Illuminated Kick Panels?

What's the illuminated kick panels? Anyone got a pic of this? I assume these are interior accent lighting by the speakers, but I'm having a hard time understanding what's so

Default Illuminated Kick Panels?

What's the illuminated kick panels? Anyone got a pic of this? I assume these are interior accent lighting by the speakers, but I'm having a hard time understanding what's so great about this.

Go to the official website and build a Z. When you get to options there's a list of various things including the kick plates. Hit the little question mark next to it and a pic pops up. Its a regular looking kick plate but the Z lights up.

Those would look pretty slick if I were trying to buy black ... but they don't really match white. Maybe if they offered 1 or 2 more colors.

Yep, I saw it yesterday, and it wasn't a big deal. It looks like orange-amber Z logo. It is plastic covered and looks not that luxurious as you can see on BMW's, Cooper's, etc...
and yes would be nice if it offered in other colors, maybe white LED?
I believe that you will see some of aftermarket options for the kick plate.

True.

The thing is that maybe you will find something interesting of that particular product, and yourself will believe that is a need, and you will get it.

Took a look at it... I'm not impressed. It's just a small light up Z.

They could have done so much more with it.

^^^ Agreed. I don't know what they're charging for. I you make my own for cheaper that'd look good.
