Illuminated door sills source...

Despite there being 150 available in the manufacturers database in germany, it seems getting them to the UK is a problem, not helped by Brexit (apparently). In fact the parts team had only received a requested item ordered in November, yesterday.

So.........having been promised a 3 day delivery and it not having turned up for a month, I had my monies returned.
Is there a 'decent' third party company, producing good quality versions (primarily in the UK, but will go abroad based on good recommendations)?

Thanks

Done!

I'm afraid with the cost of posting added to the price of the item, the Windrestrictor version of the illuminated door sill were just as expensive as the Mercedes version.



Managed to get the sills installed by Mercedes independant 'INAutos', based in Surrey. Installation hour cost and book cost significantly cheaper that the Distributors..


Now onto the next item....
