Hello.

I´m a Stelvio diesel 2.2 210hp owner, and since the lack of "QV" packs on AR configurator when you buy your car (like BMW or other car brands do so that your car look a little bit more sportier and agressive and pop out of the rest models), and of course...the cost of the QV is much more expensive here in Portugal. 58€K vs 115K€ on base models without opcional. And the petrol cost here in Portugal.. versus Diesel.. when you rode almost more than 100km/day on daily bases.

My Configuration is almost 65K€ + 9K€ on original QV parts. (Steering wheel, Exterior trims, Wheelset, Bumpers, hood, Grilles, etc..)

I will leave here some pictures... and work in progress.. at some stages that I will try to get pictures to show.

Now... the Car at dealership arrival.





Thank you. :devil

Congratulations..Looks very nice..

I am surprised that yours does not have the foglamps..

I thought the Euro-Spec ones came with foglamps on the diesel models?

Congratulation!!!!... yourself.. NYCSTELVIO.
I see that I really got your full attention.

I intentionaly didn´t buy the foglamps... all the guys at the dealerships.. didn´t understand...
The answer is... that the Stelvio QV doesn´t have them... and since I made a direct factory order already with the QV project in mind... I don´t order them.. so that when I fit the front bumper of the QV model.. Don´t need to hide or ask for eliminate the fog lamps on the ECU. I didn´t want to have front panel errors.

That´s why. and the only reason.

The BMW M6 also don´t have the front fog lights. (When I fitted on my E64 the M6 front bumper, it was a real S*** to eliminate them.. only coding solve the problem. Hopefully I have a friend that is a BMW coding specialist. And he don´t do Alfa.. ehehehehehehe :grin

Well... now.. I can tell you apart of the money spending and all the research about "how" compatible is the parts between Stelvios...

Maybe in the end.. I can tell you more acurrately about the critic parts that must be bought, The parts that should buy.. but not critical... with some adaptation you can fit with the original "regular" Stelvios parts... and finally The parts that are not necessary.

I´m talking ... brackets, interior mounting parts, screws, ... etc...
in the bumper interior for correct fitment... side skirts and fender wheel arch.. per example.

The radiator center grille.. I bought the QV... because the mesh is diferent... Don´t want to have the stain in the white fabric.

I order the black mirror caps.. in the accessories.. but if it was now.. didn´t buy it... I rather "wraped" them in black vinyl.. but the excitement.. tooked me. :grin
Since I have the window sunroof.. and it is "black"... , glossy black roof rails, glossy black windows contour trims...I want to have some related "black" trims... like mirror caps.. maybe.. door handles... and rear badges.

:wink ehehehehhhe

It would definitely be really good to hear you experience as you go on with things. I like the idea of putting on the rear bumper, however it's difficult because of the exhaust (s). What is your plan for the rear bumper?

Hi JD123,

For the rear bumper its "simple"...
I will keep the original exhaust.. since the "tips" are fixed to the bumper.. only the exhaust will remain.
And than.. I will go to an Exhaust expert shop and ask to weld "Y" for the two "Slash exhaust tips".

Specs:
9,5 cm outer diameter
2,5 cm space between tips
Vertical aligned with the exhaust contour trim. (see pictures)

Have you done any of the exterior upgrades yet?! Excited to see them
Not yet... Waiting for "slot" at paintshop.
Hope that this week I will have some news..
Still no picked up the car at dealership.

Getting anxious to have the car.... and ready of course.
I feel your pain!! I'm in the same position... I get my car on the 13th of August. I'm not doing any major work like you but I have carbon fibre wing mirrors, antenna, front V grille and fourleaf badges all somewhere between China and the UK (where I live). I'm hoping they all arrive before I get my car so I can fit them straight away. I've also got it booked in to powder coat the alloys gloss-black the week I get it ?
