Hi there!!! New member here thinking about trading in my focus st for a Giulia ti q2. My car is known for being unlaunchable which seems to be an issue with the lack of esc defeat on the Giulia, but that is not what really matters to me. I'm used to this, but where my car makes up is with super fast highway pulls and rolls driving in traffic. I'm wondering, how do the Giulias do with pulls, around town, and on the highway with fast maneuvers passing People? Thanks!

Welcome! I think take a test drive, they should let you test the torque range. In my Q4 I've had no problem keeping up / overtaking and I do it for fun a lot (hope i'm not on a-holedrivers.com) but take that all important test drive would be my advise.

I don't have one and don't have a burning need but it's meant to make it more responsive. Maybe try the Q4 and the Q2 out. Sure they'll let you and that way you'll have more fun :) Where about's in the world are you?

oh didn't you know?... when the Giulia spots another car it pumps Mortal Kombats "FINISH HIM" through the speaker.... ;)
I definitely heard that subliminal message in your Giulia at Palmer Motorsports!:grin2:

On the freeway and in town I too drive by the rules. There are just too many ways for aggressive driving to go wrong. On a country road with very little traffic things are very different.>:)

Indeed, highway pulls are for emergency situations only;)
I refer to it as invoking Our Lady of Blessed Acceleration. 0:)

"Spalanca!" According to Secondotestamale and Marchettino on YouTube. Love that guy Stefano. "I want to give you a punch!"

Just use more throttle displacement. You have to let the computer see what you want in the throttle map database grid.
