OK, I have to throw at least ONE pic of my old, similarly colored, Lotus Elise!

Love it! By far my favorite color and option package!!! I have been seriously considering one of these for when my Abarth is paid off. It would be a perfect commuter car for me (work is only 14 miles away)

If you stretched out the Fiat in a taffy machine, you'd end up with the Elise. Sort of.

Love all the flowers. Hopefully both were yours or on public property and you weren't leaping behind someone's flowers after parking in front of their home to take photos of your cars. ;)

Popping back in to look at the pictures again. I really like the wheels. The orange accents inside and out of the car are subtle.

How is the orange on the wheel, is it painted? Can you get any close-ups of the wheel where the orange and black meet? And is the black a matte black?

Just wondering on how the wheels are cleaned and maintained. For that matter, the front/rear black accents, how are those cleaned/maintained? With all the indentations/holes, wouldn't want some wax that dries white. LOL.

I really wish they would have offered the black housing lights on the abarth I think it really cleans up the look. Do you have any more pics of the interior? I'm with RedRed on the color combo it looks good.

The wheels are black alloy, the orange accents are actually black and orange plastic inserts that attach to the wheels with screws from the back side. It appears that the color is molded in, but I could be wrong. The smoked lights make a huge difference in appearance.

First attempt at posting images, hope this works. This is my ride, side decal removed, and riding on stock abarth springs front & rear, which drops the ride height significantly. Wheel image is for Andree...

Sweet. That's what I'm after except for the sunroof.

Here ya' go- I took it with a flash, so the color's a little off. It looks like the orange and glossy black centers are inserts into the rest of the less-than-glossy wheel faces.

By the way, i totally agree that my old Elise looks like my new Fiat after being sent through a ringer :cupcake: That's my friend's flower garden in the pic, not a random person's :p

I was watching the latest Downton Abbey episode (don't ask) and there was a Fiat displayed very prominently! It's supposedly taking place during the 1920's...

Dig the cursive Fiat on the front. Would love to have an all-black Lounge model, and modify that logo piece to be on the back hatch, as the Gucci models have "Gucci". No black-out headlights, got to be the chrome style.

Any issues with the spring swap? I want to do the same.

I finally got to take my car to the beach and took some pics! The sun was not at an ideal angle, but they turned out alright...

I applied filters to most of them to make them more interesting (I figured there are a bunch of regular photos of Grigio eSports out there already).

I added a better version of the vertical/rear photo (I edited out the reflection on the bumper)... For some reason I can't delete the picture from the previous post- it seems to have attached itself separately from the original group.

Looks like a beautiful day! I especially like the middle one of the second post, with the rays behind and in front of the car, with the car directly facing the camera.

Yeah, I like the super-contrasty front view one too! The sort of gold tone in some of the pictures is the 'Transfer' filter in the iPhone Photos app.

Here's another sort of artsy one- I noticed that when I parked next to my mom's Audi, that my arancia side-mirror and her aquamarine side-mirror looked pretty together :adoration:
