I bought a 2017 Giulia Ti Lusso with only 6500 mi recently.

I've driven a version of '71-'74 GTV's nearly every day since 1973, so any interior malady I can sort out and fix on my own.

But with the Giulia, not so much. There's a piece of plastic dash fascia, about 9" long, that holds the sensor which automatically turns the headlights on and off. It sits mid-dash between the windscreen and the center speaker of the dash. This part sits flush to the dash all around except at it's right rear extremity. I am able to force it down into compliance, but it pops right back up...about a 1/4" too high. Has any other Giulia owner had this problem? If so. did you find a solution?

I assume you have a warranty? Have them fix it and ask what the heck? Then report back what the problem was. No issues with mine. Might be a broken part which they should replace. I am having them do everything until warranty is up and then I will do stuff on my own..., again. ;)

If mine has it I haven't noticed. I do like the Tach and Speedo being the same shape and in the same locations as they are on my GTV. There is a certain continuity I can appreciate.
