I was wondering the same thing. My wife has them in her ML 500 and they look nice. I thought it would be a bit "too much" but that is not the case.

Are the sills illuminated in the Euro version?

Cheers

On my car they are not illuminated. When I checked with BMW Individual before ordering they said that illuminated door sills were NOT available for the E60 M5 but were for all other E60 variants. A bit odd but the Individual Brochure confirms this - by the way the Individual Brochure looks like this:

Ahhh, Malachite Green... looks like a new Individual brochure. Do they still claim to do the Individual DVD system in the Touring, like on the website? Because in practice it's not available...

I specified illuminated door sills on my Z4 and they were a dealer fit accessory.

I just checked with my euro M6 brochure and it sais the same thing. Translated it sais: "Door sills with M6 logo, illuminated". There's a picture of it in the brochure and the doorsills are illuminated.

They are available on standard Be-ems as an Individual option, but on the M5 they aren't available. You can probably get the normal ones for the 5 series from individual but it won't have the M5 logo on it.

Nice work, digi, adds up to $3,154.40 (not including labor)...no thanks.
By the way, could you be so kind as to find out the part number and cost to replace the iDrive controller with the newer version which has a leather insert?
That should be a bit more affordable!
Thanks, John

Actually, I think all you need for the 4 doors is the $837 KIT. It should have all the parts. I don't see a part for the i-drive knob
