I'm a newbie and i'm just wondering...
« on: September 02, 2014, 11:02:01 am »
Hello everyone! I'm based in Gloucestershire and in a few weeks time I will be collecting my A500C in Cordola Red with Black Leather and 17" upgrade wheels I am soooooo excited to be getting her just waiting on a cherish transfer to go through. Anyways back to my question: I went and had a sneaky peak at my car as its now arrived at the dealership it looks in my mind stunning but I would like the centre caps on the alloys to have the red detailing that you would normally get if you paid for the red brake callipers, do you know if these can be changed to red, have your changed yours and how much do you think it would cost? Thanks oh yes are there any other Abarth owners in Gloucestershire haven't seen any recent posts from my area?!

    Hello welcome along :)

    You could just ask your dealer, they might be nice enough and swap them over for you, I wanted red mirrors on mine, I asked and they changed them over for me. Normally the centre caps are just a straight forward swap for a set on the same wheel design.

    I live in Coopers Edge, Gloucester. There's a white here too. I've only ever seen maybe 2 in the area. Where about are you?

    Hi Jontell

    I live in Tewkesbury but work in Gloucester so you may see me! Since I took the plunge and ordered mine I have been on the look out and haven't spotted any, I will give you a nice big wave if I see you!!

    Hi scottycross they have a chrome band around the abarth centre cap, I have the 17" 10 spoke wheels.

    Thank you to everyone's suggestions, I have emailed my dealer but the salesperson hasn't replied as yet and I've had a look on ebay so it does look possible which is great!

    Ah I see! If my calipers weren't red if have swapped as mine are red. Good luck finding some! Could you not get them sprayed?
