I had these for over two weeks and finally decided to have a local authorized Romik installer put them on. Glad I did as it took them 2 hours (labor book rate was 1-1/2 hours). They look very sharp and dressy on the car and serve their purpose. There are two areas needing improvement. To function better they could be a bit wider. Also, the mounting brackets are too far apart and the step flexes when stepped on.
Only lasted 2 months
I bought a BMW X5 in March and soon realized that I needed running boards. My husband and son installed them. I didn't like them from the start. They are very low to the ground. I had to be super duper careful going over speed bumps as they would often scratch. Then one day the bolt on the front of one broke. I didn't replace it because I dislike them so much. I will go to BMW the next time to get something that works better on my vehicle.
