Hi all, apologies if this has been done before but I'm thinking of fitting some side steps/running boards to the old girl and was just wondering if anyone had any thoughts or advice as to the best ones. Don't want to pay a fortune or spend all day modifying them to fit. Seen some that look decent on fleabay, about 160-200 seems about right.
Any ideas peeps?



Cheers


Tony

hi unclefunk. I bought a set of side steps Antara 'Freedom' 210.00 on line. There are different pattern ones to choose from. They arrived within the week and I fitted them in an hour.

Bought these last week just need to fit them. They have a "buy it now or best offer" so I offered 130 and got them. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SB330SS-VAUXHALL-ANTARA-2013-STAINLESS-STEEL-SIDE-STEPS-EASY-NON-DRILL-FITMENT-/370881002257?fits=Model%3AAntara&hash=item565a3afb 11:m:m9AoB_Zfl6ZMnPZgA2LkOBQ

Don't fancy these things at all. They're maybe OK for a youngster to get in and out but I've never found any (flat or round) that I could safely use although might be useful for washing the car.

I use a covered indoor car park and they have concrete extensions at each up and down ramp. It's tight enough as it is, I think these side steps would catch.
