    I wouldn't if i were you or the CANbus system will throw up an error code due to the current draw being affected.

    With the Veccy you can't just splice into wiring like a normal car m8. Most of the electrics are signal not voltage

    Fitting relays so there will be very little current drain made on the headlight/sidelight circuits maybe?

    Dunno, I would try it and see what happens, but would also suspect a bulb warning light to come on or something similar
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
