Trying to source some original Fiat scuff plates, has anyone else had these! Apparently on back order. What does that mean?!?
Bit pricy for what they are, but hate it when door sills get scuffed.

Re: Scuff Plates

Back order usually means out of stock which they are re-newing. You can get some far cheaper non OE ones on ebay.

Re: Scuff Plates

I bought these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CARBON-Ve...kAAOSwr7ZW47Nx Yes its only 'toughened' Carbon look 'stickers' but they appear to be pretty hard wearing and the 'X' is hollowed out so appears Red on my car as per the badges! Plus they are 20 which may be alot for stickers but cheaper than those Fiat ones! Will add a photo asap

Re: Scuff Plates

Whilst I do like original Fiat accessories and have always bought original in the past the cost of them scuff plates is just silly. How do they get to that price for gods sake.

I'd like to know what you think of the carbon ones.

On a similarish theme, do others here find that the front driver door cubby hole gets a lot of marks on it? Mine does. I think it's because it's a little bulbous vs the rest of the door and I must knock my foot on it and scuff once in a while when changing from braking to accelerating (auto).

Yep same here... I would say its a design fault. Every 500x Ive looked at all have scuffs on the drivers door. The pocket sticks out too far. Im always using black bumper spray to clean it off

Re: Scuff Plates

You want to see the prices of illuminated Sills on other vehicles in the FCA range. I have them fitted to my Delta 3 - the OE dealer prices from new was not far off 200 - for a bit of brushed Alu and an LED light circuit! BTW our Door pocket gets kicked as well..................

Did they take 40 days to arrive, do you have any photos of them on your car?

Re: Scuff Plates

Photo attached they look good and show no sign of the wear and tear they've suffered over the winter. Absolute bargain I see they are reduced to US$ 14.59 post paid for the next 3 days. You can't go wrong!!

Re: Scuff Plates

To be fair, the door bins get scuffed in all my cars, it's a consequence of providing a bulge big enough for a bottle.

Re: Scuff Plates

Just seems to be more noticeable on the 500X for some reason? You'd think they would make it with tougher plastic or some kind of coating.........
