They are like hens teeth to find used. EBay is a good bet but prepare for a wait.

May not be of interest but there is a pair of new ones currently on eBay - only trouble is they’re £375 !!?
Outrageous for items that probably cost no more than £30 to produce in China or Poland.
I was lucky as I found a pair of secondhand ones on eBay. I think the seller missed out because he listed them simply as ‘Jaguar trim’ so they probably wouldn’t appear to anyone searching specifically for ‘treadplates’. Picked them up for less than £100 - still a lot for what they are but they do look good!

Yes I think the retail price is £375. Ridiculous for 2 pieces of light up trim! They had deals on the XF one recently at £200 a pair which I would have taken, if they fitted the XE!

Forgive me if I’m teaching granny to suck eggs (probably a politically incorrect statement these days!) but if you do manage to find a pair of s/h ones then make sure the clips are all present and undamaged - they’re very easily bent when removing from the car (4 each side)

You can find that the clips break upon removal, and the metal parts drop down into the sill. I used a small magnet on a stick to retrieve these, and then 10mm plastic fir tree clips to hold the treadplates down on a previous Xe.

I can get hold of the metal clips quite easily so dont mind, still looking for a pair though!

Managed to pick these up from ebay germany

£250 it worked out delivered. Hopefully theyll actually turn up lol but will keep you posted. I think they have one more left if anyone wants them although it does seem 2 or 3 clips are missing so just be aware.
