I read on an old post that the rubber ones are cheap to replace form the dealer? Does anyone have a part number?

Have you replaced the rubber door sills on your 107? Did you go back with the rubber or did you redo them with metal? I am looking for inspiration. The driver's side on my car has cracked rubber door sill and it is looking bad.

A 107 686 01 80 Somewhere in the fog I remember they used to be side specific then switched to same for both sides.

Yes, there were two p/n A 107 686 01 80 and A 107 686 02 80, however the difference between them is negligble as one of them has a tiny cut out in a corner. I think the part is NLA currently, I got them a few years ago and plannning to fit them this winter following the respray. You may be able to get genuine ones on Ebay etc or cheap aftermarket ones but I can't speak for quality.

Not sure the metal are a good idea. I have metal on my W220 and they tend to show scuff marks.I suppose I shouldn't drag my feet.:)

I literally just received a metal set in the mail. Couldn't find the original maroon rubber ones, other than new-old-stock, which was actually more expensive, and they allegedly had white staining on them. I'll let you know how the metal ones fit, but I'm sure others have used these before. Mine's a bit of a garage queen, so wear and tear or moisture issues aren't of concern. My main issues were shipping costs to Australia and the currency exchange rate.

Those silver ones going from the carpet over to the sill can be safely polished. They are stainless steel. Mine had stiletto heel scratches on them and I managed to polish them out. The previous owner was a David Jones fashion buyer and had real custom made sheepskin carpets in the driver side to protect her fancy shoes! :eek:

And although it's lost some of its status these days, those were the days when David Jones was really the ducks nuts. Can imagine hanging out with that car back then...
Anyway, these polished metal ones fit pretty well.

I like Chrome Door Sills.
The previous owner of my 560SL installed them.

Mine look bad. The color does not even match the interior. I am considering metal or maybe just black.
Looks like I have the same color seats, carpet and door panels. What color sill mat should you have to match?
Maybe cream?
