I know that this forum is focused on US users.. but why!?
So, that's mine Giulia 2.2 Diesel (due to higher prices of gasoline on Europe) Q2 180cv Super on Blue Montecarlo.
It's a 2016, made on late 2015.. that's one of first pieces out of the line.
In love with his line and his handling. Not as yours QV, but.. enough for my pleasure :)

Benvenuto!. If you have any plans for a small trip north, let me know. All my family is in Belluno, Veneto. Panini con qualche bicchiere di vino will be in order !!!!!
Oh, nice! I’m sure that I can always find a cup of wine on a Veneto’s table :)

But a few years ago there was a factor of 2-3 difference between European and California fuel cost. Although some say production expenses have increased, the oil companies posting large increases in quarterly profits says otherwise. I suspect that the situation is different in Italy.
Higher raw material price and taxation

There are other Alfa forums which are more European focused. The main issues would be a lack of Diesel conversations and less likely to create a local Italian community for meets/events.
Don't warry.. I'll continue to read without interferences on US discussions

How common are Giulias and Stelvios in Italy? Last I went was in 2015 before those cars hit the market. Was in France and Switzerland in 2019 and really didn't see any.

I felt like hatchback Peugeot Citroen VW Renault even Seat were a common sight. Didn't see nearly as many luxury cars like 3-series, Q5 etc. which are so common in the US.
Not so much Giulia really, the most spotted are Stelvio.
Compared to C class, bmw 3, and A4, Giulia have not an high diffusion. It’s still a “sport” focused car, with not so many space inside

Yes, SUVs seem to be the main popular class of car from many years.
Mainly for his internal space, and immunity to the street holes 🤦‍♂️

You are welcome.
On 9-14th July I have to work, so I can’t say “come for a dinner”, but feel free to ask if you have any needs, any suggestions, or any issue. I’m here.
If you agree I can send you my phone number for direct contact. My speaking is not the best, but with text+speaking we can find a way :)

I have no idea if your license is valid on Europe.. may be
