This is about the aluminum sill itself not the plastic sill cover; specifically the small area of aluminum that is visible where the plastic sill ends going aft at the top of the rail. What is the finish on this aluminum? Is it anodized, painted, or bare? Mine was scratched up by a screwdriver it seems while I was having the dealer (Park Place) install a new alcantara covered sill. They are saying that this area looks like it has previously been painted and asked if I had bought the car used. I did not; the car was new and had only been at the dealer (LOA) for one day since I had ordered it. So, the only way that area could've been repainted was at the factory when the car was being built or while at the port maybe. If it is supposed to be bare aluminum then something fishy happened to my car before I bought it. Anyway, the dealer is offering to repaint it to cover the damage they did but I just want to know what it is supposed to be.
