Where to get LED M Performance Door Sills for F32?

I've been looking for LED M Performance Door Sills for my 2018 F32 for a while now, haven't been able to find them for sale yet. Does anyone know where I can find these?

Google '51472361174'. You'll find that it's no longer available. They probably discontinued them because they have a history of failing.

I was also looking for these and discovered they have been discontinued. I searched for used ones and had no look. In the end I got some 2 series illuminated sills, they fit very well and very happy with them, so try a search for those..

A tip for you, do not end up settling for those chinese ones, they are crap, not waterproof, scratch easy and look cheap.

You can see how the 2 series ones look on my F32 here:

The BMW aren't waterproof either. That's probably why they discontinued them. After a year the one on my drivers side died. When I opened it up the innards were corroded from water. The passenger was OK, since that door is seldom used. I swapped them, after water proofing the good one.

This site ^^ Aliexpress is pretty dope and super cheap. It definitely isn't OEM parts and sometimes the quality is a little off, but most of the time that I've shopped on there for cosmetic items for my car they've been such good deals and were quality products. Their customer service is pretty chill too if you end up receiving something that isn't what you thought it would be. Only downside is majority of their products ship from China so you might not see your package for a month +. Also, if you do order from them make sure you stay on top of your order and deliveries so you for sure get them and they don't get lost in transit. Needless to say I only shop on their for aesthetic stuff for my car lol idk if I trust whoever's making those goods so cheap enough to install a mod for my engine or my brakes.

I thought maybe you were talking about the projection LEDs above the door sill.

These are too small for an F32 and wont fit.

My second OEM sill lamp gave up the ghost this week, so I ordered a pair of these in the BMW version: https://www.thebloomcar.com/collecti...ed-light-pedal

I checked them out on youtube, where I found a code for 15% off, FALL15, so the price came down to $68 shipped. For that amount I figured why not. They ship from China, of course, so I don't expect to see them for another ten days. I'll report back when I get them.
