Illuminated tread plates

Post by BAIKAR » Tue Oct 13, 2015 2:51 pm

Hi just wondering has anyone added these to their car? If so what's your opinion of them? I really like the look of them but they are way overpriced.

Hi Baikar I have the "Jaguar" blue illuminated treadplates, which others who have seen them, not just me, think they look good. I think personalisation is one of the features which I appreciate on buying a brand new model.
Its "a bit of old man's bling" as I also have the chrome grille on my Portfolio.
Other than my XE, which is my first ever Jaguar, which I really like despite the very minor niggles, my interest in cars centres around classics. I just sold my 1966 Jensen CV8 which I had for 24 years, a couple of months ago, but still have a couple of others.
The extras are costly but with the discounts etc I felt I could justify the purchase, especially as the residuals will have no impact on me as I plan to keep the car for several years.

Hi thanks for the reply. Have you any pictures of them during the day/night? Can you actually tell if they are illuminated during the day?

Hi
I can assure you they are illuminated when ever the door is opened, the only thing I was disappointed in was that they only come in one colour surround, on my XF they matched the carpet, and there were a choice between black or beige, they are a nice touch tho, I also went for the silver pedals, and the chrome grill, I like my bling.

I've ordered them on mine. Hoping the blue lettering goes with the Bluefire paint. I would like to see a photo or two as well.

A couple of pictures, the tread plates illuminate in all lighting conditions on opening the doors.

They're classed as a Retailer Fit Option which suggests they can be added whenever you choose to pay for them.
