    Default Exclusiv model

    Hi I have an 08 Exclusiv with the plus pack in dark blue. I am thinking about replacing my rear light clusters with the SRI ones as I prefer the darker lights. I would also like the SRI boot lip. Is the boot lip just stuck on? Has anyone done this before and is it worth doing?

    Also im wondering what type of front headlights are fitted as standard on the Exclusiv as they look like they have a blue tint to them when you pull up behind a car.

    Firstly the rear lights will involve removing the boot trim to give you good access, easy enough though.

    Secondly the SRi boot spoiler is screwed into the tailgate. Although a VXR one would be more expensive it is bonded on.

    Thirdly sounds to me like your exclusive has xenons or AFL which have a blue tint - as you say you have a plus pack.. If you look at the headlight there will be a lens, if there is a blue ring round this lens then you have AFL (Adaptive Forward Lighting).

    Rear light cluster are easy to replace, only 3 small nuts holding them in. I added an SRi lip spoiler to mine, pretty easy to do and you can take the 2 securing bolts off and just stick it on with Double Side 3M tape but I wouldn't trust this tbh, it might end up embedded in someone's radiator grill one day lol. Its an easy job to fix with the bolts supplied, its just a case of taking your time and getting the position of the holes correct first time.

    Thanks for the advise. I would really like the SRI rear lights it finishes it off at the back but they dont come cheap even 2nd hand! Keep searching EBay for them.

    I just went out and looked at the front lens and put a torch towards them and there does seem to be a blue reflection on them in the lens. If it looks like it has xeons or AFL that wasa piece of spec I didnt realise was on the car nice!

    On your light switch panel, to the right the light switch is there one button?

    Sorry bud, you won't have xenons as you have the manual level adjustment. However sounds though someone has fitted the blue halogen type bulbs or possibly HID's - if they are blue.

    Yeah think thats it, never mind thanks for getting me to check anyway. Would you advise upgrading the bulbs at all? The lights that are fitted do seem to be good

    Maybe someone has. The Veccy's headlights are poor to say the least. Some have went down the HID route.
