    You are right its sum where around 320 bucks is what i checked with Wasan few months ago... Am afraid of rusts and hence didn't go for it.. It looks pretty though...
    Also its available only for the front door sill and none for the rare:-(

    Seems the price has increased now. I had it installed some 6 months back for 295 Rs

    Yes it seems FIAT is increasing the price of most of it's demanding parts (Eg:- Door Sil plate, Linea Hand rest etc). Is someone from FIAT going through our threads .??:?:

    Andy.. even I had this same concern. So what I did was I cleaned the place thoroughly with some rubbing compound, applied some collinite carnuaba wax on the area and then placed the plate. I know it is not a full proof solution, but maybe to an extend I may be able to prevent rust (Just assumptions..)

    Cinju- Hats off with the innovation. I have installed door sill plates last month.

    Price= Rs390/- (Rs295 is the old price).
    Going to get them pseudo illuminated tomorrow. :p

    Cinju, how much did you pay for it?

    And was the sticker cut with hand or computerized cutting?

    What about the durability of the sticker? The sill plate will take a lot of abuse (contact with shoes etc.) while getting in/out of the car and the sticker wouldn't last for long.

    I paid 150 bucks..Regarding the cutting I am not sure.I think it was cut by hand. What the guy did was he took the scan of the plate, took the measurement of the font from the plate and made the font equivalent in I think adobe illustrator.He just showed me the font he has made and explained to me how he made it.Technical side I am not very sure..Sorry..
