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

@GFWilliams it's your car, who cares what anyone else thinks anyway!  I like it, looks different. How about some big flappy mudflaps for the rear too!  Hehehe...

Another work of art from Jim at 2bular!

This Exhaust is the same as the system I’ll be fitting soon.  Lightweight system with a decat pipe.  My neighbours are going to love me...

I was looking at these yesterday and wondered what the Ti tips looked like. 

Seeing as I never run my car with the flap closed, it's actually more of an annoying sound, the "lightweight" version made the most sense to me. I just wish he did 100mm Ti tips, but I'm sure I could persuade him haha

I am now using dunlop dz03g semi slick tyres with some more camber and they feel good and are faster than the oem mpsc2 on a dry track

They're quite expensive!

Cup 2 next time for me, unless Pirelli get round to sending me the set of Trofeo R they owe me....

For now, winter tyres will go on :D

They are expensive but good

on the 380 cup the rears are 285 and they don t make all semi slicks on that size

Jim did those tips for me! They look great - really fill out the gap in the diffuser
