I just received these emblems from an eBay seller. Paid $16.44 for them with the tax.

They are both the same side instead of a L/R set, but I knew that when I ordered them.

Pros: They are visually accurate to the Abarth logo. Colors are good. Curving Abarth script looks right. The borders are chrome as they should be.

Con: THEY ARE TINY! Not at all what I was expecting.
I may be able to use one of them on the base of the expensive 1/18 scale Abarth 124 model I purchased at Christmas. That’s about it.

Let's try one with the model

I REALLY LIKE THE EMBLEM HERE. YES, I'M OK WITH IT. I have one left over if anyone is interested. PM me.

Sadly, as you’ve found, there are a lot of cheap garbage knockoffs of the genuine Mopar side badges out there. The real ones are not cheap…they are close to $100 US for a pair. But they are curved to fit the fenders and will look good long-term. It’s the old story, “You Get What You Pay For”, and “Buyer Beware”.

I'm not a fan of those side badges. I'm glad my 2018 Abarth didn't come with them. To each their own, but for me I like a "clean" look. If I could, I'd get rid of the two HUGE emblems (on the front and on the truck).

The PO of my car put on some crappy reproduction fender badges. The colors have already faded from the minimal sun that it sees. It mostly sits in the garage, so that definitely shows the quality, or lack thereof. I am going to get them removed when I take it in to get some vinyl work done in the next month or so.
