Hey Folks!

I have this 2015 Turbo in White and it's 100% a sleeper. No graphics or badging from the factory other than the FIAT badges on the front and back.

Abarth has the nice badges on the side. I want to do "something" modest to highlight the fact that it's a "TURBO" 500 but want to be minimalist and tasteful.

SO -- I need advice from my Abarth friends.

I have been looking at adhesives on Fleabay and I found this guy's stuff. He's been highly recommended here and at other places.

Have a look at his Stuff here --> PRO MOTOR STRIPES on EBAY (http://stores.ebay.com/ProMotorStripes/FIAT-/_i.html?_fsub=4991673012)


One option from the link above is something like this but with "500 TURBO" where it says custom... ???

OR: Another option is just to go with a modest badge on the hatch, say on the lower left of the license plate:

1.4T Turbo Engine Rear Trunk Emblem (http://www.ebay.com/itm/331615761278)

All thoughts welcome. Appreciate the feedback.

Took my Abarth stripes off a week after purchased (used).
Thought it gave an already toy car more toy.
I like the emblem on the rear hatch though!

Thanks guys for the feedback. Decided against stripes and decided just to go with a badge or two.

I wanted to use a US seller so I paid a little extra. I bought one of these to go between the license plate and one of the tail lights:

This should look great on the White 500T:

And he was having a 25% sale if you bought 2 so I had to get one of these:

Total was $20.98 with a US supplier. Not positive I'll post the Italian Flag but I might put it on the opposite side of the Turbo between the License Plate and the other Rear Tail...

oh but the turbo emblem looks FANTASTIC just below the Fiat emblem (above plate).

You think? I saw a picture of it off to the side and I was sold. I'll have to play with positions and get your opinion when it arrives. Seller said he shipped already...

I was going to suggest the turbo emblem, guy local took one from a Porsche and put it on his Veloster, looks good. Sort of looks like the one you have above.
