Thanks @GFWilliams. Are you allowed to reveal the specs of your new road exhaust? I could be tempted by one of those...

It’s a non valved exhaust with not much silencing and a decat :)  I’ll post photos and videos when it arrives (aiming for a couple of weeks time).

Will that meet emission regulations limits?

nearly as bad as that bloke on youtube doing a world tour with a Carrera T which he ruined with big lights on the front.

You require a sense of humour to like them. It’s fully reversible and a bit of fun!

I fancied a new look for winter... 

Just a test fit, but gives you an idea of how it’ll look.  I’ll fit them next week after the Silverstone day.

If you space them further apart you could fit a third lamp

 

 

And totally stop the air flow into the rads......

great seasonal addition to the car...

Totally can't agree more - seasonal rallye configuration of an Exige is brilliant

Not that big of a deal during the winter time 😉

as usual I will be curious to see how the lights are fixed to the car and how you will connect everything 😃

I think I'll bolt them to the numberplate holder, then cable tie the rear of the lights to the grill to stop any movement.  I don't want to drill into the splitter obviously.  Numberplate will likely be put on velcro attached to the lights for most driving, then taken off for photos (or just put on for police...)

Wiring doesn't seem massively complicated, the debate is whether I want it to be wired so they come on with main beam, or whether I want an extra switch for them so they're independent.

Personally I'd go for a separate switch, makes it easier to avoid using them too, if the plod get annoyed etc. Also be great for flashing all the 4x4s with lights at head level (read blinding)

How about a LED bar instead?

I have one, it’s a little too sensible looking. I like the cartoon-esque twin big lights :D

fair enough - perhaps they would look better with black covers.

And with the standard lights, I find main beam ok, but it is dipped headlights that need the improvement. You will hardly have these new "eyes" on unless you drive in the middle of the night.

That's a mod I won't be doing. Spoils the front IMO.

Agreed! A mod to far and ruins the look of the car in my opinion
