Traded in my car, put down a deposit and now the wait begins, 3 months. I've been wanting a small car for over a year, just couldn't decide on one. It definitely worked out because the Abarth is going to be a lot of fun.

The only question is do I change the order and add the red mirrors & body stripes. :disturbed:

Yes, how many Abarth's are you ever going to own in your life....might as well go all the way.

The lease on our car is 180 days out... but we already stopped by the dealer to see when we can do the deal. Can't wait.

Yeah, I'm just on the fence about the red mirror caps, I'm thinking about just installing the lower body strip myself. I need to look into the availability of that particular sticker..

:single_eye: -- In my case, as soon as the new one arrives, the number will jump to 4. --:eagerness: -- From there, who knows? The stripe was the first thing on my wish list !

I just saw the Abarth at the Cincinnati Auto Expo. White with red mirror covers and side stripe, bella. Went straight to my Dealer and ordered one!

Wow, thank you and only 22 euro shipped. Is there any difference when you order the stripe from the factory? Like a clearcoat over the sticker?

Can you get colored mirror caps online? (as you can with the side sticker)

I looked into mirror caps and the short answer is "not easily".

You can get them in various colors for the Punto Evo, though, and the euro spec covers are interchangeable between the two models. I don't know if that's true for the US spec 500.

Mine is now indicating a ship date of March 12th...we'll see how accurate that is, but it seems possible that in the first or second week of April, the car will be at the studio!
