Long story short, lady was texting at a red light, and when she noticed her vehicle was rolling because she took her foot off the brake, she floored it instead of smashing on the brake as she intended... yay! Icing on the cake, is she's not insured, of course.

So I have a jacked up 500T rear bumper, and figured if I am replacing it anyway perhaps I could upgrade to an Abarth bumper and dual exhaust.

Any experience with this? Searched, but couldn't find anyone that did the conversion.

Shouldn't be particularly difficult to do. The exhaust will have to be sourced and the OEM one will have to be cut near the rear axle though. Would probably be easier to use an aftermarket option.

Thank you, sounds like a plan. So the hangers and everything should be present then for the exhaust on the 500T for a dual out (I'm being lazy and haven't really crawled under my car yet)? Do you have a recommendation on a aftermarket dual Abarth-style exhaust that will fit the 500T?

Ideally, if this works, I may see if I can find a totaled white Abarth in my Houston area from a front-end impact and see if I can salvage parts.

I put an Abarth axel back exhaust and diffuser on my 500T. The bumper on the Abarth and Turbo are the same. You will probably need to have a shop weld an extra hangar for the Abarth exhaust, unless you weld. You don't have to cut anything. The Turbo exhaust unbolts just before the rear axel.

Ducman69,

I'm sorry about your 500T getting rear ended. We do offer an affordable 500T MADNESS Performance Dual Tip Exhaust/Rear Diffuser Kit.

The kit comes with everything you need:
MADNESS Dual Exhaust, OEM Rear ABARTH Diffuser, mounting hardware and addition exhaust hanger (which needs to be welded on) for the dual set up. I have attached pictures of this kit on a 500T.

Please note the diffuser in the photos is aftermarket, our kit includes an OEM Rear ABARTH Diffuser:
