Sills protection

Has anybody a magic solution to protect the sills against scratching? Despite a considerable amount of effort my passengers are very difficult to educate.

You could try to clear wrap it

I had mine clear wrapped. I will post some photos when I clean her this weekend

Basically they couldn't wrap the textured plastic bit, as I'm told wrap wouldn't adhere.

So the i8 sill and the outer sill have all being wrapped

The i8 sill insert looks so much better in gloss

Took delivery of my car couple weeks ago and as the seats already had been re-done with alcantara inserts, decided to do the door sills too.
