Yes, if you didn't like the Giulia's interior, you will hate the interior quality. Other than the fantastic seats, both the recaro's or leather buckets, it is a Mustang interior after all. All the money was put into the powertrain/dynamics.

The GT350 is more of the perfect second car. Own one nice and comfy everyday commuter, and then this for the weekends, that'd be a good combo.

Yeah exactly, it would be great as a weekend car. The Mustang is just an iconic car so I feel I need to own one at some point.

Normal Camaro SS's handle very well on runflats, they have good chassis not just good tires.
