If you want the look, you can do it with a wrap material. There is a CF wrap that car wrap services have.

I like the looks and lightweight properties of the Carbon Fiber... and this might be a result of getting older??, but I think I am over CF for cosmetic reasons alone. I am more now into replacing parts to improve functional aspects of the car.

The first one we are getting, the Rosso is for my daughter. We are keeping that one stock. The second one we are getting will be in about a year or two. That one I want it in Grigio, no side stripes (naked!). And I would like to add the following mods:

Wheels - I liked the ones in the Venon... I also like the Ciao Vernazza and the OZ Ultraleggera...

Brembo Brake Kit -the folks at 500madness have these... so those are the ones I will get

Better flowing exhaust system - pretty sure there will be many options available to select from.

Intake - I like what they did with the Venon...

ECM upgrade to 200hp

and those seats!! But I am afraid those will demand some high $$$

Really glad that you guys carry all this stuff... It will be very difficult for me to resist modifying the car... already have a spreadsheet with the description and pricing (for what it has pricing available)...

I was looking around for exhaust.. The one in the video and photos of the Venom options is a development unit...

Anyone has read about the Record Monza exhaust? Seems to have a valve for a bypass above 3k rpms...

Record Monza Exhaust was introduced on the Tributo Ferrari (http://www.fiat500usa.com/2009/09/abarth-695-tributo-ferrari.html)

Record Monza Exhausts are well known for rusting quickly, but other than that people in Europe like them. They do sound great.

I don't get it...why not use stainless steel? They don't look like they are cheap, you would think they would use ss to avoid the rust!

Thank you for sharing that.

So what company will have/has lowering springs for the Abarth right now? Or will have them shortly before delivery? I think stock ride height has waaay too much fender/wheel gap.

I see most parts are available now in CF. Exept the hood? That will be my first upgrade for sure, followed by the intake (making the beautiful deep rumble even deeper? how could you go wrong!). So when are you thinking the hood will be in stock?

is this going to be a Mopar option?
