As I see it, BMW appeals (has to, to succeed) to a much wider market than the Alfa. Many buy into BMW because of the competence of the overall package, not just driving dynamics, and that includes many driving enthusiasts.

BMW 3-series out sales the Alfa Giulia in Europe about 10:1. Guess we know who has got the right package for the users?

Then we have the issue of 3 different suspensions and the same for wheel sizes. Which combination is the 'sweet spot' for any particular user? Only test driving will sort that out for an individual, not any motor magazine review/opinion. Or any other user opinion for that matter.
