I think I read 200 milliseconds.

One thing I had to adjust to was not backing off the throttle on upshifts. The shift is so fast the motor doesn't speed up.

Man I love this car. Amazingly, my wife loves it too. She has hated all of my other Alfas.
hahaha. my wife hated all of mine too, especially the 164 only because I always had bloody knuckles owning that thing. She loves the Giulia!
