Mine had them as an option from new. Like Stevie mine get dirty quickly too but I still love them. I've never looked to see how they're fitted. No idea if they're available other than as an OE part.

The sills are part of the exterior design pack , not sure how difficult they are to fit though.

Without opening the install manual, my understanding from when I was looking into this ... you need to remove the sill panels as the extensions use semi hidden mounts that can only be accessed when the main sill panel is removed.

However, there is a member on here who has installed and he found a body shop that could do it for a very reasonable fee ... I don’t recall his username but hopefully he’ll spot this thread and chip in for you ...

Just a personal view, regardless of the colour of your F-type, I like these in black and not colour coded ... when painted (particularly light colours) I think you loose the sculptured side look and make the flanks of the car look tall and the car shorter ...

So let’s take a step back here as I’ve researched and done this myself at home (no body shop) just paintshop
Firstly any sill extension can be fitted to any sill, even if it did not have them oem. For instance I have the shaped 400 on a 3.0 V6s MY 14
I could have fitted V8 or even SVR has I wanted

The instructions posted refer to replacing sills not adding extensions. You fit them by removing the sills templating around 13 bolt holes and drilling from sills to match. Each sill has corresponding rivnut mountings. It’s very hard to template, but doable with some thought and care and Jag give a clue with a mounting pin at the rear end :)
Ince mounted you refit the sill to the car
They appear to be something like hard abs and can easily be sprayed body or any colour

You can order any sills and bolts from parts depts just with a reg. or chassis number of the style you want
Any more questions ask

Here’s mine fitted to match other mods:

thanks guys,
cj10jeeper I have tried to get just the extended cill, jag will only sell the complete pack (front, back, splitters etc), did you get just the extension if so please give us a clue as to where.

Really - perhaps needs a different approach
First yes of course I purchased just the sill

I’m not going to publish dealer details online so PM me, but I’ve been buying and fitting parts on cars for 30 years. Jags for 10 and never a question.
You quote a chassis number and they order. It’s not difficult to look in a few dealers or cars and find something you like. Just quote the chassis number and order. At most a reg number is sufficient

Hi All,
Have just fitted a set of these to my F-Type and look really good and easy to fit. Just fit using stainless steel screws.
