Today I swapped the chrome badges for the nero ones. Off came the chrome Ti (2), Q4, and Giulia, on went the nero versions. Against the black paint, they look amazing. Especially the Ti with the red i. I have never removed nor swapped out a badge before. I was nervous how it would look but very happy with the outcome.

Pictures, please.

Installed paddle shifters in my Stelvio Ti.
Found a good deal on a complete sport steering column with paddle shifters on ebay.
Also picked up a sport paddle shifter compatible steering column cover.
The top shells are the same, just the bottom one is modified to have the cutouts for the paddle arms.
Makes sense, only one piece bring different lowers extra parts.
Installation went really smooth and activation was easy.
Looking back on the older threads, it's funny how when the models were new, people said it wouldn't work.
Amazing to find all the wires and connectors sitting there waiting for someone to come along and add the paddles.

Does your car have the SGW? I've got paddles installed in my 2020 TI, but now I'm waiting for the MES hardware to arrive. Just curious how difficult is activation.

I did the opposite... What did you do to your Alfa Romeo Giulia today?

@Alfatrooper congrats on getting the paddle shifters! I’ve been wanting to do the same to my Giulia Ti, but I have a ton of questions. However, I’ll start with these:
1. what was the total cost of the install?
2. What is the level of complication?
3. Does doing this void a warranty?

Total cost $260 for the he paddles (attached to a steering column and the steering column cowl) sourced through eBay.
I already had the multiecuscan and adapters.
Install took me about an hour, taking my time, removing the air bag and steering wheel, and reassembling.
Overall, very easy.
It's stock and all oem, so I don't see it affecting warranty.

Finally installed the SGW with extension cables on my car. It wasn’t that bad once I realized that with the bottom steering cover removed, I can sit in the drivers seat and reach under the column with my right arm, like reaching under the table, and get those connectors off. Now I’m ready to clear any codes on Wednesday’s track day!
