Sorry to hear...but I think I speak for everyone here when I say that you're initative is appreciated.

If the illuminated door sill movement was started with a front and rear package in mind, I would most definately have jumped on it...and that is why i refrained from posting "count me in."

Hopefully enough people will chime in to show you their appreciation...otherwise, this may be the last time you put yourself out there for the board.

Thanks for the LED lights mod credits Vason. 'Appreciate it.

The lighted doorsills looks great. Excellent job YYZ-M3!

I never said Count Me In on this group buy and I never signed up, but I am considering doing this mod too sometime soon. Perhaps after the lightweight battery upgrade.

It's a cool visual enhancement at night. A little pricey but I'm glad I did it. Check out my pics in post #208. Install was fairly easy as well.

Bought the amber ones but haven't installed them. They look too different from the original ones. However if the rear ones also were available in amber I'd contemplate to buy those as well and have the whole set installed.
The ones that look most like the original ones are the ones to buy. Otherwise it would look funny when you have the front and the rear door open at the same time

As for pics. I'm having a real hard time getting it to show up on my crappy digital camera correctly. No flash and all you'd get is the door sill lit up at night. With flash you can't see that it is lit at all. During the day, it just looks like you have white door sills. At night is when it starts to really stand out.
I cant believe this, saw what was in your door pocket! you roll just like me With an ASP baton in the door!!!! great minds think alike!!
