Tan leather trim upgrade
« on: August 02, 2021, 08:39:29 AM »
Hi all,
I'm looking at used Giulia's and they all seem to to be trimmed in black leather.
New options seem to be only black or red.
But tan is the colour for me.
Were they ever brought into Oz in tan?
Is there an upgrade path to swap out the black for tan?

I've seen a lot of black Giulia's around with tan trim.

yes, i'm probably looking at the wrong end of the market.
On carsales i have to get up to about $80k to get one in tan.

I feel a bit silly.. I only had a quick look and thought that was brown!

In my defence I’m colourblind.. don’t let me choose s#hit or dress myself

Errr…

There’s likely enough info on that (now very public) doc to *try* and have your mobile service moved to another phone/carrier.  Steal your identity (email by resetting your password with SMS), access your email history, access bank accounts, cancel your rego, sell your house/wife/children/dog
