    What about going for a black grill. It deserve a black grill. Logo will be more prominent.

    i'm a DIY fan as well..
    Its quite easy to remove the grill..open the bonnet.. u will notice 4 screws..a 4mm ellan key is required.
    once the screws are removed, pull the bumper. Size 8 spanner is required to unscrew the emblem which is screwed onto a clamp on the bumper. once thats done.. pull the grill from outside, start from the side..
    for the lower grill ..no screws, just clip on.. use a small wire.. put them through the grill and pull towards you, but slightly in a downward angle..again start from the side..

    I feel you hav gone a bit overboard in the mods.... the stripes look too thick, cant commet more as i havent seen it in person., then you could have taken it to the front bumper till the fog lamp area. The sticker above the side blinkers looks very odd , looking at the full car. The sticker at the C pillar can be slightly repositioned at an angle . Lastly, i m not a fan of those big abarth in the front n rear glass.. purely in my personal opinion.
    Next thing you should do is to get a subtle thin stripe running from front to back at an offset from centre like in one of the punto above. and add a spoiler. Badly needs a set of alloys man !!! That is even far more complex process than choosing a car...getting the right alloy design. Do it wisely.

    Thanks for the tip man... i tried the removal of the upper grille, successfully did it and waiting to paint it black tomorrow !!

    not really because it only occupies about 10% of the doors and this is the size that ABARTH stickers come in.( I looked at some ABARTH stickers to get the measurements and then told the guy to cut accordingly).

    This was the initial idea but there are some scratches on the bumper that will make the sticker bulge out and have creases so i refrained from getting it done.

    Again as is in the actual Abarth .(Here its a sticker but originally its a logo that's all)

    I wanted to make Abarth extremely evident and obvious and I like windshield decals so got it done.

    You are one amongst 100 people (at least) who has recommended going in for alloys.
    And for all such questions my answer is this.
    "Dude you dont know how desperately I'm searching for 98PCD alloys(orange spokes)" :)
