Abarth mods.....

OK, have lived with the 'barth for a few months now and it's time to start thinking about changing a few things:

Mod 1: The spoiler. It's never really struck me nothing more than OK, so I'm contemplating changing it for a OEM style one preferably with brake light. Will start search for one next this week unless anyone here can point me in the right direction. Anyone who'd like the currently fitted spoiler PM me with reasonable offers.

Mod 2: Koa painted the callipers blue, a big improvement on the standard colour bot not really noticeable enough. So once it eventually stops raining going to change the colour to a nice 'look at me' red.

Mod 3: This is a petty one but frustrates me the most. The 5 disk CDC is OK, but a little limited, would love to install an ipod kit but due to the connect+ this isn't going to be possible unless I choose the Parrott BT option - (http://www.fiatforum.com/stilo-techn...3-success.html) - My only reservation with this is the lack of a mute when receiving phone calls and satnav instructions, yup I really am this pedantic!

Mod 4: Not really for me, more for the kids. Install 2x 7" LCD screens into the headrests to keep them occupied on the odd long journey. Before I think about this any further I'd like to see if anyone else has attempted this and how good it looks - don't fancy cocking it up and them searching for replacement headrests!


Should keep me occupied for a while, will obviously post pics when things have progressed a little.

Re: Abarth mods.....

i actually really like the car as is imho. but you have to adapt things to your own taste.

re the spoiler: i dont think it will suite. and the stilo already has a high level brake light? why you after another one. the indicators would be ott at the back but if nicely placed in the wing mirrors?

Re: Abarth mods.....

No high level brake light on mine, thats why I was looking for one.

After looking at that spoiler again you're right, it's pants.

Blinds = Done!

Re: Abarth mods.....

So do you want to sell your spoiler when you get the new one. I think that i asked you before but i absolutely love it. I could send you my OEM one if you wanted could even have it painted for you if you wanna do a straight swap, or how much do you want for it.
Sorry all mods if this reply breaches rules but i really want that spoiler.

Bodykits dont make you love the car..........i did all that and then sold it like 3 months later

Dogspods, i used the picture i did due to the one you put up having the older smaller inferior wheels on it

Re: Abarth mods.....

One thing to point out with the ms design spoiler is it does have a big split down the middle that you only notice at certain angles.......i didnt realise it did when i bought it so was a suprise to say the least
