I have used AlfaOBD significantly for my Ram 1500 way before the Giulia was released. It looks like most use MES on this forum, but since I already purchased it I thought I would use it (and it has Alfa in the name...)

I finally took the time to hook it up to the Giulia. I was able to connect to the instrument cluster and BCM but could only make changes on instrument cluster. Received buffer full error on the BCM (ordered a grey adapter).

The instrument cluster did have one setting I made was disabling the seat belt chime. PSA: I don't condone no seatbelt, but I really dislike the obnoxious ding in scenarios.

It also has the service data reset option for after oil change/service too.

If anyone else use alfaOBD and has any insight please share and/or if you had the buffer full error, if the grey adapter resolved it.

not sure, but I would also immagine it depends on your software version of the software...... With the giulia/stelvio, a lot of new CAN ECU's were introduced, together with hi-speed lan etc.
Probably older Alfaobd version(s) will not be able to recognise these.....

Mine was updated to a 2020 version, so I would think it would support a 2017 but might have to use a newer android tablet to get to the most recent. Ordered the adapters to try too, otherwise might need a better OBDII adapter.
