Have toyed with (without permission from the wife) about selling her pristine (rust and dent free) low mileage 89 Milano (I think it may be worth a reasonable amount) and buying either a used or new Giulia, even given the faults we think it has.
She doesn't care all that much for the body of the Milano, but sure likes the additional power over her fav 78 Alfetta sedan she used to drive. I'm not sure, though, that she would like the auto tranny, she being used to in her entire driving life and liking a manual. Plus, based on our experience with fully equipped infotainment systems in rentals, she doesn't think well of those as well.
Oh well, haven't run it past her. Kind of afraid to, lol, she being the bookkeeper, etc. However, if we were to run across a nice used dark blue rear wheel drive Giulia TI...
BTW, saw another Giulia yesterday. We didn't recognize it at all until we had passed it, then seeing the grill in the rear view mirror. From the rear, looked like every other Asian car.
