New to the Alfa Romeo Family...

New to the Alfa Romeo family (2019) after 16 years with Acura. A balance of performance and styling in vehicles provide value, thrill and excitement for me. I'm really looking forward to see where this new journey with Alfa Romeo leads.

I went with two a week ago Saturday...

- 2019 Stelvio Sport Q4 - Nero - Vulcano Black, Red - 20" Nero Wheels

- 2019 Giulia Sport Ti Q4 - Nero - Stromboli Gray, Black - Staggered 19" wheels (9"w rear, 8"w front)

I installed Madness GOPedal Plus mods on both this weekend (wow) and will have the Max Power Pro piggyback going in this week.

I am absolutely smitten with these vehicles!

Yes! I slept on the decision Friday night and I kept going back to the positive experience you shared and overall enthusiasm you conveyed and I thought, "That's a brand I want to be a part of. That's how I used to feel about Acura..." So, thank you for your candid review and your part in my decision making process! I could not be happier--an absolute unparalleled driving experience. I joined AOC (Buckeye) last week, looking forward to this adventure!

Absolutely! I'll be up at Crown on Saturday to have the MaxPower Pros installed (also having the spoiler installed on the Giulia). Which combo in the Stelvio did you pick up?

Happy to be here--and thank you! I'll add some more pics of both at the bottom of this post--and correct, red interior on the Stelvio and black on the Giulia.

I can't wait to get the MaxPower Pros in. The GOPedals alone really brings out the characteristics of the engines--I'm looking forward to seeing what a small tune will garner! I'll be sure to post a review!

More pics from the past week and a half...

I'll look for you on the road! I've only seen about 5 others in the CBUS area since getting mine in December. I wanted two in the garage but my wife got the A5 instead :-(
I didn't think a dealer would install the GOPedal and MaxPower stuff, I'll have to give Crown a call.

I joined the AOC Buckeye chapter last week--I'm hoping there are some meets coming up (from what I understand, the AOC Buckeye chapter meets monthly at Planks, trying to confirm the dates). I've only seen a few AR's in Columbus--I've had a lot of people come up to me and ask what the vehicles are (especially the Stelvio with it's stealthy badging on the Vulcano Black). Having two presents its own issues as I double up on things like GoPedals and MPP's For the installs of the MPPs, it is good to know that we have a dealer that supports (at least piggyback) tunes. When reading up on them, I see some owners remove the parts completely before servicing their AR's.
