    Illuminated tread plates

    Has anyone fitted illuminated tread plates to their XE, if so was the wiring already there?

    According to the fitment instructions, the wiring is in place under the existing tread plate.

    Thanks Ian I thought it was there but need to have a dig around a bit more to find them, is it something you may get when you get your XE or have you included it in your spec?

    They are an expensive option from new, so will get them further down the line. If you subscribe to Topix and take a look at accessories fitment instructions it's there.

    4 clips remove the black tread plate surround and the multiplug is underneath.

    Well I managed to get drivers side brand new on auction site! £75. Ordered the passenger one from Jaguar £134 so all in all just under £210 and yes the wiring is there and worked straight away without any configuration.
