I came from 2004, 2008, 2010 Infiniti G Sport Coupes with manual trannys which I loved, but then went into a G35 sedan and than a Q50. While it seemed like I would’ve stayed with the brand, they weren’t too willing to work getting me back into a coupe... which in the long run, works for me. Much happier in my Giulia... and returns me back to my Italian roots. 76’ Alfetta GTV, Mille Miglia edition and a 76’ Fiat X19. Just hope she’s more reliable than her cousins.My '19 Giulia TI Sport Carbon replaced a '16 Infiniti Q50 Red Sport. Giving up a good bit of straight-line speed, but gaining so much better handling and style. The Q50 was 400hp worth of fun, but didn't have much personality. The stock exhaust was dead-quiet, the engine was smooth but muffled, the steering (non-DAS) was OK, but kinda numb, and the infotainment system was archaic, although not as bad as auto journalists would have you think. The Giulia doesn't feel slower in most situations, mostly because of the high-torque and the lightning-fast shifts when using the paddles.
Prior cars were '13 Infiniti M37xS (now called the Q70), '11 Infiniti G37xS, '08 Infiniti G37xS, '05 Chrysler Crossfire SRT-6, '99 Pontiac Trans Am.
It's fun to see the crazy variety of cars everyone came into the Giulia from. Great thread.
