Hi everyone, I thought I'd start this to journal my journey with the Abarth 124.

Picked her up on Wednesday this week, and the first two days of ownership has been nothing but awesome.

She's white, has red mirrors and front lip (but decided against the red pimple), heritage wrap, and the Record Monza exhaust.

Windows got tinted first day in, and my custom number plate arrived the day after I picked up the car!

Here's a little snippet, sorry for the messy garage!

Thank you guys ?

I've covered almost 700kms in 9 days of ownership, and have no complaints!

The number of compliments I get is amazing - not many on the road, and I'm sure the heritage wrap adds that extra touch of exoticness.

In any case, I've wrapped the door sills with CF wrap and installed the dashcam so far!

Just out of curiosity, why did you add the "V" in front of ONE 24 ??
I wish it was optional, unfortunately all of our "european plates" have to have a "V" at the front, which stands for Victoria (the state we are in). It's annoying, because on all official documents, it's VONE24

I'm still tossing around the idea of getting Japanese style plates for the RF. Cant decide if it's worth it.

Hi Rocklogic, thanks for sharing. Looks great! I'm also in Melbourne, currently poking around the dealers. Maybe I'll see you out on the road some day.

Does it have those 'explosive bolts' which lift the rear of the hood on a frontal impact?!

White Abarth Spiders are know to be the fastest. After all, the color is the lightest.
