My wife's 2017 Abarth was hit in a collision in July. Everything has been repaired, but the body shop has been unable to locate a driver's side headlight assembly, which is apparently currently unobtainium. It has been sitting there for almost three months waiting but they've been unable to find one anywhere. If you have a suggestion of somewhere on the internet to look, I've probably already looked there. Anyone have one or know someone that might have one sitting on a shelf? My wife really misses her Spider.

Visibility package or not? Here are a few I just found after doing a quick search. I know you said you already looked online but figured still worth a shot:

Non Visibility Package: Abarth 124 Spider 2016 Headlight LHS NA5B51040 J145 | eBay

I was going to mention there has been one on eBay forever with led lamps. Believe it is in Australia.

The original poster should stick with finding USA lamps because I have read that there are significant differences between USA lamps and lamps sold elsewhere that affect compatibility. Has anyone overcome these differences to install Euro lights?

See: Buying and obtaining Euro LED headlights into the states.

Thanks for the car-part.com suggestion. I checked that before I saw your message and found several. What really got traction was another site that's a network for salvage yards. I entered my name, phone number and the part I was looking for last night and this morning my phone started ringing off the hook, the first at 5:30 am! I gave the info to the shop, now I'm praying they follow up and get it. I think I had calls from at least 15 salvage yards!

For those that suggested the LED, option, my headlight is the standard and doesn't have the visibility package.
