The thing I don’t like about the running boards is they are fitted by the dealer and not at the factory. You have to cut spaces in the underside plastic protectors to make them fit. Also how they slot and bolt into the bodywork I’d be worried about rust and fit.
But I do like the look of them.

Agreed. The whole installation design feels like an afterthought. There should be pre-cut holes for attachment with plugs fitted by default. And at the price charged, you’d think more effort would be put into making sure they’re reversible without damage to the vehicle. But then the entire car industry is based purely on greed so I guess we can’t really expect much.
