Hi I got sills for my Xsara Picasso from Lithuania.

But I´m in Norway. Probably not the best option for you. :-)

 

Nevertheless sills are the same for all model years. 

So brands apart you can´t go wrong.

BTW Citroen OEM are of the charts value wise.

Cheers for that, managed to get one on ebay, his feedback seemed ok. Just a little concerned by how far the rust may go. sofar it's about 6 inches in length and hopefully it will be an easy fix.

Well those 6 inches. Will turn into 12 the moment you start removing/cleaning the area in search of the impeccable metal.

My (limited) experience with rust as always been like that.

It´s always the double of what it looks from the outside. 

 

Suggestion treat&prep the area well before stuffing the new sill into place.

Zinc spray the entire back side of the sill and work area before welding. ;-)

It will be better in the long run.  

 

Disconnect the battery and good luck. :-)

Cheers
