    Hi all,

    I'm driving a Euro-spec roadster 2.5, and while installing my HIDs and mudflaps, I noticed the wiring for the US-sidelights is still there and has power. The spot where the sidelights used to be are filled with some rubber sealant to cover the hole.

    I would love to re-enable the orange sidelights/side markers for visibility-reasons, but I don't know what type they are by default... Anyone here who can help me out or has close-up images of the US-spec side markers on the inside?

    Thanks in advance!

    Same marker lights as the Elise.

    Checking out what's still on my car... seems all I'm missing is the cable and the light itself. The rest is still in place, although it's plastered with some rubber goo.

    Does anyone happen to know what connector that is? H13? H11?

    nevermind, I found the answers thanks to my brother's research :)
    Turns out the current markers are perfectly useable, except for the missing leds in them. I'm going to find some leds, wire them to the right location and we'll see what happens
