Ive been through all of this and NO it cant be done because of the new body kit shape. So you would be going out on a limb if you tried to mod the car from there. It would affect you warranty too.

Trust me its no big deal not to have them. Atleat the sports pack is colour coded and not matt finish like the running boards would be.

I agree with the the comments above.
IMO, the running board offers very little help in getting in/out of the car (probably less than what you'd hope for even for a 3 yr old kit). The running board is the same height as the top of the side skirts, and is only slightly lower than the bottom of the door frame... by roughly 1-2 inches.

Let me know if you want to see some close up photos, I can try to take a few over the weekend.


Here's the Photo Album of my (sold) X3; Album of my (newish) X5 is on the way!

Thanks for all your help guys. I will chat with the little lady and see what she wants to do. The boards are more important to her than the kit......
