    Re: Illuminated Door Sils.........

    That reminds me of a guy I knew who couldn't figure out why someone would want to paint his name all over his Ford Explorer - Eddie Bower edition.

    It looks pretty good to be fair. I thought about the extra didn't go for it in the end. Can these be retro fitted?



    I wanted them on my car from new. Was a bit disappointed when the dealer said that they could not be fitted in Germany but only when the car arrived at the dealership!

    I seem to recall Pounds400 and about 3-4 hours labour. So I left my standard stainless ones on the order.

    Why can Porsche themselves not fit these!

    Re: Illuminated Door Sils.........

    My sils were ordered (installed) at the factory and on the window sticker was labled as 'exclusive options'

    Re: .........

    In Germany you can get and install normal Illuminated Door Sils after buying the car.... but the "personal" Illuminated Door Sils only by factory ( Exclusive )

    Re: .........

    Called the dealer to find out if my door sills had arrived yet....No they hadn't, but he had a very good excuse, & they were definately illuminated!!!

    OOOPS!!! A new set are on the way, as these have a carbon look to them ...FYI it took 4 hours to put the fire out (thankfully no serious injuries)

    Re: .........

    Is it true that the aluminum sills scratch easily? Is it weird to get carbon fiber sill, if I have no other CF part in the car?

    Thanks

    Re: .........

    Stainless does scratch easily. You can always get it coated with 3M Scotchguard. I have CF door sills (non-illuminating so far) but I also have carbon fiber trim throughout the vehicle. On a black car, CF sills look pretty cool - interior CF trim or not.

    How come "Eddie Bower Edition"?

    Was Ford too cheap to pay a license fee to Eddie Bauer?

    Probably because of the logistical headaches it would cause to integrate them into a "just-in-time" production system.

    Actually, just for a change that answer was meant to be perfectly serious.

    Re: Illuminated Door Sils.........

    hi everyone, i remember myself posting this info on illuminated sills along with aluminium look and carbon sills
    one year ago!!!

    where many people thought of it a a poser feature!!!!!!!!

    well i kind of liked them, i also have seen quite few pics with individual names on it....

    like "beast"" etc...


    also if you remember in the exclusive porsche book 2006, and 2006 there is a cayenne turbo with illuminated door sills
    mentioning "400HP" and i ve seen some more also...


    what i dont remember is if the illuminated door sills come also in carbon and aluminium BUT illuminated at the same time!
