Is that some type of protectant, wax etc. How much is it to apply ?I had my Rosso Red Abarth protected with Cquartz Professional. My detailer was amazed at how many scratches and swirls it had on delivery, likely from the morons at the port/and or the dealers wash crew. I think it is a good investment for a fabulous look on a perfect car.
Check the internet for a dealer near you, or look at mine @ Michalskidetailing.com
That's a good price. I got 450$ for the front bumper, side skirts, lower rear bumper and lower doors edge. No invoice, no taxes. I'm happy to have done it because I already get some light scratches on my front bumper. I suppose this is someone that bump it at my workplace parking lot...Wolft, I went to see the guy at vitroplus, initially he quoted me $325. then when we took the measurement of the front bumper, the guy wanted $450. he said too much material and but the guy at Vitroplus told lot of wasted material, which you could use elsewhere. At the end I told the guy, $450, I could repaint the bumber with that amount. The guy at vitroplus agreed.
Same. Got my manual Abarth last Wednesday - and of course we had, starting Wednesday afternoon, four straight days of almost wall to wall rain. I finally got to drive around with the top down Sunday afternoon and only for a few minutes although I drove into work yesterday and this morning with open air. Lovely!Drive it?
Hey, are you doing this yourself, or hiring it out? If you are up to it, a "how to" of the removal process would be great, with photos. Especially the part of dealing with the floor carpet...- Scheduled to remove the styrofoam lump in passenger side to free up leg room.
Love the idea of the portable hard drive for music. I hadn't thought of that before. I suppose you see all of the song titles and options to skip. Thanks for the idea.Here is what I've installed, in no particular order (just how I remember them):
Bought from EuroCompulsion-
V1 air intake tube (greater air volume, and cooler air, into the turbo)
aFe dry air filter (at least as good, or better filtration than the stock filter, and flows more air)
*With these first two, I guess I've allowed the engine to produce a few more HP, and a few more torques (as the nimrods on Grand Tour and Top Gear say)
GFB DV+ diverter valve (stocker is known to be a poorly built part)
Oil catch can (to keep crankcase oil vapors from getting into the turbo and maybe even the air filter)
Cravenspeed Stubby radio antenna (to shorten the radio antenna from 16-18" down to about 4-5".
PTP turbo blanket (for me, to do nothing more than protect the surrounding parts from the heat of the turbo)
Homemade wood gearshift knob for my manual trans. gear shift lever (for aesthetics, and to make the car different from every other car in the world)
Loaded up a USB jack music storage device with a bunch of tunes from my old CD library (personal enjoyment while driving)
For long term engine protection, in my own opinion, I also changed the engine oil and filter early on (by 1000 miles) to flush out any break-in junk or manufacturing debris that could still be in there somewhere.
I think that's been about it for me. Get out there and have a good time!
Definitely not - having it done at the same time as the stereo. I don't want to screw around with it and would rather spend the time with my family or out riding my Moto Guzzi Stelvio (I see your profile pic )Hey, are you doing this yourself, or hiring it out?

Ameridan has an article on his blog about removing the wedge and it has some pics. In my case I actually had the sub and I had a friend of mine do it - he runs a shop that does car audio - and he said it was very easy to get the carpet to sit down in the space. He used the open bolt hole (from the wedge cover) and bolted down the carpet so it wouldn't rise up and one can't even see it. It looks terrific and my wife is amazed at the extra space. And, yes, I can finally ride as a passenger so I have to look for other excuses to make sure I'm driving.Hey, are you doing this yourself, or hiring it out?
