    Yes. And I get silly and irrational bonding with my cars, voluntarily selling is tough. Even my nightmare 928, I kept for years longer than I should have.

    are you running steel or CCB on the car? I regularly track mine. The brakes are incredible on this car. I have a 2018 and it’s lowered slightly as well. About the same height of the 2017. That being said, yes, you do have to angle out of driveways at times. I’ve yet to scrape a speed bump though.

    On the track, it’s amazing. While I have driven in dynamic mode, it’s not good for the track due to the collision avoidance system. I had that engage on me at big willow down the front straight when coming upon some traffic at 140. The cars still accelerates almost as raw as Race mode in Dynamic, through all the gears. I’ve never experienced any power cut off at all. And surprisingly, in race mode, with everything off, the car is very predictable and controlled. There is no bucking or anything even remotely close to that. It’s precise and direct. The only thing that took a little use to doing was committing to 120 going into turn 8 at Willow and trusting the car near the limits. Getting the tire pressure right is something that is key with the car. I switched to PS4S’s, which might not have the track grip of the Pirelli, they are much better at allowing you to feel out the car. As well, better daily drive tires. I was running about 6 seconds faster than my tuned 4C there and truth be told, I could have shaved off a lot more if I wanted to drive it to the edge. However, it’s my daily and I cared more about getting it home in 1 piece over bragging rights. Lol

    as far as tunes goes, look into Pogea racing’s QV. it pushes slightly over 600HP. You can have the exhaust valves open in dynamic, full throttle and traction control. Which for some, is a big deal. My only 2 gripes with this car would be, when on the track, even in race mode, it’s too quiet. Also, like you said, the damn auto off button should be that you could have it Permanently disabled.

    Over 200k buys you lots of other cars. This one is 4 doors 2 seats. But its a real special, something of a keeper.I suppose f you have the money to just add one to the collection ie the expense is not an equation, it makes terrific sense.

    Anyone have their first (1 year) service done on a non-Quad Guilia (mine's a 2020)? One dealer (closer to me) sez $279.95, the other dealer sez "first service is free." Just don't want to drive it farther and wind up paying more ;)

    1st service is an oil change and fluid check, overall a looking look and it is free.

    Get a set of Fabspeed HFC 200 cell and a Stradale exhaust and your too quiet gripe will disappear lol.

    @Fabspeed Motorsport The Black QV and the White QV that you did belong to Giulia Forum members that I know. I had your HFC in my E92 M3 and with only stock cans she wailed like a banshee at full tilt....will be getting a set for my QV very soon
