Awesome!

I see enough model 3ís. Theyíre hideous. Sorry. I wouldnít be caught dead driving one.

This car does ooze character. And hopefully not too many gremlins.

My rental of one in Germany last summer (covering about 1,200 km) was awesome.

Congratulations, Alex! My pulse quickens every time I walk past a Giulia. Best looking sedan in long, long time. I've read the handling praise as well, sounds like the A5 served its purpose.

Are Alfa's covered by Mopar warranties? I bought a mopar warranty from a dealer in Michigan at pretty much cost.

Yep, itís a Mopar warranty. I got the pricing from Zieglerís in Michigan, which the local dealer then matched.

Alex was kind of of to give Clyde and me a test drive last night. We pulled into a parking lot to switch drivers and took the opportunity for a couple photos.

It is a very good looking car.
