I know this is a longshot, but I'm putting it out there. Some of us (me) like the tinted/dark look on the new (500T) lights, perhaps a new 500T owner likes the chrome (Abarth) look better.

I'm up for a swap, and would even sweeten the deal a bit just so I don't have to buy a whole new set of lights.

Ha ha ha.....REALLY long shot that one.

Have you removed the chromed ones yet? I havent as yet but wondered if they can be opened up and painted to give the effect for a few $$$.

I haven't. In fact this all happened because I was in the dealer yesterday and saw the new 500T with the different lights. I thought it would look good on a white car, especially because I have the windows tinted pretty dark. Needless to say, when I got home I saw some condensation on the driver's side tail light... so it got me looking through parts to see what it would cost to replace. Dealer is going to have to swap that light for me.

I'd definitely consider getting the chrome painted. Would have to be less than replacing all the lights. ~$700 parts alone...

Madness did them dechromed but red for the tails on a swap basis so sure its possible not sure if theyre fully sealed units as im not that brave! Condensation a worry as will go green eventually! Maybe the dealer could part exchange for the turbo lights?! Then theres the fronts to match, BIG money :(

How about the newest blacked out ones from the 500e Sport? I think they look great!!

Have you thought about tinting your head lights? it would be a different look, and save you some Green Backs

I may actually bring it to the guys who did my windows... not sure about the legality of it in NY State.

If you figure it out, let me know and I'll shoot him a PM. Do you mean he tints the lens or he resprays the chrome? I'd rather have the chrome done black, but... whatever looks good and is still legal!

Easy to heat up the sealant and open the light then sand and paint the chrome whatever coulor you like. Be sure to reseal them again with some good quality sealant; YouTube has good procedures and there is a DIY on angel eyes that details the process; Oracle was the one with the vid up.
