    Same here - only problems I've had is with the wheel caps.

    Carmen is on her second set and these have had it - the rest of the badges are good though :thumb:

    I was told a flat out 'no' to replacing my badges in 3rd year warranty, I will however be making some phone calls to Abarth this week..., I refuse to to fix something like that.

    I've had my front, side and rear badges replaced due to 'bubbling'  (wish I hadn't bothered having the rear badge changed though as the garage damaged the paintwork around the badge then denied it was them)

    My wheel centres are original and still ok  ???


    Don't think badges or any trim items are covered under 3rd year warranty though   :thumbd:

    Think badges come under trim pieces which aren't covered under the 3rd year.

    Abarth UK might do them as a good will gesture if you ask nicely :thumb:

    I've just had both side and front badges replaced under warranty but I did take it to the dealer before its 2 years was up.  Hope you get yours sorted.
