Looking at getting some side steps for the Evoque.

mainly to help the kids clamber in and out rather than climb over thedoor edge strip and rubbers etc and also to help when washing it ?

also be useful when the bars and roof box are on...

so there’s a raft on eBay ranging from £100-200.

Any to particularly avoid? Anyone recommend any?

Ah ok! Best to avoid them all and go with a someone like a recognised aftermarket parts place then?
assume no one has taken a punt on some then?
According to eBay there’s hundreds sold of each - someone must be buying them all!

I didn’t mean to mislead you. There might well be perfectly (well?) good sidesteps available on EBay, it’s just that since joining this forum recently, I get the impression that the consensus is that sidesteps on the Evoque are frowned upon in general.?

Don't listen to the critics! If you like 'em, you like 'em and nothing should change your mind about getting side steps. They can be a Marmite accessory but personally I like the look and there is an abundant choice on line - some fit better than others though (see my arrrgh thread ;) ) but DIY is perfectly feasible if you can handle a spanner and a few swear words. Make sure you get the right model version - the Dynamic one in your link might not fit Pure / Prestige models as the brackets are very different

I’m going to get some, just want some recommendations as to which fit best. I’m not fussed if it’s not to everyone’s taste, it’s more a practical thing for the kids rather than an aesthetic accessory! Theres a few websites offering returns so will just get some and if they don’t fit well, back they go (when this Coronavirus situation disappears!)

You just joined Donna's House party? how did you get an invite to that then-we've been freinds for ages and I never even get to drink from her buckfast bottle!!!

Donna, all depends on the height of the heels!
