Well not much of a modification but I wanted to add a little more chrome to Laser.

Looks good!
How does it go on? Self-adhesive or...?

I want to get the bumper strips but I am NOT neat with anything requiring epoxy.

Self adhesive. The biggest problem was I didn't have a metric ruler to measure the position. Just placed it down by eye....very pleased with this chrome accent. Fiat dealer in Cherry Hill area offers 10% off and will answer email questions very quickly. The discount and the no tax makes up for the shipping charges.

It's a great accent. I went with it on mine as well - I didn't want a lot of chrome on the sport, just a touch of retro fabulousness.

Thought it might be a bit much or too retro, but glad I did.

It does look quite nice. Again, though, I'm cool with adding the chrome tailpipe because it doesn't require measurement. :) I can see me putting that on crooked.

That's a great accent for 500s. Mine is on order. I can't wait to put it on my Verde Chiaro!

That's why I made the dealer do it. There was this little voice (the boyfriend, probably) telling me I'd measure after three manhattans and apply while drinking the fourth.

I'm going to con Newcastle into doing it should I take the plunge. Since he did such a good job on his. I can supply the manhattans.

Not a problem.
