They don't, since like you said they're unavoidable with current manufacturing practices, the paint thing however can be avoided. I don't want to detract too much from the owners thread, I just wish it was as noticeable on silver.Hood and decklid seams don't annoy you, Sonny?
"Cutlines" are unavoidable. I tolerate them so long as they aren't too large (admittedly subjective) and are even/consistent.
Are you saying the cut lines are more noticeable, or the panels appear to be a different shade of colour because it is painted on different materials?It is more noticeable on silver 124's that the sideskirts/bumpers/trim are painted separately from the body; which is annoying me, the car looks lovely in silver.
This is making me want a black car, and I hate taking care of black cars, they're about as needy as my Jeep...
Always love seeing photos of your car. The Grigio Argento Aluminum color gives this car a completely different (sleeker) vibe. Less playful than the white/red, but accentuates the curves nicely.I'm taking pics of my car all the time, so I could fill the thread with them. I'll keep it simple with some of my favorites.
Delilah, if you see me, wave! I'm sure I have the only other silver one locally for a while, and definitely the only silver Abarth for a while.
I'm not in town as much since I live far out east, but I'm on and near the interstate all the time.Orion, looks fabulous. I haven't seen any 124 Spiders around town but will wave if I see you. (Delilah is a teddy bear and will wave if I let her ride in the car - LOL) My name is really Nancy. I am loving my Lusso and plan to take it to Atlanta next weekend for a good drive. It has been on the back roads to Arcadia and loves the curves.
I do know of a black Classica and a red one in Venice.
Thank you! I ended up getting the exact car I wanted, even though its not what I ordered. I ordered red, but after seeing it at the Tampa auto show and here and there, it's just not a good red for the car. The silver looks very grown up and sophisticated, and I just love the LED headlights so much.Always love seeing photos of your car.

That's my fear, but admittedly I haven't seen it in the flesh. In some photos, it looks very bright. In others, it looks too... dark.I ordered red, but after seeing it at the Tampa auto show and here and there, it's just not a good red for the car.
