These illuminated door sill plates were likely to be my next OEM accessory for my 2015 LTZ too, but they are certainly expensive and now that I know have expensive the labor is, it might have to be something I save up for. Plus, I want to get a few minor issues that are going on with my Cruze completely addressed first, because there's no point putting money into the car to make it more aesthetically pleasing if the **** thing is going to continually have random issues pop up.

My mom's 2012 cruze, has the OEM cruze door sill plates, but stopped working already completely. I heard they are not that durable
I don't realize there were reliability issues with the illuminated door sill plates. Maybe the few members who actually have them can/will chime in and tell us how they have held up?! Like I said, I certainly want these but for the price and the price of labor, I need them to be issue free once installed.

Something to consider, the OEM ones are "inside"(of the weatherseal), on the plastic part of the door sill. The aftermarket ones I've seen are one the "outside" on the flat metal part. Which looks better in my mind.
Yeah, I've always thought it was pretty strange that the OEM ones go on the plastic part of the door sill! It kinda defeats the purpose because I wouldn't want to scuff them up, lol! I'd rather just scuff the plastic up rather than the nice illumination plates, but what can you do?

So do they cut out a space in the plastic part of the door for the illuminated door sill plates to sit in? Or do the illuminated sill plates replace that whole plastic piece?
