    Illuminated Door Sils.........

    Well I think this is one of the best options (for the price). Instant 'wow' factor, looks quite nice in the dark, and of course it reminds you which car you have (in case you forgot, lol )


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

    and another picture


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

    looks great

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

    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?

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

    I Like them, they look great!

    I was thinking of putting they on my Cayenne. I'm not sure about the Carrera, but I was told they could easily be retrofitted on the Cayenne.

    Yes these can be retrofitted. One of the dealers quoted me in the 700's (US$) for these. This does not include labor. I don't think they recommend this to be a DIY installation as the sill has to be wired somehow to a power source.

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

    Also forgot to add -- you can get these in stainless or carbon fiber....

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

    Purchased some today from Brandywine $500....Sunset imports was a few $$ cheaper $492 (but a week away)....In terms of install, I just can't justify having the dealer install them at a shop rate of $145/hr....It would have made this bit of fun not worth it.....There is a TSB on how to install them. It's not as easy as you'd think, door trim removal, inner sill removal etc....tapping the wire harness is pretty straight forward. Not rocket science, but not a no brainer either....I'm also going to cover the sills in clear bra as stainless steel is a scratch magnet!

    My car is having a little makeover at the moment...PSE install next week (dealer install), Illuminated sills and then a full paint detail...and then I am staying off these forums, it's costing me a fortune!!!!

    lol, I hear you. I heavily optioned the car with all the frills because of the many positive recomentations for non-performance enhancing upgrades (PSE, Sils, NAV, BOSE, TPMS, 666, Full NAtural leather (ouch ), etc, etc, but at the end, I love every option I have).

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

    I stopped by the dealer today to ask if we can switch the standard sills to the lighted ones. I hope the order can be changed.

    Man they look nice!

    One problem with this forum.... It vacuums money out of your wallet faster than you can say Orek!

    If that is indeed possible, then surely that would kill your resale value?!

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

    In Gemrany it is possible, but only if you orderd it dierectly with the car...!

    I love it, it is really fun , and when i sell the car i will take it away...

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

    That is one feature I would like to have. Looks great.

    If they could be easily removed, with no damage left to the car, then I wouldn't see why it would

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

    There are a original porsche document with blank spaces to order it - you can choose if you want to use a windows font or you can send a scaned writing of you

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

    Anyone have an actual picture of a custom made one? I'm not getting one...just curious to see how these things come out

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

    Guys, what's the option code for this - can't find it on the UK Porsche car config site...is it available in UK?

    Thanks, Ash

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

    I think the illuminated door sills are Exclusive options. Which is why you won't find them on the Configurator.

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

    They are dealer installed and the part #'s are:

    997.044.800.55 CF Carrera
    997.044.800.56 CF Carrera S
    997.044.800.67 CF Carrera 4
    997.044.800.69 CF Carrera 4S

    I don't have the stainless steel part #'s on hand at the moment. Should be in the 2006 Tequipment Brochure.

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

    The option code is CXB and the MRSP is 780 (at least here in the US).
