    would look nice with gulf stripes, but even without them it is really nice

    The Gulf stripe pictured doesn't quite work for me.

    That's my car.
    and wasn't built to look like a gulf replica.i just like the colours.
    why want a car in replica livery it was never campaigned in....!

    Leggenda blue is rare.for the Abarth meetings we organise I've not seen another.

    Fair play - and I take your point about not mimicking an endurance car with the colour scheme you have chosen.

    If somebody was going to do a Gulf car it would probably need to  involve in your face bonnet graphics and a lot more orange.

    Thanks for the comments guys!

    The orange does look good, although I think the girlfriend prefers hers with the white stripes.

    The white wheels look great though, can't wait to get the white esseesse wheels on it now.

    Exhaust was bought 2nd hand although it was barely used. Think it was around £350 mark.

    Never seen it brand new, not sure you can get it anymore.

    White wheels are Blessing (as they look awesome with the White stripes) and a Curse (as they are a pain in the donkeys behind to keep clean or mine are at least PMSL)

    I did look at esseesse wheels but after speaking to my friend over in Italy.realised they are to heavy and fragile for me...oh and to expensive.lots of them have had several fail.
    Cracking on track days and in everyday road use.they all use the magneti marelli wheels or oz.
    But I couldn't get the mm wheels in white.

    Hopefully these will be fine. Doubt it will ever see a track. Although it does get driven hard on the road when I'm behind the wheel haha!

    Should be easy enough to keep clean. They'll be sealed with Dlux or platinum wheels before they are fitted so any dirt should just literally blast off. Fantastic products.
