1) These are the GM factory accessory MSG'sinstaller said:WVUGUY,
Were those original Buick guards?
Self, dealer, or factory installed?
Are you happy with the fit and function of them?
I am thinking about ordering a 2010 jewel red CXL2 and think I would like them rather than the side boards.
It's amazing how accurately that describes yours truly. Let's see, I'm definitely an older guy (52).....drive an Enclave PRECISELY like the one listed.....reside in Ohio (SW as opposed to NE).....and take two spaces for vehicle preservation reasons whenever possible (though ALWAYS on the lot fringe, absolutely NEVER anywhere near the close-in spaces). What I don't do is visit The Fresh Market every weekend.....though I do go there on occasion.2MuchCoffee said:Let me add that a local WDT w/Chromes, Venture Shield and Molded SG's parks near me almost every weekend at the Fresh Market and the MSG's make a subtle but dramatic statement that this is a classy vehicle, just like wvguy's photo. :notworthy: (I've never spoken to the older guy who drives it - older than me, so he's pretty old - but he sure has a way of angle parking in two spaces to protect his investment. In any event, it's a beauty.) :angel:
Oh, I'm very well aware that the running boards.....like splash guards and optional wheels and the after market grills, etc.....aren't for everyone. Some consider them absolutely mandatory in assisting access for small kids and the elderly, while others think they're good for little more than dirtying one's pant leg. While I really like the way they look.....and think they finish the side profile beautifully.....I know for a fact I'd be one of those complaining about the dirty pants, because I'd absolutely NEVER use them for assistance (unless they helped me span a puddle next to the car).installer said:Don't get me wrong: I really like the way the running boards look, but I tried getting in and out of one with that had them installed and with out:
Without - no problem to get in or out.
With - sort of had to step over them further. Stepping on them was cumbersom. Gettin out (as many have posted) it seems the back and side of your leggs rub against them. Not good if wet, muddy, dusty or slushy out side.
But, I do like the way they look.
I thought the splash guards may keep the sides a bit cleaner and they still look good.
