

Some pieces can also be installed with 3M double side tape.

Hope that helps and as always do not hesitate to reach out.

Madness Autoworks is a paid vendor on this site. This thread is in their forum section that they pay extra to have. They are advertising products that they sell, the work that they do, and, on a Giulia that the company owns.

This is not a carpet bomb, spam, trolling, or in anyway wrong or outside of the forum guidelines.

Jeff, I realize that you've had a terrible, traumatic experience with your new Giulia and that Alfa bought it back as a result. Please don't let your sour experience effect other Giulia owners.

Perhaps you need some time away from the forum while you recover.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with their posts. They are posting about their build and advertising their products, fully installed in the vehicle. I really appreciate the fact that they have done this. It makes the customer make sound decisions when purchasing items. Madness keep up the good work. :smile2:

Thank you, Racer Z. Again, our intentions were not to spam anyone but to bring everyone up to speed!

We want to make sure all of our products fit perfectly and function correctly before we release them into the market! Glad that you are enjoying the progress we are making! We will have more products for y'all in the next coming days!

Ready to upgrade the interior of your Alfa Romeo Giulia with the look of Carbon Fiber?

Check out the new carbon (A/C) dash bezel we just installed on our Giulia!






The install was very simple. We just used a couple of dabs of epoxy and installed the part in place. We used a little bit of Blue Masking Tape (as always) to keep the part in place overnight. This allows the epoxy time to cure and at the same time keep the piece in place so it does not shift while curing .

Like the other parts this part is designed and manufactured in Europe to the highest standards. It is designed to cover the original trim piece and once installed it looks pretty sharp!

For more info on this piece please follow the link below:
