Replica OEM Sport running boards

I have purchased genuine OEM sport running boards from Acura dealerships and installed with no problems. On ebay, there are some suppliers selling a "OEM replica" sport running board kit that references the Acura part number, for over $200 less.

Anybody purchased the OEM replica sport running boards and installed? If so, why not use them and save the $200?

There are a couple users who did, but I think most went with the real OEM ones. Heard the replicas have fitment and quality issues. Along the lines of bolts not lining up and rubber inserts falling out.

In this case I think most would advise going with real OEM running boards.

I personally have been waiting for awhile to purchase a set also. Just haven't pulled the trigger yet.

OEM Sport Running Boards Have Corrosion Issues

I've got OEM SRB on my 2009 MDX. Looks good new, but you'll eventually have white corrosion marks later. Make sure you have them replaced within the Warranty period. Acura Customer Relations was no help.
