What have you bought for your Stelvio today?

Can we have a sticky with the above title.

It dilutes the “What have you done to your Stelvio today” thread when we (I) post things you’ve bought on it imo

Thoughts?

Ordered a set of oem carbon mirror caps and a carbon front scudetto, so while waiting I’ve also ordered black front and rear badges and black Q4 and Stelvio badges too. I’ll be hopefully do the install and swap in a couple of weeks if they get here by then.

Was thinking about this for quite a while but finally got a new gear shift lever for my Stelvio. It’s the newer style leather one with red stitching. I’ll be doing the swap in a couple of weeks.

I’d check the thread on Stelvioforum. I’m sure somebody said it not just a simple swap. If it is , get me one.
It came preprogrammed ready to fit and go. It’s just 4 x 10mm nuts to fit. No programming or any electronic wirzardry required and no faults etc. Haven’t done the swap myself yet (shifter arrived today at my brothers in Greece and will do it when we arrive) but a good friend did it only a few weeks ago with no issues in 10 minutes. I can message you the sellers info if you want, I paid 230€ for it. By the way, if you want you could order it and have it sent to my Greek address and I can bring it back for you mid August to save import tax vat etc if you like.

Got the Italian front plate mount. That was the easy bit.
now need to convince the missus of the merits of spending 250 quid on the cheapest 5 character plate as 7 is too long.
Just returned yesterday from our holidays and found the short plate mount waiting for me. I bought it while away and also managed to sneakily buy a cheap 5 digit plate too while at it. I'll be ordering the new plates and get it assigned next week probably and on to fitting them.

P.S: I don't think my wife will realise the number plate changes, or at least i hope 😇

Forgot to mention, that on my way back I made a small detour and went to Stephan at Squadra Tuning and got the ESC v2 fitted. I eventually chickened out of the actual tuning (the medio one) just to be on the safe side with the dealers/service if anyhing pops up. I'll eventually do it though, probably next year.

The dongle works really well by the way and finally I'll have the v6 soundtrack I love without turning off all aids

So much better with unobstructed scudetto area and the fins on the bumper. You don’t realise how much the full size plate blocks out until you try it with the short one.

What did you do with the rear? I’m planning to stick direct with no mount. A mount, other than needing a small size one, drips dirty water incessantly onto rear bumper lip when washing. Body work mount points are full of dirt residue. I am going direct to the body with tape all around the perimeter to block water going behind the plate. I still need to figure out which 3m tape is right.

Mine going on next week. I didn’t want to switch before going away on holiday as I wasn’t sure documents would come back on time and I didn’t want the car sitting there for 3 weeks with new v5c in the post box right next to it.
I kept the normal mount in the rear. You’re right about washing, dirt etc but nothing a good drying can’t take care off.
But if you do remove the mount and use tape, I’d suggest the 3M VHB for outdoors (that’s what I used for mounting the plates.
Also for me keeping the rear as is, is also useful since we’re travelling abroad in the summertime and this way I can have 🇬🇧 and the UK symbols on the plate without needing to stick one of those ugly white UK stickers on the bodywork.

Do you know the part no. for the non QV. Car is 71 plate Veloce?
Thanks
Here:


Did you get any further info from Alfa on this? I'm trying to order one for my car.

Edit: MacGeek has kindly confirmed that 50535783 is the correct part number for the Italian market front plinth. For future reference he has also advised that the part number for the smaller Italian plinth for the upcoming Stelvio Quadrifoglio is 50552824 in case any potential buyers of that version also want to fit a smaller front plate.
