    500T to Abarth Badge Conversion

    Hello everyone! Have had a thread going in another forum in regards to my conversion. Today I had my local studio swap all the badges off of my 500T and replace them with Abarth badging. This is just the beginning of quite a few things I am going to have done to the car. Figured I'd hop over here and share with everyone. I know some of you Abarth owners want to see that the 500T headlights would look like on an Abarth, so look no more. I will be posting more pics as I have more done to the car, but for now here is a before and after of the front end.

    I was so jealous of your lights, i just ordered a full set for my abarth. i guess you're making your t look like an abarth, and I'm making my abarth look like a t haha.

    Did you happen to see what the back looked like without the badge at all? Im assuming its held on by pins or screws? I'd love to ditch the badge altogether, but im gonna guess there would be body work to fill the holes where the badge attaches

    One thing I noticed, the Abarth front badge feels very high quality and is made in Italy, while the Turbo one is very cheap and flimsy feeling and made in mexico.

    The back of the Turbo badge:

    I actually meant the rear badge, but judging from how the front is attached, ill assume there are holes in the bodywork.

    Sorry, yeah the rear badge fits in the exact same circular indent that all the 500's have. The Abarth one is just larger and hides it. There are 2 pegs on the back to align the badge and sticky tape. So if you want it flat you are dealing with a rounded indentation and 2 holes.

    I chose the T over the Abarth because of financial and insurance reasons. The deal I got on my car was incredible. It's fully loaded with Beats, sunroof, climate control, heated seats etc. and I got it out the door at quite a bit less than MSRP. Plus, I fell in love with the blacked out look (black headlights on a black car). When I was in the studio I was looking at the Abarth and realized it was just a simple swap so I figured that would be the first thing I would do. Everyone at the studio loved the look yesterday when I was leaving including the sales manager haha.
