Hi All,

After some advice, has anyone brought a set of side bars from Direct 4x4, I am looking at a set of bars(rather than traditional steps design)

Any issues fitting or quality etc?

Cheers

I had some side steps for a Freelander once from this company. I won't be buying from them again.
The steps themselves weren't too bad once they were adjusted correctly, but the fixing kit was shocking.

I bought side steps, took garage 2 hours to fit due to badly made brackets, the bolts after a few weeks were corroded so I treated them and the brackets with waxoyl I got mine from 4x4 styling cant really recommend them unless your a very capable DIY mechanic...

I've read a few threads on here about side steps and side bars, I'm looking for a set of side bars without the step as in Vulcan's photo above for a 2012 (61 reg) Antara. I can't find any listed for it anywhere on ebay or google for this one even though they are listed for the Captiva and the earlier Antara as well as the Vivaro. I can only assume there must be a difference under the car between the earlier and later models whichmust affect the fittings. Can anyone suggesta supplier?

These are the ones I fitted from direct 4x4 just had to remove plastic bungs from chassis loose fit all the fixing bolts and tighten once aligned to bodywork took about an hour to fit. I've had them 2 years and just starting to show some small rust spots but once cleaned spots disappear if I looked after them better I've only cleaned when cleaning motor with a quick wipe dry
Recommend them good product for the price just noticed these are no longer available from direct 4x4

Thanks for the link, they're just what I want. I've contacted Direct 4X4, they say they're hoping to stock them again but probably be end of March, so until then I'll keep looking,
