I believe Slindborg is looking at how to make one.  Might be a UK source soon.

Tim's car worked fine with my spare OEM yellow relay, he believes the Dutch relay has a problem, it's with Batman for testing, Tim still has my yellow relay and as far as I'm aware his car is now fine

For those with an aftermarket illuminated started button, be aware that the Dutch relay does not seem to handle the current drawn by such a button correctly.

See Tims's comment here:

For those either find a used oem relay, rewire in the grey relay, or disable the illumination part of your aftermarket button.

Glad this has been solved, great to have an option for when the yellow relay fails, interesting'fault' with the illuminated starter button, not sure I'd have worked that out

I believe that this should work with an illuminated starter button - just draw power from before the relay rather than after it.

 

Drawing power through the relay activates it. If you draw power before it i assume you should avoid the issue i had.

 

Otherwise, i can confirm the relay works fine.

After selling the last 3 relays to Germany and Italy we where out of stock again. So yesterday we (Richard and me) build and thoroughly tested a new batch of 10 Big Yellow relays for Vauxhall VX220, Opel Speedster and Lotus cars. So we have some in stock again.
