People in the US are lazy. Not to mention most autos can now shift faster than manuals...Hi Mastermiller
I drive the former model, the 166 with the beautiful 3 litre v6. A great car, italian style. Manual transmission, turn up to 7000 revs (I can't understand why so many people in the US prefere automatic shift!). The new Giulia is great to drive as well. I had a test drive. I didn't expect the 4 cylinder 2 liter with turbo would make so much fun. The new italian cars are better than their reputation. I drive mine (model year 2001) as a daily driver and it is absolutly reliable. Would like to hear from NBTBRV8 and his giulia.
kind regards, LkC
