I just saw these on a coupe at the dealer. 623.00 added on to the sticker. The aft end of the door sills are held on by a 1" square rubber spacer with double sided tape on both sides. The double sided tape makes contact with the underneath of the metal door sill and the painted door frame of the car. The double sided tape was'nt sticking too good though because the aft end of the sill was lifting up on both doors. I tried to press it back down, but could'nt get it to hold. For that price I would expect something that was going to survive the long haul. They looked nice and thick though, but it was hard to tell in the bright showroom that they were even lit untill I placed my hand over the logo for shade.

Doesnt sound like they could be much better than the ebay competition...

If they don't throw money away, then they definitely won't be throwing away $600 on these either...

Updated Instructions

Seams BMW have updated the kit with an additional wire for those that don't have certain options.

A BMW tech kindly emailed these to me when I got 95% through the installation and noticed the difference between what I had and what was in the instructions posted in this thread.
