The wheels are metallic graphite (I think that what they described them). So, yeah, they are grey. They look much better on a silver car than normal silver alloys.[8D]

you were very lucky to have chrome shadow alloy wheels, when i took delivery of my stilo abarth on 1st september 03 chrome shadow alloys were no longer available on 17"five spoke which i have on mine i dont even think they do chrome shadow full stop hope your abarth is going well as im over the moon with mine no problems as of yet touch wood considering all the bad reports about this car and fiat in general are getting on with the selespeed gearbox ok if your new to the system it will take a little will to adapt but once you get used to it its brilliant cant see what people and press who drive it mone about i think there just stuck in there old ways and dont want to move with the times keep me informed on how your getting on love to hear many thanks

Thanks for the reply!

The dark alloys do look the part and I am well happy with the car. I've suffered from some of the niggly problems people have reported but they've all been sorted under warranty so no big deal.

Love the car though. The Selespeed you get used to real quickly (after bunny hopping down the road the first time I drive it!) and I really enjoy flicking up and down through a couple of gears at a time. Also lurrrve the sound of the engine above about 3500-4000RPM. Proper Italian engine noise!

Glad your car is going OK too - What colour is yours? Have you got any options other than the 17" wheels?

Looks really good, just shame about the amount of plastic under that engine bay!
Oh for an Alfa 3.2litre v6 style bit of chroming!

Si.

You're not wrong. A real disappointment. Doesn't affect how it sounds or how it goes though! ;)

As I said above, I've just got a new job with a company car (Vectra unfortunately) and cannot afford to keep two cars. Therefore, my Stilo Abarth is now for sale.

It's 52-reg, 3 door in silver with 14000 miles and all the usual Abarth toys. It's had a service at 12000 and new front tyres at 13000.

Full history, 2 years warranty, AA cover, etc, etc

Looking for offers near 10K

Email, PM or Phone 07966 492721 for more info

Can't blame your husband on either the Stilo or the Jag fronts. Before I had the Stilo I had a Jag Sovereign. Amazing car. Only got rid of it because of the stupid amount of petrol it got through :(
