I own a 164S with that decade's version of active shocks. If they go out, there are no replacements, and if one were found (there has been one for sale), they cost $800 for just that one. Luckily, they can be rebuilt, which I did, but still, I also have an LS with Konis adjusted to approximately the same feeling and response of the shocks on the S (determined by many runs on the same roads and curves), and I do prefer those much less expensive (at the time) Konis over the S shock (unfortunately for 164 owners, those particular Konis are also no longer available, but that's a side issue).
Bottom line? IMHO, I'm not sure the adjustable shocks are worth it, considering the potentially expensive problems they will likely have in the future. If I were to buy a new Giulia, I wouldn't opt for those shocks.
Unless of course, you have enough money to not worry about it, lol, and thus being able to appreciate their alleged (and maybe esoteric) attributes and contributions to the suspension performance without that worry.
