Got my cover today, it's made in China, but looks good. It's made of Polyester interior is like micro fibre so not abrasive. It was given as part of the deal $400. can tax included, Personally I would not spend such amount. It fits like a glove, only thing I had to bend the antenna.

Its a Mopar 82215015

Also guys what do you think of the Abarth badge on the car near the fender. appreciate your input.tia (Sorry pic is up side down)

Actually the dealer gave it to me, go to Aliexpress.com or ebay. they're about 3" Flexible. But I ordered 2 metal ones 2.5" but since the above line is curved, The flexible one would be better. Once I get them I'll see if I could bend it.

I should be getting them after Xmas from China.

Frank Martin, I looked up Mopar part #82215015. They list it as an oem full car cover at $199 but no photos. Just wanted to verify that that part #82215015 has the Abarth logo and "124 Spider" on the side as in your photos. Any verification would be appreciated.

That mopar part no is correct and I have noticed also no picture on the web. The FIAT SPIDER 124 MOPAR part no is 82215016. And the Cover according to the picture of the pamphlet is GREY, with FIAT LOGO, but no 124 SPIDER.
Actually the cover comes in a hand bag. You can also check the part no on the box.

Frankmar. This is mine during installation, modeled off the EU Abarth and placed in pretty much the same location, on both sides of the car. 500 Madness has these but they are also on eBay. The former showed me the Chinese knock-offs and they are not nearly as nice. I want to say these cost $45 each but I don't remember. These are the official Abarth badges from Italy.

I just purchased my Abarth 124 so sorry for digging up this old thread.
Do you think this car cover would be ok in a parking garage? The car will not be near the open sides so I wont get any blowing rain from outside. Ill be parking my car a week at a time so Id like something to protect it while Im away.

I have the same cover as Frank, and I've now used it over two winters in my unheated garage. I would not use it in any location where it would be exposed to rain, snow, or moisture of any kind (snow might be okay so long as it got brushed off before it had a chance to melt). I fear the water would just soak through like dropping a towel in a sink.

In Frank's first post in this thread, you'll notice he says he needs to bend the antenna a bit when he puts it on. In my case, I purchased the "stubby" antenna replacement, and the radio antenna on this car just screws off by hand. So what I do each winter is unscrew the stubby, and place it in my centre storage cubby before I put the cover on. The cover comes in a decent zippered carry/storage bag, and the soft velour type lining of it does a really nice job of protecting the paint. That said, I would ensure the vehicle was clean before putting it on. I wouldn't want to risk scratching the paint by accidental abrasion caused by dirt on the car being rubbed while the cover is being put on or taken off. There are cheaper covers out there, but these ones fit like a glove and are pretty decent quality.

Question for those with the black Abarth cover...does the interior material shed on the soft top canvas?
Thanks...
