Since installation I've noticed that people are alot more careful when opening their doors so as not to smack into the Maniks for fear of dinging their doors ! Very effective and good looking to boot.DaleB said:The only advantage I have found is that it tends to keep people from parking too close. So far.........
So far just Zaino, usually Z2 with the rest of the car. Still considering a specific stainless steel polish. But they seem to hold up just fine.socalJD said:

DaleB, what do you use to keep your steps clean? We had a quick drizzle here is SoCal and now have muck and water spots on my Maniks
If you do searches under Manik you will find all that info. They are further from the body and only mount with 2 brackets, there is an additional support at the rear, compared with many more mounting points on the Acura steps, which are also closer to the body.paulp said:Dale,
It looks good! How many brackets does it come with? Is it rigid enough to stand on it?
Yes, they do stick out further than the factory steps, which psychologically seems to make some people more careful when parking beside you. But as I stated under another topic, I bought them for the looks, the price, and ease of installation. It's strictly a personal choice.mdxcoop said:Do the Manik chrome side steps stick out farther from the car than the Acura black side steps? I saw the Acura side steps on an MDX and looking at the profile, they were flush with the side of the door (just like the running boards). From your pictures, it looks like the Manik steps are not flush.
