Running boards are the oldest type of cabin ingress and egress assistance, and were standard equipment on all early autos. With these handy steps, you'll kill two birds with one stone: make it easy to get in and out of your vehicle and add an extra touch of uniqueness to it.

Romik® is one of the brands, that never stops surprising their customers. Direct from the Romik European labs comes a new style of Running Board that has been tested for durability and strength. Their newest offering the RAL Running Board will set your 2014 VW Touareg apart from the rest. Made from extruded aluminum and top off with a skid resistant top. The RAL series is luxury at its best. Available in silver or black finishes. The Black RAL-B is complemented by black end caps and grip assurance technology.

If you have an R-line it is very doubtful these will fit as standard. I helped fit a pair on a fellow board members and you need to utilise tbolts inserted into locations that require cover panels to be removed modificatins made a refitted not a simple fitting.

Same on the T1, I have a set of boards on my Treg for my wife, she has a lot of difficulty climbing in and out of the car. So with the Air shocks and the boards I got you can see the missus here holding one of my bikes.

Guys,unfortunately the manufacturer did not provide pictures of the running boards installed on the VW Touareg yet. We will update you with some pictures as soon as we get them from Romik or our customers. As for the installation, detailed instructions comes with the running boards. You can check this installation video for Honda Pilot, that shows you the whole process: https://www.youtube....h?v=5YQCwsW_fNE

So as I have said dependant upon model their is a likely need for modification of cover panels and possibly invalidating warranty.

Buy the things, get them sent from the US, pay UK customs duty, open the box and that's the first time you see the fitting instructions.

Yup, that's a brilliant USP.

I can concur that the fitting instructions are a single sheet of A4, detailing what's in the box, two sets of support bars one set label'd Front left, middle left and rear left. the others clearly don't need labelling, the support "bolt" are just a piece of flat bar with a welded on bolt at right angels which fits inside a hole in the floor underneath the car, the plastic cover (cheap plastic too and becomes brittle after a few years and breaks easy) needs to be cut which in turn allows the stupid thing to hang down a bit; go off road and you will loose it ( I was thinking about making new ones out of aluminium sheet).

But once on they dpo do what they say on the tin (box) they do help you get in easier if you don't have air shocks. But for my wife it makes it even easier for her with her bad legs. So I am not dissing them they look very nice, but if you intend to go off road they wont help with ground clearance. Not the Boards but the fixing brackets will project below the body work underneath. Worth the money, well for a tart up yes, does it make the Treg look tougher, er no, useful yes to a point. Easy to remove, took an hour and a half to get them on, and less than thirty minutes to get them off. So those weekends in the woods, mud and sh**, are still on the cards, but they will help to get in and out of the car, if you are small or infirm.

I like mine.;) go figure.....

Fitting varies , Rline and altitude are more problematic due to bodywork changes
