Are those super duper ones or cheapies from ebay? It looks like you can get them very cheaply these days

I bought them from PNM http://www.pnmparts.co.uk/elise-exige/e ... s1-96-01-m

They seem do do a set with halo now too.

I know you can get them dirt cheap on eBay but I couldn't be bothered with trying to make the brackets up etc. They are making a reasonable profit on these for sure, but at least there is some comeback if anything goes wrong and the brackets were pre-fitted and good quality. They have appropriate E markings etc for UK. They are literally plug and play.

First drive in the dark... game changer for an S1. All I need to do now is put LED bulbs in the driving lamps to make them the same colour.
Well it moves... might as well make the most of it....

You’ve just reminded me I was going to try some H7 Can bus LED lamps.

Tempted to try the LED bulbs in all of the lights, spotlights, indicators, brake lights and all.

My Stack unit would dim and the indicated water temperature would change when I turned my lights on. I have heard that the LED lights pull less amps. Must check to see if the Stack still does that...

Craig thinks it is the voltage regulator in the stack unit. Not been an issue so far and not getting any worse other than the temperature indication changing when I turn the fan or the lights on.
