Running Boards for a X5 e70 M-Sport anyone fitted them please?

Wed Nov 21, 2018 1:34 pm

I have a 58 plate X5 e70 M-Sport with the extra wider wheel arches etc..

Im looking to install running boards on the X5 because of younger kids & elderly mother.

But I'm getting conflicting advise on if its possible or not: -

I called BMW parts team and they said no Running boards / Side steps are available for your motor.

I have looked on Real OEM website and narrowed the car down (link below) and look what i find:- Running Boards: and it mentions "For vehicles with
M Sports package and M Exterior equipment"

So my questions is has anyone fitted Running Boards on a M-Sport X5 and if so was there any issues (cutting the arch trim etc.)?

And can i buy mud flaps to stop the wheels kicking up dirt and wrecking the sides panels?

any suggestions advise please?

Thanks

Can’t help with the running boards but you can get mudflaps especially for the Sport models, mine came fitted with them but took em off and sold them.
