I opted for the 'bright finish' treadplates instead of the illuminated as I thought the latter were a bit too pricey. Bright finish are £176.

Thanks Triple7 for the info on the sills. I was looking for the non illuminated ones but could see them in the accessories list I have.

I originally speced the illuminated tread plates but seeing them on my test drive I felt a but underwhelmed by them.

I'm surprised the HSE doesn't come with the bright finish ones as standard.

Just to say Hi,
DS ordered in early December, apparently because I have chosen Yulong White I will have to wait a bit.
Build date I have been given is weekend 6th March, which cannot come soon enough, I sold the D3 last week (my 5th discovery) and I am having to rely on a Leon for transport.

Which treadplates do you want? The 'bright finish' are dealer fit, so you can order from the parts dept so should be no issue ordering them?

It's the bright finish ones, so as you say, they will get fitted at the dealers.

My dealer has still not been able to provide a brochure on the DS. This means I have to look at one on a tablet, which is not the same, especially when comparing all the extras etc. I Got a HSE, so possibly should have also upgraded treadplates. I also didn't get heated steering wheel. Too late for any factory changes for me.

Good thinking on the treadplates; I have them on the Evoque and while just cosmetic, they sort of greet you when you open the door. At the preview with all DS there just having plastic all round (also boot and rear doors), I really missed them. I ordered the illuminated version and probably fit the aftermarket stainless steel versions for rear doors and boot (from Ebay)

Just buy the 'bright finish' ones Damien. Yes, heated steering wheel is now my must have on all cars I buy. I would push your dealer a bit, LR will probably be able to amend your order manually.
