Rear Panel Eliminator

Post by dennosaw » Sat Dec 13, 2008 11:22 pm

Just wondering, Is it legal to run an S2 Elise in the UK with the front and rear grills removed? Nothing at the front and rear panel eliminator a the back?
Cheers

Think the only legal problem would be if you had previously had reflectors on the rear panel, and didn't after the rear panel eliminator.

Not a worry with the LED lights as these have the reflectors built in.

As far as the front goes, not sure how much damage rabbit or pheasant would make to the rad, but doubt its a legal worry.

Will I thought it was the other way around with std lights having reflectors in.....either or it would need to be one mega picky MOT centre to notice that!

No definitely the LED lights with reflectors hence the reflectors on the rear panel being dropped for the 06 cars.
