Bag absolutely fits, with driver (I am 6'2" clubs were correct size) can confirm

I took the car to my course of choice only twice, quit the game shortly thereafter, but I think the car fit in the parking lot just as good as my previous RR

Have fun, nice elegantly spec'd Giulia

Will this work?

I found I can fit my set of golf clubs crosswise, side to side in the trunk of my Guilia if I take out the cover of the battery compartment and lay that cover flat over the battery. That extra space over the battery allow me to insert my golf bag. See any problem with covering the battery in this manner?

I can think of several things that might go wrong. I cannot say if these things actually will happen:

1) Frequently opening the battery access lid may wear out the Velcro retainers on the lid, causing whatever issue the Velcro was supposed to resolve (rattles?) to start happening.

2) Resting objects on top of a battery may damage wires and/or cause short circuits (short circuiting a battery can be really bad). You have a lot of insulating materials between the wires and your clubs though, so maybe you are OK.

3) From the inside of the battery box there is no padding to the the right rear fender. If your bag and/or clubs should shift due to hard cornering (hard cornering in a Giulia? Who would do that? :)) or bumps in the road you could end up with dents in your fender.

4) Even though the battery is ventilated there may be golf club attacking acid and/or extremely toxic lead salts around the battery.

The closed bottom end of the bag, which is plastic, goes into the battery compartment. No danger of metal golf clubs touching the battery. The battery is totally covered with the door of the compartment cover.

My Alfa is rarely taken to the golf course. This particular time, I'm taking the Alfa to the dealer for a software recall and while the work is being done, I'll go play golf nearby.

I'm also going on a 3,000 mile trip with the Alfa this summer so I want the dealer to give it an inspection to make sure all conditions are GO.

Thanks guys. Well I took her to the course and it was a wash out. Got 7 holes in, wind, rain, and cold. It feels like February here in Chicago. No one got to see my girl.

Next Sunday. Next Sunday it will be nice.

But I still got to drive her today, even took the "extra" long way home.

I'm looking to head to the golf course soon as well. It's been since last July that I've golfed and I'm itching given that we had an interminably long winter. One thing I may invest in is the Weather Tech trunk guard, actually. I don't always remember to wash my clubs after a round of golf (with a few drinks of course).

I'm assuming they don't fit diagonally.....Why not fold down one of the seat thirds and use a towel to cover the open end of the bag if the clubs are dirty ? One of the advantages of the non Quad Giulias is rear seats that fold.....D

Do any golf courses have policies regarding enhanced exhaust systems?

The clubs do not fit in the trunk horizontally unless you drop the back seat and stick them in. Not a problem, I keep the clubs as clean as the Giulia.

That's a good idea. For such a small amount of room needed it would work for me. Maybe a new lid can be made with a dent in it?

You can fit two carry bags diagonally with woods removed. Then just kinda squeeze the woods in on top of the bags. Maybe the Italians don’t golf much but easily fitting clubs ought to be a requirement... IMHO

I visited the Alfa dealer today and asked them about my method of storing my golf bag side to side in the trunk by removing the door to the battery compartment and laying it flat over the battery. They said there is no problem doing it that way as long the terminals of the battery are covered.

I had the software update recall done and it was seamless. I also had them check fluids/tires/brakes in preparation for a summer driving trip. All done with a smile and a car wash http://www.giuliaforums.com/forum/images/GiuliaForums/smilies/tango_face_angel.png
