It was a bodyshop who repaired the car and replaced the side stripe with one that didnt match the stripe on passenger door, it was my dealer who resolved the problem.

I havent got round to contacting Abarth UK yet.

    The dealer principal at Autoworld is Paul Burtoft. Ben sold me my car for the record he's only a Fiat salesman. Jonathan the Abarth specialist never seems to be there.

    Thanks ABagp

    I have logged a complaint with Abarth uk this morning, dont think they liked the sound
    of what i was telling them either.
    I am waiting for an investigator to ring me back, will let them deal with it for now
    Don't want them doing it to anybody else.
    Then i am reporting them to trading standards.


    Good for you bud. These guys are lying, cheating scum and should be stripped of their franchise and fined by trading standards. Or maybe I've just got the wrong attitude. ???

    How can you defend in indefensible? :thumbd:

    Yes, you do have the wrong attitude. You should attend an anger management course immediately. Alternatively Mistress Mimi (just off Wardour Street) will chastise you for a very reasonable fee. You know you're worth it.

    You're not having much luck are you?

    Friends (ahem) report her services are usually top notch.

    Did you ask for the full service? You have to pay top whack for full whack.

    Not only can you go to her for stripes but you can also get red weals.

    A quick update.
    Got a call from autoworld this morning to tell me the stripes were on order,
    they will be here early next week.
    They have asked the transfer company to come to our house to change them, result :thumb
    I think the dealership have had a roasting from Abarth uk, as this is a complete turnaround
    to two days ago, they were also very nice on the phone.

    Lets hope they go on straight this time :whistle:

    I am going to put the ones they take off in the classifieds if anybody wants wrong colour
    wrong font, totally wrong side stripes, they will look nice honest. ;D

    Good news.

    Hopefully they won't try this with anyone else in the future.

    You say the transfer company are going to come to yours.  I was under the impression that the dealer fitted these.  Do I have the wrong end of the sticker?  :crazy:

    Very good Ninjauk
    You have the wrong end of the sticker.
    I always like to sticker to my principals and get my way in the end.
    Autoworld use a local signwrighter /transfer company to put them on, i think they need to go to specsavers.
