Update:

I have not been able to contact Mick Harzhall from Transforged.
Through Facebook you will find a phone number that is not answered. Email and link to the Transforged.com domain which is down.
Google led me to some other (lotus) forums at one of which I left a message for him but no reply so far.

meanwhile, I have found two 50mm red halos on aliexpress. Once they arrive I will know if the color and lumen are comparable.
If so, I will replace and thoroughly seal the pods and hope for the best.


For the headlights I have ordered your set from your headlight guy @jason.tv

I will keep you posted.

Curious if anyone had an outstanding order for a set of lights from Transforged? If so, they may want to scramble real quick - either find a way to contact them or get the charge reversed on their card.

Transforged is a clueless moron who had no idea whatsoever about how to make a good product. He had now idea what I was talking about when my friend helped him with the right type of resistors on them and they are horrible when i comes to moisture. STAY AWAY!!!

If you want a product that looks cool and actually works. Contact GregsRaceParts.com GRP and see if they have the time to make a set for the Roadster. They have made good quality products for Lotus for a while now.

If anyone here wants to contact Greg for a group buy I'll be glad to jump on board.

I stick to my current taillights for now.

I have opened the two outer smallest units and noticed that there was water damage.

I received the 2 50mm red halo leds from AliExpress today. Only EUR 7!

Disconnected the broken halos and connected the new.

Sealed the units as thoroughly as possible with glue. I will also apply sealant afterwards, on the outside of the rings as well as inside the rings where the tinted glass is.

Everything works again.

Perfect, thank you! If I wanted to buy the other lens as well which sizes should I pick? Although the ones from Transforged work fine right now I just want to have extras on hand in case I need to swap them out like you did.

Guessing taking the outside diameters I would say 100mm and 80mm.

it makes sense to order a spare set I agree.
The inner halos keep fine for now but you never know.

I text Greg daily about this and a few other roadster projects.

we need to meet MOQ.

i've contacted GRP via their webstie contact form and haven't getten any response. i also contacted them with another question and also didn't hear anything. could be C-19 issues.

might be good to create a Group Buy thread and collect interest and send that to Greg?

you seem to have a long standing relationship with GRP from your Lotus ownership.

what is the Minimum Order Quantity?

Just sent him a text, I suspect an answer will be given within a day or so, likely MOQ of 10.... but I can’t speak for him.

I’ll start a thread when I have info and we can get a group buy going.

Has anyone thought about some sort of replacement panel for the fans, to exhaust more heat and possibly allow for brushless spal fans?
