Just looking for input.

Looks like McGeorge and Sparks have them for under $70. I like the look. Are they quality?

They're cool compared to plastic, but they are not 1/4" aluminum plate. I like them and they're easy to install. Others will tell you they are flimsy and lightweight (I say GOOD!) and they are not worth it. They are for sure more durable than the original plastic.

They are an awesome little upgrade and help to break up the black on black on black interior when you open the door to hop in, and they class the place up a bit
SUPER easy install with good instructions, just be absolutely sure you have it lined up before your stick it, take youe time its only going to be 10 minutes anyway. I have had no problems and nothing but compliments on mine

I actually have a set of custom-made carbon fiber sills that I bought off eBay a few months ago for $50 or so...they look great with the flint mica paint, clean very easily (since they're smooth), and appear to be quite durable.

Actually under $65 for the set and they are going to come off back order in early January. We'll ship the same day they arrive here.

well if you would lower your price on the billet grill a bit, I'll package them together *wink wink*

give us a quick post here when they come off back order, ken. I think everyone here has convinced me.

wait wait!!! let me try to convince you too!

they are nice, and one of the first things i added. they tie in well with the other aluminum products (knobs, pedals, etc...) and brushed silver dash finish.

okay, now be convinced.

We just received the first ones and they've all been shipped. We have a load coming and I don't expect it to be too long. I'll let you know.

Okay, you talked me into it. The grille just dropped another $17 + to $199.00, but just for the first week of Jan.

The sills are in stock now and the feedback I'm getting is that it's a 5 minute install and they definitely improve the looks of the car.

I saw them in person the other day. They look sick, so my girlfriend went and ordered them for my birthday.

will the door sills work with custom side skirts that come with body kits? do you guys think the body kit manufacturers make their side skirts with the idea that a customer may want to add the door sills to the skirts?

There is almost no way to tell until you get the skirts, but the ones from Scion only stick on to the sill with double sided 3M tape. The only modification you may have to do is drill one hole in the skirt in the door sill area, because the new sills use a tab to align them, but it should be easy to transfer that hole.
