    Fiat has change entire electrical set-up for new tail lamp. If you wish to fit this under warranty yo need to change whole wiring. If you are not under warranty then you have to live with error in MID and able to use.

    As others said, new one has 5 pin socket than earlier 4 pin. So wiring need to be repalced too. If you can, you are good to go. Fiat is very cleaver.

    Do the LED tail lamps costs a whopping 3.5K per piece if required to be replaced in the earlier Punto models? Thats what the people at Balaji workshop told me. Is this correct?

    Does this include the change to wiring harness?

    Do we have to put any relay to accommodate this new tail light?

    It does look awesome in the LED form.

    Add 1k as labour cost and taxes. So we are looking at 4.5k per piece and 9K for a set. I think thats very steep cost. And why would you expect the prices to drop after 6 months? In fact I would expect Fiat to hike the prices considering that many existing Punto owners might be tempted to change the tail lamp set

    The SA at the balaji service station is of the same opinion. Anyways the cost for the old punto tail light has come down to 700 currently.

    MRP is 3k for one, so 6k for a pair and may be 1000rs for fixing, so it shoudl come around a total of 7k.

    Hi guys, I guess most of you all are looking forward to replace the Tail lamp for your Punto with the new EVO. I had today visited Fiat workshop in Hyderabad and checked with them. It seems that the new EVO tail lamp may not fit as it requires more electrical changes. Also, the shape of the C-pillar on which the tail lamps are mounted in EVO is different from the pre-2014 punto. I really felt very sad when they expressed this..... :(:(:(:(
