Rear Lights

Post by cdco2 » Sat Feb 25, 2017 10:28 pm

So the origonal 13 year old light fittings are lookjng a tad tired... not to mention the center disk in one likes to drop out every now and again... the cost of lotus origonal LED units or the elise parts ones make me gulp , but found these aimed at aftermarket commercial vehicles etc. Whats the groups thoughts ?

At about £100 for all 4 feels like good value

I was thinking of doing something similar for the S1, there a few caravans that use round lights that are about £11 quid each not led though that I was going to try and 3D print and adapter ring so didn't have to redrill the clam etc..

They look like they might fit straight in, might have to get one to see how they look and fit.
