Question Abarth Bumpers on 500 Sport?

Hi guys,

I have a 2013 Fiat 500 sport from Canada and over here where i live in UK, got in an accident with my abarth sadly the cost of fixing it is a lot so i sold it but i took the front, back bumpers and side skirts which barely got damaged. a bit of right side skirt is damaged which i can fix and repaint.


just wondering can I change my 500 sport bumpers and put the abarth on?
im guessing they are the same size for fitting right?
uk abarth size is the same as Canada's abarth size?
i really want to take them with me. man i really loved my abarth until the stupid bus driver T-boned me.

anyone tried this?

any suggestions?

as for exhaust im planning to do straight pipes so no need to get an exhaust system



thanks
r

The only thing is you'll (probably) want the same skirts the whole way around. When I asked about this, I could swap bumpers for the Sport, but they may sit at a different height to the standard sills, so look a bit off. If that makes sense!

yes. i have the side skirts but one of them is damaged and needs to be repainted.
i think skirts would fit as well. if not i just have to use an extension skirts to make it look like the abarth
or maybe work with foam to make it longer or wider perhaps

I'm pretty sure the abarth parts all fit as the shell is the same

Judging by the number of Fiat 500's with the full, on the outside anyway, Abarth lookalike treatment I've seen for sale I can't imagine it's a hard job.

You should go the whole hog and get some big over fenders.
