The only complaint about our V3 tail lights was the overall brightness of the brake lights in direct sunlight. We have taken this into heavy consideration and created a new and improved V4 light which has a sleeker, sharper and much brighter light output!
These new V4 lights maintain a similar overall look as the V3 did on the outside but its the inside that counts. Now featuring a projected light output vs a diffused light output giving a sharper ring of light output for an even more modern and updated look while the lights are on.
The turn indicator lights are a hidden halo type light in the middle of the units. These lights are hidden until illuminated giving all of the lights the same exterior presence and cohesive look.
All 2001+ Series 2, Series 3 Elise and Exige - Cars that came with four lights from factory.
2002-2004 Esprit - Cars that came with four round lights from factory or have been converted.
All lights are built with Red lenses, Yellow/Amber turn signals and White Reverse lights as pictured
These lights are sold in sets of four! Qty of 1 = 4 lights
For those fitting these into project cars or cars other than Lotus, these measure 4.75" in outer diameter and 1.80" tall from base to top edge of the lens. There are also carbon fiber bezels available to make the outside diameter 5.1"
Please email us if you need any other info on them!
Plug and Play, Made with oem wiring connectors for a seamless install. No Splicing or cutting of your factory wiring harness required.
Lights Perform the same exact functions your oem lights do: Running Lights, Brake, Turn, Reverse, Fog (Euro customers - if selected)
UV stable Acrylic lenses, wont yellow or deteriorate in the sun.
LED Rings with built in light diffusers. Provide a solid ring of light output
Red lens lights feature a cnc machined dark center lens which hides the turn indicator lights.
Stainless steel mounting studs for oem quality mounting into your oem light bezels.
Stainless flange lock nuts included
Reflectors are optional. Some areas of the world require a reflective element in the tail lights, we provide this at no cost if desired. When installed these cant be seen until a direct light source is shined on the lights. They sit below the dark center area of the taillights.
For all cars (except Exige 350 sport) a led turn signal relay is included to alleviate "Hyperflashing" of the turn signals. This is a direct replacement relay that plugs in under the center/passenger side dash of the car. See this video for reference on how to install the relay -- start at 10:15 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=osxT5vp_xKw&t=2s
U.S. & Euro (Rest of the World) Wiring/Lighting Configuration Options
Inner Lights Perform Fog Lights, running lights & Reverse Lights OR Running lights, brake lights and reverse lights - See Option explained below
For Euro Spec wiring you can opt to have the fog lights remain functioning or if you dont require fog lights you can have the wiring set to have all four lights work for running lights and brake lights. Make your choice in the drop down menu when ordering.
With fog lights still functional you will be able to have all four lights work for running lights but only the outer two for brake lights.
If you opt to not have fog lights all four will work for running and brake lights -- the inner two running lights will be operated with the fog light switch.
Whats in the Box:
You will receive four complete light units with new locking nuts for install along with a 3-Pin LED turn signal relay (if applicable).
These lights are sold in sets of 4! Qty of 1 = 4 lights
These are very simple to install, simply pull back the carpet in each corner of your trunk area, unplug the oem lights, and loosen the two 8mm nuts holding them in place. Sometimes the oem lights will need a little tapping from the backside to remove, make sure to hold one hand over the outside so they dont fall to the ground! Reverse these steps for install of your new lights!
*In some instances with newer Elise & Exiges there may be the need for resistors to be installed in the turn signal circuit. This is a simple and easy task if its needed and we can help with info and pictures. Please email if your new lights hyper-flash after install.
Unless noted on the order or in an email prior to the order we will build the lights just as they are ordered, if you decide to change the spec afterwards some charges may apply.
