Not sure how well the Alfa is selling overall in the US, but here in Northern California, I have been driving my TI Sport for 10 weeks and I have yet to see another on the highway, including the highly trafficked Interstate-80 and San Francisco Bay Area....interesting.

I have actually seen a number of Levantes, but no Stelvios.....and wayyy too many Q3a, Q5s, and Macans

Same here- observed a lady in an F-Type eyes locked as I passed by. She obviously made the wrong choice. Same day I was visiting a vendor and overheard one of his guys super excited about the 'badass' Alfa SUV in the parking lot. It's been quite a while since anything I own could be called badass! Maybe it's the yellow calipers or 20" wheels?! We might want to establish something similar to the 'Jeep wave' LOL

I have yet to see one driving in the Orlando area. But then, I work from home so I don't get out much lol! Still, thought I would have seen at least one. I've seen a couple Giulia's and a Spyder too. No Stelvio's though.

A woman in a Volvo SUV stopped me in the restroom of a travel stop yesterday and asked me all about my Stelvio. She went on and on about how beautiful it was. She'd never seen one and had previously owned an Alfa many many years ago. She said she was looking for something fun (after years of safety conscious Volvos).

Hi, I haven't seen on one the road yet (L.A./O.C. area), but I get a lot of stares. I've had people look at it at the car wash and in valet. They've said it's a very nice car and love the color (Montecarlo Blue).

Funny I just read this thread this morning and just saw my first one in a very odd place a few hours ago. I used to live right outside NYC and you pretty much see every car imaginable in that area. Now I live in a "rural" northwest part of NJ, mostly farms, tractors, and pickup trucks from the 80's LOL. Was shocked to see it out here "in the wild" for sure. Must have been from PA because the first thing I looked for was where they put their license plate and there was none.

Vesuvio Grey - knew instantly when it was coming down the road what it was :) Definitely not like the rest...

The only Stelvio I saw was in front of a Costco on display in La Mesa, CA - in the burbs of San Diego. Costco must have a buyer program. It was a stripped model.

I love the fact that Alfa's are not selling like hot cakes. It make's it very exclusive, almost like driving a prototype!!

I live in Austin, Texas and have seen one in the local mall parking lot and two on display at outdoor malls. Pretty rare so far.

I have not seen any Stelvios on the road yet. We even took ours on it's first road trip, OH. to Fla. where we only saw one Giulia on the trip.
The Stelvio did cause quite a stir at the local auto parts store the other day. I had lots of questions and plenty of admirers!

I don't know about the prototype aspect but i agree with you in that I like it to stay more exclusive. Alfa is not geared to produce like the big boys, so if demand goes up the price will follow.

I checked Costco and they do have a Alfa buyer program. Incidentally, Carplay was an option on the Costco order sheet.

Just back from Don Jackson Alfa in Atlanta with my Rosso Stelvio! I'll take pics, it's a very nice car, had an evoque a couple years which had the awful 9-speed tranny, this stelvio shifts smoothly! Handling is very nice, it has the sport suspension option
