Any E92 M3 illuminated door sills out there?

I noticed that BMW only offers an illuminated door sill option with the BMW logo for the M3. Is there one with the ///M3 logo? I'm surprised no one brought this up before. is it no longer popular ;-)?

I honestly would just want one with illuminated strips... something to keep passengers from dragging their feet when getting in and out of the car.

I have these installed. Bought them used for short money. I wasn't sure I'd like them, but they're some of the best cosmetic upgrades I've made to my 335. But I can see how you M3 guys might want to stick to the ///Mblem.

Who cares! OEM or not, they're really hot!

Come on forum vendors, someone make these and charge us all ridiculous money, M tax included, so that we can all buy them and add the mod to our sigs!
