BMW Illuminated Sills-Kickplates

Does anyone know where one can pick up illuminated BMW kickplates for the 2009 coupes? Mine will come with the BMW logo on it, but it is not illuminated.

And I do not feel that paying $200 is a "justifiable price" when other logos can go for less than $100 on ebay which comes with pretty good workmanship.

Thanks!!!

$500+ from the dealer? I am sure someone makes sills with great craftsmanship for alot cheaper. If there were someone out there who can do it, they would make a killing off of us BIMMER modders and drivers out there.

I haven't seen aftermarket aluminum sill yet.

I have them, and they do not come up too often for sale. If you're buy point is around $200, you may be a while before you find a set. GL

I was able to pick up a pair of Honda Civic Illuminated Kickplates for under $100. I just dont see why BMW Kickplates have to be so expensive.
