    Hi guys.
    Does anyone know of a source for the interiour light? Is this the same as for the Elise?

    What happened? Is it missing or just one of the clips broke? If a clip broke just run a loop or two of black electrical tape around the edges and put it back up, it'll hold perfectly. I broke mine putting in the LED, the LED runs cooler so no worry about melting the tape or anything like that. Besides the tape is on the edges, not the top where the heat is most.

    Broken clip when putting in LED :)
    But it has also been very "loose" in switching between modes, so I guess the previous owner has been a bit hard with it or something.

    Good tip about tape, but I found a cheap Elise light on ebay. It looked identical on the pictures so I bought it, so I'll see if it fits, if not then I go the tape route.

    Are the clips on the end of the fixture or the side?

    The Elise / S2 version does appear to be the one as seen in the pic below. It appears its used in other cars too:
    Lotus Exige / Elise courtesy light: donor car?

    I can confirm that the Elise version is the same as Roadster.
