I quite like the solid colour look of the car, so rather than applying the matt black of the Heritage Pack I've been toying with the idea of an Abarth stripe instead. Here are some quick mock-ups.

Talking about stripes, take a look at these pictures taken at the Orange County CA Auto Show this last Friday (10/7/16). But note the front end treatment as being so different than the picture you show. These pictures are of the Lusso model. Was able to take a 20 min. test drive in a Lusso. Impressed with the steering and acceleration. Fine car.

The front end looks different because the OP's picture shows an Abarth version whereas the Orange County show features a Fiat version.

MotoPete, i looked at a 500Abarth with the stripe, red with white stripe, saw at a local used car dealer and grabbed the VIN. Took a quick measurement and the stripe is about 65" long and the side of a 124 is about the same between wheel wells. Had my local dealer pull up the stripe info to see what it costs. result, FCA is looney tunes. the stripe comes in 6 pieces, not so surprised by that, hover the cost for both sides like $600.00, that's crazy. take a few measurements to be sure none of the lines get cut at a door seam and i am sure a local sign/ auto graphics shop could mock one up for way way way less.

There are a number of one piece 3M vinyl products on eBay that I'll look at instead. They are about 70" long, but could be trimmed to size.

So we decided on a stripe that complements the Launch Edition accents.

It's difficult to photograph, but looks sweet in the metal. We really like the subtle tie in with the 500's we got the idea from.
