Greetings from Italy to you all,

...some pics with 20'' wheels and lowered just a touch (25mm).
I cannot go any lower than that otherwise I have issues with getting in/out from my garage. But I like the current setup so much and I wouldn't change it even if I could

I would like to change the V logo and emblem cover with carbon ones. What do you guys think, should I go for that ?

ciao

I could never lower this car. I would be scraping everywhere but it does look gorgeous.

As for a carbon scudetto and blacked out Giulia badge (my two cents)... I have a Vesuvio grey Giulia and added the CF scudetto and removed it after a couple of months. I know people like the “murdered” look with a black car but the silver scudetto offers a contrast that gives your car distinctive recognition from a distance. It is what makes an Alfa an Alfa. I did keep the Nero Giulia badge though, because again, the eye is drawn to the silver AR badge on the boot/trunk and there is more symmetry as well.

It looks fabulous lowered and with '20 wheels (y)
In regards to CF scudetto, I guess it's a matter of taste, and most importantly, you should like it.

I have just bought a carbon imitation scudetto of ebay, which i plan to put this weekend on my black Giulia Veloce. If useful, i will put before/after photo.

Looks great.
In my humble opinion, i prefer the silver scudetto, just because it looks more iconic. With a black/carbon scudetto , it would almost be invisible from a distance....and would kinda look like its "missing" (from what i've seen). But thats just me, im sure there are many who prefer it that way.

Cheers

Nice configuration. It looks amazing. The CF roof exposed on a black exterior car is something special. Where in Italy?

Can I ask what tyres you are running on. They look very low profile. What is the ride like on the tyre/wheel/suspension combination you have.

Bridgestone 245/30 and 285/25. I feel the car as more responsive. It's also stiffer and less comfortable as a result of that, but I like the handling much more than before.

How does rotating mass compare to the 19s? I'm guessing it's not too bad but could slow acceleration down a hair. Do they feel similar in weight with a wheel mounted when you switched them?

I live in Abruzzo (Roccaraso area)
I was going to say Abruzzo, but I had a coastal town pictured with the hills in the background and the building architecture - it just looks so familiar -

we are north of Pescara, on the coast, vicino a Giulianova

che bella macchina
