I think they look very cool and definately something I am going to do this winter. Door sills will be first. I plan to have Bill Luke show me how to take the door sill off the next time I am in there. Steven is my service manager and is pretty nice. Someone already scratched the passenger side on the chrome version. I don’t think this will show scratches much or i will get some film and cut it to size.

I just can’t deal with this stuff until it cools off. My patience is not good on tooling around outdoors from now until October 1.

Personally I think this is the coolest looking add. My husband even said yeh, this is a must.
I have Xpel applied over my CF sill covers and I still have a scratch on the driver's side. These are pretty well protected from sunlight, so that there is little chance of the film self healing. Maybe I should give it some encouragement with a hair dryer or heat gun?

One quickly learns to "pick up your feet" to get in and out of Giulia; either that or just trash the car.

The lighted sill covers are there every time I open the doors and certainly have not "gotten old". They have a very good smile to cost ratio.

BTW: Don't bother with the aluminum fuel cap; that is just $80 wasted. It looks nice but functions poorly.

this is awesome, thanks for posting. I've been eyeing those sills as a fall project. My last car had lighted sills and it adds a nice touch.

https://centerlinealfa.com/catalog/carbon-fiber-door-sills-giulia Set 799.00
https://shopeurocompulsion.net/prod...bon-fiber-lighted-door-sill-alfa-romeo-giulia Each 399.00
https://moparonlineparts.com/alfa-romeo-giulia-carbon-fiber-door-sill-guards-p-7724.html 370.04 each 68353803AA

The door light is also listed on the Mopar site Part Number 82215827 but from what folks have said you get the biggest bang with the lighted sill.

I think Madness may have them but I couldn't locate the link
We've got them alright. Here is the link;

Are those prices really EACH sill?....the links all show two, and don't have a separate left/right which would be different orientations.

The ones from Madness don’t look like they light and it doesn’t say anything about them being lit at night. Can someone clarify that those actually do light? I know the ones on Eurocompulsion do but want to make sure these ones do as well.

The EC price is for a pair. I bought them during last year's year-end sale. Even so they are kind of pricey, yet the smiles/$ ratio is pretty good...

Sounds like a reason t wait for a sale. Thanks Lockem. I thought that 799 was two. Amazing how unclear they are and to Robertmee’s point I would think each side would need to be selected but didn’t see an option.

So who ran the sale?

We can do a group install with lessons learned :smile2:

It was EC's sale, announced on the forum. I have no idea if/when they will have another.
When I checked a couple of days ago their website price is $399 US, not 799 for the illuminated CF sill covers.

With USA import duties being in place on car parts, it might be wiser to buy sooner rather than later.

Okay is that each 399 or a pair for both front driver/passenger sills?

They only fit the front and as far as I know they are only sold in right-left pairs. Due to the sale I paid a little less than the current $399 price.

Okay I didn't snap these when I had the chance but I checked Madness @399 a pair and Moparpartsonline.com are on sale now for $370.04 part number 68353803AA. I don't know what is going on with centerline they show $799 WTH. https://centerlinealfa.com/catalog/carbon-fiber-door-sills-giulia

Hopefully Centerline can tell me why they are pricing like that when the MSRP at full dealership is $550 and it is the same set of two.

@centerline...What is up?

I will follow up and see if EC has a better price. I am buying these for my hubby for Xmas because I know he will just love to open the door and see those lights come xmas morning. (May be the only time he gets to drive it :eek:)) KIDDING!!!!!

Thanks to all the tips provided, I was able to install mine easily today. Took me less than 10 min to complete both sides.

You really need to lose those film protectors.
Those look great next to the Sparco seats. I wish I had CF seats...
