Who is Alfa Romeo? This history on the Alfa Romeo website and Wikipedia article provide a little bit of insight....Enzo Ferrari started his racing career with Alfa Romeo. The history of the Alfa Romeo crest/badge can be found HERE.

This 2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Veloce Ti was purchased from Beverly Corte at Alfa Romeo of Daytona, she responded within minutes of my AutoTrader inquiry and answered all of my questions- VERY responsive. Pics below are from the dealership ad.
The new Veloce trim package replaces last years Ti Sport package.

I decided the first mod would be Alfa Romeo All Weather Mats (P/N 82216004AB) and Alfa Romeo Cargo Liner W/ Subwoofer (P/N 68418513AA) from Alfa Online Parts.
Benny Robles runs the show at Alfa Online Parts and has provided GREAT customer service despite all the FedEx trials and tribulations!

 

Prior to taking my car in for PPF, I decided to remove the Veloce emblems from the fenders. Later I decided the Q4 and Stelvio emblems had to go, I think debadged is cleaner looking. Park the car in the sun and/or use a hair dryer to warm the double sided tape/adhesive. You can then use fishing line/dental floss OR a plastic trim removal tool to carefully remove the emblems. Typically there is some tape/adhesive left behind, I use a pinstripe removal tool with a drill to get the worst of it off and then follow that with WD40, not a great lubricant but great for fishing and adhesive removal. Next, throughly wash the area with soap and water to remove the WD40, dry, and wax.

 

Xpel Ultimate Plus Paint Protection Film (VIDEO) on the bumper/front fenders/mirrors/door handles/windshield trim installed at Sun&Shield Automotive Films, my go-to guys for paint protection. I would post pictures but you can't see it

 

Xpel did not have a pattern available for the Stelvio rocker panels so I bought OEM splash guards (OE P/N 50903569) from eBay seller carpart777.
I also sourced Ford 1019287 Mud Flap Clips to utilize as per Dareek's Stelvio Forum post, in my opinion a better alternative than drilling holes for the front splash guards.
Forum threads HERE, HERE, and HERE.

 

Installed Stuff4Car Start Stop Deactivator from Alfissimo.
Installation Instructions HERE and Installation Video HERE.

Forum thread HERE for alternative method of achieving this.

 

Purchased pre-owned Alfa Romeo 164 jack on eBay, nice to have on trips.....and I happened to have the required 17mm adapter (left over from my old Fiat 124 jack kit) that works for the Stelvio with the 164 lug wrench.
Some forum discussion on the spare tire option HERE.

 

NOTE: The following is provided for informational purposes only, user assumes all risks. At least one forum user has had issues as detailed HERE. Most of the forum write-ups are using power/ground into the light/rain sensor (where this user had an issue), same color wires are present in the mirror plug if that seems more desirable....or you might not decide this worth the risk- YMMV.

Valentine 1 Gen2 radar detector (Owners Manual, Quick Start Guide, Programming Guide, Troubleshooting, How To Upgrade) hardwire installed using a Xislet Radar Detector Hardwire Power Cord Mirror Plug Tap with Inline Fuse from Amazon, I used the cord with the smallest pins. A good forum thread on how the trim pieces come apart/off to access the mirror plug is HERE.
Using the Bluetooth connection to the V1 from my Android phone with the JBV1 app adds a lot of useful functionality- Some discussion around the JBV1 app can be found HERE, helpful settings guide HERE.

Started with the suction cup mount but a BlendMount (P/N BV1-3030) was ordered and installed later (Installation Instructions HERE). Customer Support with BlendMount is AWESOME


 

Alfa Romeo did not give us an AGM battery so I decided to proactively purchase and install an AGM battery-
An Odyssey ODP-AGM49 H8 L5 from FCP Euro with their LIFETIME guarantee (Odyssey specifications HERE), Also available from Amazon.

Owner's Manual HERE, Technical Manual HERE, Ultimizer Charger Manual HERE, Warranty Information HERE.
