Does anyone on here have easy access to some Cobalt coupe tail lights? Mainly I need the diameter, upper and lower depths, and spacing on the screws that hold them in.

Thanks!

Screw spacing is the same. I can measure everything else maybe some time next week.

Thanks! I'm actually thinking about putting an aftermarket set in my Elise since the '05 non-LED ones I have really date the car.

If aftermarket cobalt ones will work then that'll save a ridiculous amount of money

I'm a little confused about this thread, isnt the Elise a car manufactured by Lotus? Combine that with this is a G5 site not a Cobalt site?

I have a G5, too, so I've been a member of this site for years and know that several on here have a very good knowledge of the whole platform.

I think the best bet is to take the OEM ones and put leds in yourself. I highly doubt the cobalt lights will fit in an elise.

All I need is for them to fit in a 5" hole. Everything else is easy, especially since I have a second clam, a dremel, and no worries about using it.

Adding in LEDs is done pretty often, but that doesn't do anything to improve the actually look of them in daylight, and the function at night is questionable. Plus, that takes more surgery than simply finding a light that fits from another brand. Heck, that happens all the time with OEMs. Parts bin raids are nothing new.

I wouldn't doubt that the cobalt ones would save a bunch of money. Sort of like switching to Geico. :)
Geico paid out after I put that Lotus into a wall during an open track day, so it works out sometimes ;). And yes, they know exactly what happened that day, and no I am no longer allowed to be their customer.
