Decided they're too much work for me. I put on the rears, and they look nice but I'm going to with RallyArmor.
See this thread for shagghie's install...

Make me a reasonable offer (PM please) and I'll box up everything I have. They are new, and as I said the rears have been installed (will be removed today). Fronts new. You may need a couple of new plugs, but they can be obtained at Home Depot, etc etc for a couple of bucks.

FWIW, here what they look like from the rear. If you ignore the instructions and use a straight edge ruler to ensure consistent heights, the install isn't bad at all, but I feel for lagallinavecchia, if only because the instructions are written for the EU Abarths, which (apparently) have a different wheel well liner design. They are indeed very high quality though, and look like the cat's bollocks. Here's a pic from the rump: http://i60.photobucket.com/albums/h6/shagghie/image.jpg

No one? OK they aren't THAT hard to install. I just like the RallyArmor ones better and they're being installed this weekend.

Ready to ship.

Make an offer or they're going on my garage wall as 'Abarth Art' along with my stock suspension and shift assembly.

bump...these flaps are fooking awesome...I get compliments on them every. single. day. Install took 2 hours, and if you just use a straight edge for consistent height, they are an easy install...just throw away the instructions and use the self-tapping screws and you are good. Great price, too!

pffft. they just don't know what they don't know yet. Even with everything else on my car, the thing people compliment first, and most often about, lol, is the Flaps...(followed by the CF vinyl wrapped hood)

Hehe, I actually like them... and they looked good on. But I opted for the others because of the ease of install. (read: I'm lazy)
Trying to figure out what to do with graphics now. I dig the wraps, but I know they get spendy.

I had a guy do my hood for $60... you just have to find a hobbiest and buy the material for them. I've also heard pro wrap shops charging as much as $600 for the hood alone!!! Pfffft! In my case, my neighbor owns a sign shop and knows how to wrap really well...

Here's something you'll get a laugh out of. I called a company who I saw did the exact stripes I wanted to do. The guy had the gall to tell me it would be like $850. It better be hand laid gold leaf and pinstriped for that. He continued to try to justify the price by saying it was the best vinyl bla bla bla... I wasn't listening anymore at that point.

Are you close to Metro area NY? Usually that crap only happens in rural geographies ...but in metro ones, the competition is too fierce for gouging like that!

I certainly like my RallyFlapZ, and they are one of the first things people notice about the car. Took a while to get them on right, but now I plan to keep em.

Yes metro NY... the guy was in WA actually and was going to send me the stripes. So that price did not include install.

Here's the website http://www.northwestautosalon.com/

They did the exact stripes I wanted on a base 500. Too bad they wanted to fleece me and not work with me. I could have made them some cash on this site after people saw it. Oh well.

those are pretty I can see why you wanted them, but no way in hell that job is worth $800+. More like $150.

X2 ...Maybe $150 for graphix pack and another maybe $150 to install if taking a large amount of time to make sure it is 100% deadnutz spaced and centered perfect....in a high end shop. Clearly they gouge because most of their customers are high end clients.
