While I know the new CX5 isnt a "truck" but I am thinking of adding running boards for cosmetics and functioning appeal... I cant locate a vendor that offers it (at least not yet). Any suggestions??? Thanks! (thought)

Mazda Canada has them but they are listed that you cant actually step on them as they are purely cosmetic!

My bad. Typo on the link.

I did get some feedback from the company. They indicated that the side steps are design to fit without additional drilling and can hold up to 200KG (approx 500lbs.). Delivered to a US address via FedEx for $303 total. I asked for a photo of the entire vehicle with the side steps installed, but they did not have any...

I have not taken the plunge yet. I would really like to see a better side-view photo of the entire vehicle with the running boards installed. My biggest concern would be that turn out to be too thick and look bulky on the vehicle. I really like the surface design of the running boards, though. From the info the manufacturer provided, it sounds like the install would be fairly simple and they would hold a good amount of weight.

I got the information I posted here by sending an e-mail to the address they have on the web site (sales@winsomechina.com). I am sure you could place an order from them through this e-mail. My guess would be that they would take payment via PayPal. Just send them an e-mail and ask. If you do decide to order a set, please let us know about it and post some pics after the install!

You can reach out to the company and ask for the details regarding shipping any payment. Just send an e-mail to sales@winsomechina.com and ask. If they take PayPal, all you have to do is send the funds to their register PayPal email address. You might want to ask about Customs duties, too. When I talked to them via email, they were very helpful. $303 shipped to your door seems like a good price. I sent them another email to see if we can get some additional photos. I will post what I find out.

That blows! When I exchanged e-mails with the company, I specifically asked about the instructions and they said they were included in the package. You might want to reach out to them to see if they can send you an electronic copy via e-mail. They did say that everything goes into pre-drilled/existing holes...

Wow! With all that you went through, I think they look pretty damn good! Did any of the holes line up at all? Did you have to do any drilling?

Congrats!

Thanx...no drilling required at all..holes does lines up good, the only tough part is the rear car existing hole to put what they called is T-shape screw in...I use pretty thick steel wire tied to the screw and pushed it in thru bigger hole and came out thru smaller hole where u attach to the bracket...other than that it was pretty easy process...I don't understand what's wrong with auto mechanic...he suggested me it's not lining up and told me to sell it on eBay....so, I just stop by his shop and he was pretty impressed with my handy work....guess I don't have to sell it on eBay.....

those running boards look nice and a clean look too. do you find them sturdy enough to stand on -like during washing the roof of vehicle or maybe adjusting a roof rack?

Yuup,,they were very sturdy,just tried this morning while car wash....seller mentioned capacity to 500Lbs ..so, it works for me....

I would say,,,,Maybe 3 inches...my guess by looking coz I was underneath the car whole time while installing every brackets and even putting on running board itself...never even lifting the car whole time of installation...

I guess the problem could be that he's a mechanic and not an auto body repair man which is why he was having problems.

Yes, fitted some about a year ago, Mazda UK used to sell them as an accessory but no longer. There are loads of aftermarket ones on the net but many foul the jacking points whereas these don't.

I'd post photos but can't work out how to do that...

Hey guys, as Tsedhun69, knows it took me 3 years for me to find someone to put on my running boards from winsomechina, since I am not handy at all when it comes to cars. If you are NOT going to do it yourself, here is my suggestion. Find a Custom Car shop to put them on. I went to several body shops, mechanics and no one would touch them since there are no instructions on installation and they are made in China. When I found this guy who customizes cars, he had no problems installing them using all the right tools and a lift; and only took 1 1/2 hours. They are on firm, tight and look great. I am totally pleased with them, although I would have like to had them installed sooner it was worth the wait.
