Saying it was great being here.. learn a lot about my first Italian machine.

But had the itch for 6mt again. and got myself a 2021 M3.

I will definitely chime back in here to give my own opinion between the 2 once I get more seat time.

Taking my last drive to drop off the beauty to dealership , while my wife is having fun rowing the stick in front ...

I get the 6MT addiction. Almost caused a fight with my wife when I decided to get the Giulia as I had "forced us" into so many cars demanding a proper clutch. Congrats on the purchase!

I know this is sexist (and apologies in advance to anyone offended), but a wife driving a MT here in the States? I am impressed.

LOL.. I learn how to drive manual from her car 20 years ago.. while I drove LandCrusier then

The face isn't pretty but performance is great plus the 6-speed is a major bonus. The Giulia is the first automatic car I've had in a very long time. The ZF8 is excellent for an automatic (even BMW uses it) but I do still miss rowing my own gears. Congrats!

Enjoy your new ride. I don't get it. That grille is deal breaker for me but as my grandmother always said, "That's why there is more than one flavor of ice cream."

Fair play, I'd love to hear your thoughts between the two.

Wow, that front end looks like utter $hit.

Congrats on the new car and please let is know how you like the Bimmer versus the Alfa!

I went the opposite way when I purchased my 2.0L Giulia 3 years ago. I have never owned an M3, just a lowly 325i and then a slightly sluggish 525i, the latter of which my stepson drives daily (and I still fix... :rolleyes: ) . The older model 325 was not a bad car handling-wise and I thought that it looked great. Front styling of the new M3 is perhaps not BMW's finest moment. The grille is only beaten for worse looks by some Lexus models...

That front end looks terrible in pictures, but I've seen one in person and it looks a lot better than I thought it would.

That M3 will kick ass, have fun.
