I'm posting this question because I just added factory OEM lighted front door sills and they look awesome with the aqua blue light! The parts cost $210 on EBay and another $186 for dealer installation. They look really cool but I've got to say these were standard on my Lincoln MKC.

Any opinions on this? Thanks, Chris

Pictures? I have the flood light emblem that broadcasts on the ground when the door is opened. Would it be too much lighting when combined?

I wish the Envision had its own symbol to represent it sort of like what Japanese brands did more of in the 90's because having that on this sill would be nice.

I can understand Buick leaving some things out to keep pricing low, but I do sometimes wonder about what we lose in exchange. Like the better looking sill plates or cars that won't wobble in turns...The Envision is certainly a nice car and definitely near luxury IMO, but it could be better.

Or you could pay $70,000 and get those features like lighted passenger door sills and cargo sill along with door handles that recess into the door on a Jaguar Velor. The 2.0T version of the Jaguar is not as atheltic as the Envision 2.0T.

Too bad that Buick is at a point where they might need to include more features at a loss to their bottom line just to win over more loyal customers.

If you don't mind shopping prices there has been Premium l's for around $30K. That is about $14,000 off MSRP and about $14,000 less than a Lexus NX having more standard features on the Buick.

I know I'm Reviving an old thread, but tell me more about these logo puddle lights please. I know the Lincoln comes with them, is this something you added or is this a premium 2 option?

First and foremost it took me 2 weeks just to get used to and over the sticker on the car after I saw it at the dealership. $45K+ for the Premium I is the most I have spent on a car ever. I think back to my Mustang II I had that cost 4,852 but that was some time ago.

Our impression of the vehicle is it is very premium in the look, touch and feel as well as the driving experience. The ride is smooth and quiet, the car is extremely solid. The styling in and out is contemporary and clean with little retro touches here or there (the clock, some buttons). I feel like I am driving a rock literally, no rattles, very composed, doors clunk with a close and everything just feels stepped up. Where the Equinox was nice, leather, drove well, lots of power, v6, it still was less refined and in comparison was spartan for the top of the line of that model. So I would yes it is a luxury vehicle but perhaps less so than a Cadillac, Lexus or Infinity and at a better price point with more value built in. Although, my friend Jack likes our Envision better than his new Lexus SUV and he didn't even think of Buick. Too bad the cars are equivalent and he would have saved $20K.

TSS-Do Ebay search for Buick Envision puddle lights ~$15.
Gotcha. I thought you were referring to a GM accessory. I'll check it out, but even though I use eBay, probably every other day, I'm leery of purchasing bulbs on eBay because of prior negative experiences with respect to longevity. I'll take a look though. Thank you.

YMMV, but I like my Buick logo puddles just fine. Plug and play, so far so good after 14 months. If they quit tomorrow, I'll just put the originals back in and move on.

Thank you! I went ahead and ordered them. It was worth a $16 gamble to me. LOL. Probably a safer gamble than the console tray I ordered from China. And that actually arrived, arrived within a reasonable amount of time, and fits perfectly. I figured that was a Gamble from the start as to whether I would get it and whether it would fit and I won on that one
