Recommendations for side steps installer in Manchester

I have just purchased some side steps for my L494 Range Rover Sport. Would anybody have recommendations for a competent workshop to install them for me in Manchester?

Thanks MY16 (65) RRS, HSE, White, 21" 507s, Pan/Black Roof, 7 Seats, Ebony/Cirrus, Surround Cams, Fully Color Coded

Land Ranger in Stockport did mine, but they are painful to book in with, expect a 2-3 week wait. Get a 2005-2009 RRS (FAH500210) sat nav/dash mat here - the one that wasn't there when you bought the car.

Land Ranger can't do it for over a month. I must have phoned nearly 20 garages, workshops, wrapping, and modification companies and nobody seems to want to do it.

Am I missing something here? Considering just returning the side steps now. I thought it was just a case of screwing some bolts down? MY16 (65) RRS, HSE, White, 21" 507s, Pan/Black Roof, 7 Seats, Ebony/Cirrus, Surround Cams, Fully Color Coded

It can be time intensive, not always quick if you have mud flaps fitted, but if you are supplying the parts yourself, then it does loose them a lot of money, LR dealerships will often only supply and fit genuine LR steps so you are then looking around £500 or £750 for electric ones. Censored

Independents say at £70 hour + VAT, which is cheap, could still cost you up to £210+. Which allows 3 hours. Whistle
Listed on eBay are suppliers that will supply & fit while you wait (pre book) for £90-£120 + cost of steps.

It took me a few hours to fit on previous model, and depends if it comes with the separate sill cut out.
Beware many "copies" cannot handle the persons weight of the genuine LR ones (25 Stone) many can't tell you but most are up to 15 stone. John

I did mine myself with help from my son, took a couple of hours.
I had the pre-cut cills as part of the kit which saved time. MY13.5 Autobiography, Santorini Black, Privacy Glass.

Steps on the old model are a piece of cake, i fit them in an hour no problem.

Steps on the new models are a Censored I wasn't happy at all, the holes in the floor where the steps bolt on (non electric type) aren't threaded and after breaking 4 taps trying the put a thread in them i gathered they must be made of superstrongatanium metal. So I'm not surprised places don't want to do them.

I thought the electrically deployable ones were about £3k?

Normally yes, but electrical ones recently heavily discounted, our sponsor Duckworth Parts has had them on special to, I don't think the discounted ones are for the MK2 just noticed by OP, so indeed small mortgage required. Whistle John
