I've had my Giulia Quadrifolio now for just a few days and I'm really enjoying it. The specs are Vulcano black, black interior with red stitching, Sparco seats, CCM brakes, and dark 5-hole wheels. I would of preferred the black/red interior but this spec is so close to what I wanted that I can't complain.

I was cross shopping the Quadrifolio with the BMW M3 and came very close to buying the latter. I did three M3 test drives (two DCT, one manual) and I also attended the M School at Thermal Club raceway. After test driving two different Quadrifolio's I decided this was the car for me.

I''m glad to have found a good forum for Giulia owners and look forward to reading about everyone's experiences, both good and bad.

2nd wave. Not sure how many came over on the second boat.

Only a handful have shown up at dealer listed website advertising. Perhaps that is because the second shipment were pre-ordered cars for pre-purchas owners.

This is different from the pre spec cars that a lot of us bought in December or January. The pre-spec cars were mostly 17xxx and 18xxx

Smart move to bring her home, I would do the same. Hopefully you'll be back on the road soon and can start enjoying the car again.

Congratulations! I am in SF Bay area as well.
Which dealer did you buy from and any discount off MSRP?
I had to go out of state to get mine, but no discount. I tried Walnut Creek and they had just sold one. Bakersfield had just sold what they had as well and Niello in Sacramento had one in stock for $10K over, but it was gone fairly quick. Bakersfield still shows one in stock, the same one I called about, so maybe the deal fell through and it's still available?

Off-topic--- was in Walnut Creek a few years ago (live in the Philly area). Walnut Creek is an awesome suburbia everything area away from the SanFran mayhem. That's my quick East-Coaster summary. :)

Great news!

I contacted service and based on my VIN my car needs three updates. If I recall correctly they were for, his words, random check engine lights, remote start, and forward collision. Nothing about the tail lights though. Please let me know if they do anything to your tail lights.
