Yes I have them, I ordered them off of Aliexpress.com, I included a link to the ad and a picture.

The ad says 2012-2013 models but they are exactly the same as my OEM ones for my 2007.

They were fairly easy, I just taped into the rear door light for power as they come on when any door is open.

Thanks, exactly where did you tie into the wiring? What color wires? Were the connections long enough from the sill plates? Thanks

I can't remember exact details, but if you do a search here you'll find additional info on installing the sill plates. Some discussion has gone on in the past.

I tied into the two wires that come from the door light I'm not exactly sure what colour they were, and I'm pretty sure I added a bit of wire for length.
