I do like how these look but I would also like to know where you would run the wire too and how to connect it?

Not for anything but that price is stupid high. For instance.....

New LED Stainless Door Sill Scuff Plate for Kia Sportage R 2010 2011 2012 | eBay

That said, when you install these, you just run the wires under the carpet. You can either hook them up to a switch so they are manual, to the parking light live wire so they come on with the lights or figure a way to rig them up to the dome lights so they come on when a door opens.

That's cheap! Great find! :rolleyes: I like it when the door opens but could not find in the net any instructions for installing the LED sill particularly on Sportage.

Yeah, you might not be able to locate the instructions, although the product might come with them. I can't imagine them selling something like that and not telling people how to install them.

I have them installed, and they didnt last more than 4 months, both driver and passanger led are now completely dead, in my opinion its a waste of time, its only a matter of time until the 2 remaining goes dead

Have tried both brands, i installed them so they would turn on when the doors where opened, but its crap quality

Just ordered these OEM from Korea, Sportage, not Sportage "R" (which doesn't exist in the US to my knowledge) more expensive, but OEM, no lights, but who needs 'em

Take a look at these and the other stuff he's selling, OEM Hyundai part numbers, some packaging written in Korean. Gut feeling is they're genuine or I wouldn't have bought them. There's a lot of aftermarket Chinese crap out there, i.e. the LED scuff plates. My wife's Hyundai Veracruz LTD has genuine came-with-the-car lighted scuffs, not really impressed.

I guess my bigger problem is that you are a Jersey driver. :p
