For the side vinyl jus nip to your local sign man, he should be able to make you one for about 30 quid.

Have a look on the novitec website for exhausts, they hve a couple of systems with tips that look like the Abarth ones.

Re: Converting a Sporting to a Abarth.. pic with questions

I like some of the ideas but not sure about all of the badges.

As far as im aware the front Abarth badge will not fit any other model as it is much larger and cuts into the bumper above.

The tailpipe can be replicated quite easily if you go onto ebay and search grande punto and search all countries. They have a cheap imiatation twin pipe but im not sure how it fits.

The Abarth decal that runs down the side is available from Fiat if you look on ePER but im not sure about the colours.

A question for you now, where did you get your rear lights from?

Rich

Re: Converting a Sporting to a Abarth.. pic with questions

I have got Front and Rear lights from Autoworld Chesterfield. (you may know they as partsworld-uk off ebay) they are a fiat dealership parts department

A mate of a mate works there and ordered me the rear lights, the front lights are ones that got ordered by acciendent apparently and are sat round. not sure if I want them to as they are LHD.

The side Abarth badges are nice to look at but I cant understand why they have decided to put them near the handle! they look stupid!

Correct the front badge is bigger would prob need a whole new grille.

Thanks for your help Rich.

Nope, the grill on the Abarth is smaller which is what makes the badge look bigger. I have both front and rear genuine Abarth badges fitted. Plus the sides

Nice ideas so far mate.

I realised this shortly after what i said, lol.

On a seperate note i thought i would mention in case you dont know that you can get the Abarth headlights for RHD cars, i looked on ePER, got the part numbers and called my nearest Abarth dealer and they quoted. Not cheap however.
