Have no more doubts about Giulia provenance

There's been many discussions and opinions about when Alfa Romeo seized to be true to its origins and which model was the last "real/true" Alfa. After bit of my own research I am now convinced that new Giulia is a real AR. Been reading up about the Giulia / Stelvio issues and tech bulletins. One issue that came up proves that after all there is an Alfa DNA in new Giulia:

Still got that good ol' Alfa stink!

There is a fix for it with new weatherstripping/gasket in engine bay'

Off to see local dealer for a Stelvio test drive, for a possible SUV replacement for wifey

The Giulia is awesome. You can easily tell it has Alfa DNA (no pun intended). I constantly have a grin on my face and now with the Centerline Corsa Exhaust I have no need for the sound system.

Didn't get what you mean.

Actually they let me have it for a day to convince my wife to lease it. It's a Vesuvio grey TI Sport and I'm loving it. Parked in front of my restaurant, got many positive comments on the looks. It drives and handles almost like a Giulia and feels nimble, much smaller and lighter than it actually is. Handling wise I like it better than X5 3.5 AWD that it hopefully will replace..

Sorry....my sense of humor. You said you might trade your wife for a Stelvio.
