This person trained every Alfa salesmen in America. But to answer your question, it would not surprise me if they made this change at the next model year. LED's are more efficient.

I've read that the speakers were kept smaller and lighter to save weight for the car, but I'm not sure about this. Harmon Kardon has a great rep, so I'm not sure why it doesn't sound very good in this car.

The standard audio system in my Grand Cherokee is ten times better.

It's a good thing the engine sounds so good! But its a little disappointing when driving to work, and not thrashing the car, that the sound system couldn't be better.
I had the Giulia predecessor a 159. It had the Bose upgrade and did sound rather good. Not sure what is going with Alfa in the Giulia. I have heard it said by folk here on a UK based Alfa site I use that the upgraded system is not worth the cost.

I have swapped that 2006 Alfa for a 2004/5 (December car) Mercedes CLK. The standard sound system in that matches the Bose in my old 159 Lusso. Go figure.

😂 You are right LED's are more efficient and more special, I think Alfa should have an iconic LED Headlamps design, like the BMW and Volvo's, so when you look at you know this is Alfa Romeo

The Stelvio in 2018 and a Giulia with new headlights and maybe a new 350hp Hybrid Veloce Giulia!!!! I have now seen 3 customer Giulia's on the street in the Chicago area. It took until early May.

I mean that the new lights won't be on Giulia Model Year 2018 (due later this year), but will come in a further model year. 350hp version isn't in the MY18 product grid either, so far.

MY18 US grid looks like this:

No hybrid....That's to bad. They are probably to busy working on more SUV's...Does Maserati have anything other than the GranTurismo refresh?? The good Maserati is on hold (Alfieri Coupe)!!

The 350hp is coming. I just have no info suggesting it will be for MY18.

The team responsible for the new Alfas is also working on future Maserati products.

I heard that they are especially grabby and hard to modulate until you get used to them due to the brake by electronic wire system.

Maybe something a future software flash could fix...

most of the inventory in the US has the CCB, very few with the standard brakes.

Yes, the dealers are loading them with options.

Yes it's the new "Veloce" version -- and a 2 door coupe and convertible coming as well. I'd like the 2dr coupe, especially if it looks a bit better from the rear. The Stelvio definitely has a better looking backside than the Giulia 4 door.

Alfa is doing a pretty good job of holding back on excessive QF inventory in the market. But for sure they will drop. I had the same idea but I'd still like a coupe over a 4 door.
