I spoke with a local racing shop a few months ago about having them install the camber kit from GMS in the spring when I flip back to summer wheels/tires Absolutely. Did you do -2° in the rear as well? I do one track day a month in spring/summer/fall at this point. May try do do a full weekend as well. I will probably not spend the money on the forged wheels for awhile but will down the road, I hope. I burned through the stock pads in 2 track days and daily driving in those 2 months. I put on EBC Blue Stuff pads when I had a second set of dark 5-hole wheels with the Micheline Alpin winter tires in early November. I hope to convince my wife I need the Tarox rotos and pads this spring. Definitely more to do. Thanks for listing your mods and recommendations. Happy New Year.If you are planning to track your car, I strongly recommend GMS camber and castor correction kit, otherwise you will destroy outer edges of the front tyres very quickly. Another benefit would be better grip in the corners, therefore better laptimes. If you set the front camber at -2° camber, it should be daily drivable and track usable. Rear camber is adjustable without any mods. Better pads are another "must do" mod for track use (with heat shields). And ST Springs might be the third mod, but not neccasery.
I actually bought my Giulia for the same reasons as you did. A car that has to transport up to 4 people in comfort on a long yourneys, while at the same time offering me fun at track days. I did all the above mods, except the pads, but I have time till spring/summer when track days will start. I use Classico wheels (5-hole) for summer tyres (Michelin 4S), and Technicos for winter tyres (Michelin PA4), and I will also use Technicos for potential future track days (I have a set of Corsas P Zero for that).
You can actually get forged Classico wheels in 19" for the Giulia; but design itself is taken from Stelvio's 20" wheels. Stelvio 5-hole wheels actually look more agressive and modern, which I like a lot. However they are custom made and therefore expensive, but if I would have 5000€ to spent I would get them...
