Side step advice please

17 plate 5 door evoque with tech pack
Hi with my first post
I want to fit some side steps to my new evoque
Having found a u tube video of the fitting it seems as if you have to move some trim to fit them but I am unsure whether the video is showing non genuine side steps
Has anyone any experience of fitting either genuine or non genuine side steps
Any recommendations of where to purchase if there are decent non genuine ones out there that are easy to fit?
Thanks
David

RE: Side step advice please

Hi Yes genuine ones and some non genuine ones have brackets fitted under the lower trim. You also need a tool to fit the RivNuts as the mounting points are just holes from factory.

I have ones that bolt underneath using brackets to the chassis points which I fitted myself. If it comes with U shaped brackets it's probably like mine. If they look more like a Box section they will be like the genuine ones.

Thankyou
Do you have any photos of the fitting underneath

There's a previous thread here where you can see images of the ones I fitted to my dymamic 5 door.
