    Alfa Giulia
    Hi everyone I believe I'm seeing better levels of USB audio integration from Apple phones (over Androids) with the first generation Infotainment system on my 2017 Giulia. If so then it "steers" me towards choosing Apple's over Android's.... Is this what others see too? If you have tried this...

  15. No 'oomph' in 1st?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    OK, so I love my 156 V6 and it absolutely flies, but I often feel it's somewhat lacking in 1st, revving away and not really laying down the speed to match. Once I get it into 2nd though it feels like it's going to take off by comparison. And before you say it I'm not changing gear like a slouch...
