    Is my car lowered?

    Just noticed it after looking at some pics from the previous seller. And isn't there supposed to be an Abarth emblem on the quarter panel? And what's the consensus about the Abarth lower side decals?

    The Abarth badge on the quarter panel is on the passenger side, which is not shown in these three pictures. Also, yes, the car is lowered.

    Yes, yes, and appearance is entirely preference.

    Anything but grey will pop nicely on a black car. Sounds like you are trying to flip this car and want to predict what the next owner will like? I see red on black most often so if you want your car to stand out maybe go white or yellow.

    Nearly all Abarth's I've seen have both sides. (my avatar is my driver's side quarter panel shield)

    Looks lowered to me. Also looks like they did remove the side badges. I removed mine. Looks cleaner without.

    OK not one on the other side either. Will remedy that. And do like the red Abarth decals on a black car. Can't believe they're only $25 a set. A single emblem is more.

    If you get under the back of the car you can look at the springs and see if any other manufacturers logo is on them.It sure looks like maybe the ending height of an Eibach Pro Kit.
