Re: Abarth Tail lights / Rear lights

Here's a set of the originals with the bulb cup removed

Took ages with a pair of long nose pliers, they're easily unclipped but the cup needs breaking up to remove through the bulb hole.





I can't see it making much difference to Abarth rears though

Looks better like that than they currently do!
I can imagine getting rid of the orange glow from the abarths would look smart, cheers for that

Re: Abarth Tail lights / Rear lights

I know this is off topic but has anyone bought the short aerial mast off parts world? And is there any point in doing so?
Cheers

Re: Abarth Tail lights / Rear lights

I bought a short 'Abarth' look aerial because i wanted a short one. I got it red, as i wanted it red. All there was to it really, and thats all there is to it tbh. If you want a short one, buy the short one. Its just an aesthetic alternative to the long standard one.

I would advise buying a genuine one, as the non official one i bought is pretty poor for receiving radio. I don't use the radio hardly at all, so it doesn't bother me, but its certainly worth considering if you do use the radio.

Before you replied I was looking through your pictures and I noticed the red aerial, it looks smart and it looks nice because its smaller! I'm also guessing but parts world is all genuine products? It claims it is hahha

Yes, partsworld deal with all Genuine Fiat parts So you can buy with confidence.

And yeah, the shorter aerial does look a lot smarter IMO. The abarth one more so than my funky red one I just wanted to stick with the white/blac + subtle red theme for mine
