You can include me.

It does seem that it might be hard to get 15 people, though...

What will they charge is if we get 5 people, or maybe 10?

So the regular price is $200 or $210, plus shipping?

Does this company have a website so that I can look at the sills?

Some companies sell only the front the illuminate, and the sills for the rear doors are just sold stainless steel.

I want all four (4) sills to illuminate.

Where do you splice the wires into, to get them to light up?

Talking

thanks for your input but the ones i've seen on eBay have all been really cheaply made...these are from england and i have had input from previous orderers that the quality is really solid and top notch.

but if you want the ebay route...happy hunting!

I've watched them on e-bay, too, and they generally have gone for between $200-$220 in the auctions I've watched...

Gercia is a good company. I have ordered stuff from them before. Be careful because $180 isn't that great of a deal plus you have to pay customs fees. So that would bring the total up to something you could find here locally.

Oh, well, back to the drawing board.

Other than buying them off of e-bay, who sells them?

Dont let me discourage you from getting these from Gericia. I would email them or call them and ask about customs fees. I ordered some stuff from them before and had to pay customs fees. Maybe then can send them as a "gift" or something. There are other companies that sell these, but I forget. lLt me do some checking. I will post back in a day or two.
