Hi just started reading this thread and wondered if you've come across the climate control numbers fading e.g. Only part of the temp number lights up .

Re: My venezia blue cross plus

Do you have a link to the DRL bulbs (or similar)? I've long been wanting to replace my yellow ones with some that match the headlights but seen a lot made of what's legal etc etc so didn't want to pick up the wrong ones.

Mine's a City Lounge, but assume it takes the same bulbs as the Cross...?!

I believe I'm right in saying there are currently NO legal external LED bulbs for the 500X except possibly the number plate bulbs. There are plenty of quality bulbs about if you wish to take the risk though.

Re: My venezia blue cross plus

A chap who works for the dealer where I got my car said he bought some "Xenon effect" DRL bulbs for his 500X from a company called M-Tech, but again I wouldn't know if these are legal or which ones specifically would be the right ones.

Ordered black Alfa centre caps, as the cheap fit ones I have on are peeling already and I canít find Fiat ones that fit properly either so they should be here Tuesday.

Also picked up a pink 500 for my wee girl which is cool as- confirms a normal 500 goes in the back of a 500x.

She will love it because sheís always wanting to go out in daddyís fiat 500 or his yellow punto car- sheís 2 and brainwashed already

My led running lights blew a couple of micro ledís which was bringing up error messages on the dash, so swapped them for 6000k led cree bulbs with a 5 year warranty. Much happier with these as they are the same crisp white colour as the xenons and no error messages.
Also found a set of led number plate lights from Italian ebay that are error free.

Drl bulbs

https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/2x-50W-PURE...=2254527339015

Number plate lights from ebay Italy (the drl were the wrong ones but the plate lamps worked a treat)

Re: My venezia blue cross plus

Simon, I believe you work at a dealership? Perhaps you could clear up a grey area by having a word with your MoT tester. As far as I know, there aren't any retrofit l.e.d. lamps that are road legal. Does the MoT test look at this aspect - several forum contributors have commented that their l.e.d. equipped cars have passed without comment.
The new test which will be carried out from May 20th specifically covers retro-fitted HID headlamps. Owners who have fitted those will be required to remove them and re-fit halogen units.
