how many miles did you put on the silver one? I gues it must have been very reliable for you to jump into another.
Hi...I'm retired so I don't put on the miles the way I used to, but it had just over 15000 when turned it in. I had put the car on the track and it was amazing in pure stock form. But something happened at the dealer during a routine oil change and service. Three miles after picking the car, the motor stopped. It was at the dealer a week, and Alfa decided to give me a new engine. I just was not happy having a replacement engine installed at a dealership, it robbed me of faith in the car so that was the end of that. I bought a 996.1 911 Carrera 4 and drove that for a year, but in all honesty I liked the Giulia better. I sold the Porsche and got the current Giulia, which I truly love. And the idea of being able to add the paddles thrills me. I could have gotten one that already had them, but I didn't want all the other stuff that came with it...sunroof, TI trim, black wheels, sport seats. My Lusso had been perfectly equipped with mechanical LSD, the adjustable suspension, great leather dash, paddles, and that was it. I looked for another one before grabbing my black one. Putting paddles on this will make it a long term keeper.
