Does the Giulia not warrant a category on this forum?
« on: November 27, 2017, 09:41:14 PM »
Hi all,

It is a rear wheel drive Alfa saloon.  And quite a good one at that.
Can we have a category on the forum for it please?

Cheers,
Marco

Well considering all Giulias will still be under warranty for some time, it's usually best not to tinker with them till warranty expires, hence one does something that violates the warranty, and as it is with such new cars, just about touching ANYTHING would do so.

Yep there should be a giulia forum, I think the rest of us are just envious or waiting for depreciation to kick in so we can buy one!

Agreed needs a sub forum. Been meaning to ask why it doesn't have an oil dipstick.

Because electronic oil level sensors are "sooo" reliable ?   ::)

Becasue BMW does not have one so its a selling point to be cool

For me, it isn't just about modding (apart from the exhaust I think).  It is more about learning and sharing.

I'm curious, would modifying the exhaust void warranty?

See you were right, it does need it's own category.   ;D

Hi! Sorry I missed your message Biggus.  You're right, we should create a new forum.  Bloody confusing model numbers now Stelvio is 949, Giulia is 952.  I'll ask our register captain for advice.

There you go - the 950 series cars can have their own board.  Happy now?  8)
