    Hello

    I have wanted to install illuminated sills on my C63 coupe for a while and got chance to have a research into it this weekend, and noted on a few forum posts that some cars come pre-wired. I removed a few bits of trim today and found this wire hidden away, which looks like the right one for the sills. I checked for a voltage and it has 12v with the door open, there are a few threads on this forum though where people have said that the sills aren't 12v so you can't just tap into interior lights etc, but this wire certainly has 12v to it, so am I going to need a voltage convertor or are they indeed 12v?

    Thanks in adcance

    I looked in the brochure and they are a £625 option, no wonder nobody specced them.

    I’ve done this install on mine.
    If you buy genuine sills (managed to find some 2nd from Germany) they are just a plug and play no wiring needed.

    The little blue plug under the carpet is pre wired. It was just tucked away depending on what options the car had when new.

    Forgot to say thank you for the heads up on this, I did message the seller for some more info re the wiring but didn’t get a response, they sold for £80! Wish I jumped in at the end now
