Use the correct battery charger depending upon the battery type. Information only. Somewhere, somehow, Giulia batteries were probably torched during non-running software updates in which an incorrect battery charger was used.

Cool. Glad to see that the navi updates were released to the mass market. This should make it easier for anyone with the old version. If anyone cares, YES its worth the time taking the car to the dealer to get the navi update.

i think i might have a turbo cooler O ring leak

my secondary reservoir was almost empty and i see traces of pink goo around near where the turbo is (right hand side all the way down the side to the barge board can see pink )

luckily spotted and have refilled both reservoirs and watching for any drop in levels ... all seems good

wondering if i can control the leak by not pushing it hard until it gets replaced, dealer is waiting on parts

What antifreeze did you use?
The factory fill is Petronas Paraflu UP with a Fiat Spec 9.55523 and a Chrysler spec MS.90032

it was given to me by a dealer, it should be about $10 US
Maybe $10. a quart, plus shipping, if you can find it.
So the dealer "gave" it to you.
Did they top it up, or give you the fluid to refill yourself?
Was it in a Petronas container? What size bottle?

1 quart = 1.665348 pints (UK) or 0.208169 gallons (UK) or 0.946353 Liter so its a volume unit of measure in the US
