I have got Jaguar fitted side steps and to be honest I have turned them off, thought I would like them but to be honest they get in the way trying to get out of the vehicle.

I do use them to stand on to clean the roof though lol.

I saw the fitting instructions on topix for the official ones if you needed to compare

I looked at the same set on E bay but put in an offer of £240 which was accepted and heard today that they are in the hands of Fedex and will arrive this week. I am sure that they will be fine as coming from China they will be a well made copy of the genuine Jaguar items so the next challenge will be fitting them!

Had them on my RRS and after many many dirty backs of trousers swore never again. Honestly they are a total pain. They serve no purpose and actually make getting in and out more difficult. I could forgive the fact they ruin the lines of the car if they were actually functional. Cleaning the roof aside that is!

Car cleaning.....

I have a light, aluminium small step ladder for cleaning the roof of my car. Gift from Mother in Law :|

Seemed great until, one windy day, the aluminium step ladders were blown along like a paper bag and just missed my car by a whisker. I learned that I would in future always move the ladders well away from doing any harm when I had finished with them.

I share this so that none of us have this misery with our new F-Paces.

No charge!

That's typical of the price,too late now.Fitting should be interesting,have fitted a set with the pre cut sills to a RRS,so hopefully this will be as easy.Good luck

I think they really look well on the RRS but,more aggressive stance they give it I think.

Agreed. Mine was an original RRS (2006 FE) and I think they looked great - but they were a total pain. Always getting dirty trousers. They just about served a purpose as the sill height and seat height of the RRS was relatively high. In the FP I found them just plain-in-the-way on the two demonstrators I drove. You step up onto them and then back down into the car, bumping your head on the way on the door frame. Unnatural and unnecessary. IMO of course :lol:

Yes got them on,paid the dealer to do for collection,about £150 for this(discounted!)because it did look a bit complicated,and instructions fairly poor.
They are very good quality,felt good&heavy&solid,couldn't fault them.
I think they look fine on the car,they don't offend it,but don't really do a whole lot for it either,not sure if I would bother again
If you are going to buy of eBay,the price is £350,but another guy on here bid I think £250&got them for that

i would see if your dealer has a car fitted with them, i have the deployable Jaguar original set, yes they cost a lot of money and i wish i did not have them, i only ever get them out to clean the center of the roof, i would recommend you see a car as i find they just get in the way.
