Illuminated Door Sills

Recently came upon www.grafxwerks.com . They offer illuminated door sills for the E46 M3 crowd. I emailed them inquiring about whether or not they would ever produce a set for the E39 M5. I got an email back saying that they would consider it should there be enough interest.

You can see pictures of the M3 door sill here http://www.grafxwerks.com/products/d...pid=BMWM3-1412 .

Prices will be in line with the M3 ones. Not cheap by any means, but that's the price one pays when no one else has the imagination to produce a nice mod like this. This idea is, of course, very open to ANY of the boards sponsors, if they feel they can produce the part and offer a better price point.

So all that are interested, please post here. Let's make this happen!

p.s.- Let's keep the "rice" comments off this thread. No relevance at all.

So I count 6 in so far (including me). Grafxwerks has told me they want to see at least 10 interested parties. Just 4 more to go.
