but have to go for another visit next week – because axle measurement wasn't done properly IMO
BTW anyone had the issue that the rear axle isn't properly mounted exactly in the middle of the car? looks like mine has been mounted 7mm to the left side which is not cool.

well, this car is brand new, 3 weeks old or so...
I noticed while mounting the 20" (grew from from 9x19" to 10x20" on the rear axle and now it is clearly visible because tires are simply broader)
but after the lowering yesterday it's even better visible.

Has it all been fitted off centre or is one driveshaft longer than the other? A long time ago I know but some Escort Mexicos had odd length driveshafts, and this caused the left rear wheel to rub when cornering hard, but not the right!

I have no idea THB but lets see what the next company says 🙈

That is one seriously impressive garage!
it is, but unfortunately its in the company of a friend 😅
mine is the small one in the very first pic. not that impressive but I am happy that I got it. And I could slap me in my face that I didn't build it bigger, fitting for 2 cars...

Fitted my C-Tek pigtails and battery monitor to my new Giulia. Much more of a faff than fitting them to a Stelvio!

Changed the floor mats for OEM rubber ones for the winter, very sturdy and classy (for rubber mats :))

Also fitted an OEM rear seat protector to protect the alcantara seats from my Min Pin. Not very stylish but it does the job!

OEM Boot mat (very expensive for what feels like a lightweight piece of polystyrene but it fits well) as well as the flip over from the boot bumper protector from my sold Stelvio, which to my surprise fits perfectly.

The Mopar Black Friday week fell at exactly the right time :D

I fitted this rear seat protector in my Giulia. It's fine for chucking bags and coats in

My boot mat is a rubber one I bought way back in 2008 for my Honda CRV it's been used in my Civic, Giuliettas and now Giulia. It's not perfect but covers almost all the floor space.

Being a 20 year veteran of office jockey life, combined with about 10% of my working time devoted to rep-mobiling my way around the country/world, I have become extremely good at sitting down.

So much so, that it has always irked me that the accelerator pedal and the left foot rest do not quite align in my Giulia. My left heel is slightly further forward than my right, which throws off my finely balanced, expert sitting position.

Not any more... With some jigsaw bodgery, a bit of half inch ply and a cheapo footrest off eBay I have packed up the height of the footrest to my satisfaction and made it look, while not exactly factory, at least not like a lump of ply.

Much more ergonomic. My spine will thank me in later years I'm sure.

Great minds.. I have just shelled out the princely sum of 26 quid (Ali Express does it again) to get the full triple set of Chinese 'sport' pedals that appear to be identical to yours. I'm sure that fitting the brake pedal is going to be a b*stard, but your plywood mounting of the footrest is a masterstroke. Question is, what is attaching the plywood to the underlying carpet? Is is bitumen leaking out the side there?!?
