I'm using the paddles more! Love downshifting just to hear the beautiful Centerline exhaust sound. Price of admission was well worth it.Got mine installed today and I LOVE IT!!
Now I just have to find even more random excuses to drive her.
Anyone else finding that they're actually using the paddles more?
I can actually hear what's going on now and it's more enjoyable. Previously I was only using the paddles for spirited runs, but now even in stop and go traffic it's fun.
The 2950 pound number (actually xxx kg) is referenced in a link in one of the forum threads posted several months ago. The forum member wanted to know why everyone was saying that the car weighs 3500 pounds if AR says it weighs a lot less. You gotta admit if the car actually did weigh 3000 pounds while keeping power at the current level, it would be totally crushing the competition.I think his comment was due to your use of the word "excessive" when it came to the purported curb weight increase. How can you summarize the increase in weight as excessive? Are you an automotive structural engineer? Have you designed automobiles that have passed crashed tests? So based on your usage of the word "excessive" you are then certain the Giulia would have passed crash tests with 250 pound increase in re-reinforcements?
I have not fact checked 2015 AR press release to confirm or deny the sub 3000 curb weight for the Giulia but I personally don't see how the car would have ever been below 3,000 pounds, realistically speaking.
The modern sedan is now weighing over 3000 pounds. Performance Trim sedans like the Q, AMG, M, Panamera and S cars are weighing closer to 4000 pounds if not more. ****, even compact sedans like the Corolla are weighing closer to 2900 pounds. The Giulia, with all its different trim configurations comes in at a very comparative curb weight.
We didn't mean to confuse anyone with the product name. It is not in any way related to Corsa exhaust, which is a good company with a good reputation IMHO.Noted on that, but it's not from Corsa the company, correct? I ask because their exhaust has a totally different sound than magnaflow or other companies, based on their muffler design. In my opinion a much better sound than lots of the competition.
Corsa = Loud and Proud. JoeCab - my wife says you're taking me from a 52 year old pretty docile dude to a man who is living his second child hood. But she says if she has to share me with a mistress better to be a car named Giulia with a loud exhaust!Thank for all the good reviews on the system.

The name came about with our 4C exhausts, which are also made for us by Magnaflow. The first product we released was the "Stradale" (Italian for Street Version) which had a resonator in the rear section. However we had a number of customers that wanted a louder exhaust, so we released the "Corsa" - Race - version which didn't have a rear resonator at all.
And thus a naming convention was born:
Stradale = with a rear muffler or resonator
Corsa = without a rear muffler or resonator
I remind my wife of same thing. Cars are much less expensive than mistresses.Corsa = Loud and Proud.

Oh boy is there ever. We have just finalized the design on the Quadrifoglio system. It's been in development for over 9 months!Heard Alfa55's this morning.....SOUNDS GREAT !!!!!
Is there a system for the "Quad" as well ? (4 exit pipes?)
We don't have authorized installers per se; but we can make some recommendations offline.Centerline: do you have authorized installers or recommended instalers close to DC metro area?
On the stock system the rear and center section are one piece. From memory it is about 4+ feet long. It fit pretty easily in the back of a medium sized SUV.Yo, Joe...kinda a different question...what's the longest length of the removed stock exhaust? Wondering how to drag it home if someone installs a Corsa.
While an SUV would make it easier. The two piece factory exhaust will go in the back of a Giulia with fold down seats, just. The tightest point was the width of the tail pipes which required rotating that part as well as sliding the passenger seat well forward. If your doing this make sure you have something to cover the dirty end of the pipe and protect the B pillar and seat back.Yo, Joe...kinda a different question...what's the longest length of the removed stock exhaust?
