Here are some photos of my lovely "Pearl". The photo with 2 cars side by side is of my old car that I traded in sitting beside my new car. These photos don't really do that Bianco Perla Tri-White paintjob justice. As you can see from the photos, I've already managed to get her dirty...no great feat in Florida during the rainy season when you live on a dirt road!

Great to see a 124 in the "wild". You might very well hold the honor of having the first dirty Spider posted on the forum. Congrats on your new ride.

Nice! The Bianco Perla looks very nice. If I were to go with the white, I think I'd spring the extra bucks for the Perla. The glistening in the light really looks nice.

What do you guys think of the red bits (Mirrors and Lip) on the Bianco perla colored car?

should look as nice as on the white I'd say...
Someone suggested that it may not look as good on the metallic white as the red accents have non-metallic finishes. I've not seen the Abarth in this color, so tough to guage.

Got mine on 30 Dec, had to drive almost 5 hours one way to get it. Was the only Abarth I could find in VA, NC, MD, DC, and DE that was equipped the way I wanted (MT, Brembos, Comfort & Convenience / Nav & Sound / Visibility packages, Alcantara Recaros). It's fully optioned, except for the Heritage Stripes. I'm going to get some green and red stripes put on the car, running from the nose to the vertical edge of the trunk lid, so that worked out fine. Have a bunch of parts on the way: cross-drilled rotors, s/s brake lines, mufflers + 3" quad tips (custom 2.25" axle-back exhaust), GFB DV+, new wheels (17x7.5, +40 offset, 225/45 tires), Abarth center cap emblems, etc. Will post new pics once all these parts are on.

I am looking for a similar Config... MT, Comviance, Recaro, Visabiliy... I don't need the Haritiage Stripe as I plan to do something similar to what you are. Don't need the Brembo's as evently I'll do the Wildwoods. The Nav, I couldn't care less.

Car I have found is ideal except it has Nav and does not have Visability. How do u think the red bits would look on the Perla Car?

I have them on mine, except for the tow cover. (I don't like the way the tow cover looks)

Reallly Like the way your car looks... So with Exterior Color Settled, just have to Decide between the Red Seats or the Recaros. Leaning towards the Recaro's as I will be adding other red accents inside the Car (Red Vents, Red Shift Knob, Red Cocca Mats).

I wanted to get as many factory options on the car as I could, figured that could help towards the car keeping its value, relative to one that didn't have all the options. I didn't care about the Nav either, but wanted the Sound package with the 9 Bose speakers and sub-woofer that came with the Nav/Sound option (you have to get them together). I also wanted the Visibility package for the LED lighting, and self-leveling and self-adjusting headlights. Definitely wanted the Brembo brake package too. As you've already found out, getting one equipped the way you want is something of a challenge, unless you go to a dealer and order one.

I think the red mirror caps and front spoiler trim would look good, like it does on "steve6225" car. I don't plan on getting those bits for my car though, I think the green and red stripes will give me the look I want, along with some kind of emblem by the side marker lights (Abarth badge, Italian flag, Abarth scorpion, or?).
