I read the thread on the battery tender but had a question. If I don't have the 12v adapter can I just attach the leads to the battery itself? Or is this just a PITA? Haven't even opened the battery compartment so don't know the difficulty of going this route. Some cars like my M3 has a convenient positive terminal and ground bolt to attach to. Guess the Lotus doesn't..

Thanks for any advice.

You can also plug a charger/tender into the 12V outlet between the seats.
I hang the battery tender from the garage door rails above the passenger side of the car. I leave the passenger window open to accommodate the wire. It's very convenient.
Note that I had to change out the Euro-spec socket with a US-spec part because the tender plug would not stay in.
Didn't think this would work as it's not active unless a key is on. That would be ideal if it did though.

Done. I attached pigtail to the battery terminals and it's hanging out so I can plug in as needed.

On the LED bulbs- anyone have a list of which ones and part numbers/type?
