I have an Esprit which I will be upgrading shortly with the later model rear panel with round lights. The round lights are same as what come on Elise / Exige.. Would prefer LED but

A. Used LED are unobtanium

B. New are both out of stock and HOLY CRAP they are HOW MUCH? prices..

Looking at other solutions and ran across this company and thus posting here to see if anyone has gotten them and their opinions on them, etc.

Be forewarned that the factory LED light packs are very "Lotus" and tend to have issues. There was a resistor pack upgrade that happened in 2009(?) that seems to cure some of these issues but after implementing the fix mine started acting up again after a few months. I've just learned to deal with it.

Didn't earlier Esprits use Toyota taillights? I thought I remember seeing that somewhere.
