Been looking at getting some floorboards for comfort. Wondering if there are any people would recommend?
Thanks

I purchased these for the passenger:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261413543190?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

And they dont fit. Well they do put they are pointed nearly vertically and they are nonadjustable so id strongly avoid these

Lol that was the first thing I did. They fit on the existing bracket which holds the peg, but when fitted they sit almost vertically and there is no way to change that other than removing one bolt holding the bracket so it can swivel, but that would compromise the security of them

I'm fairly sure these are meant to go directly onto the frame (the black bracket I mean). That's why they got one of the edges tapered so you can fold them up.

I have peg extenders that have the exact same mounting.
Give it a go bud.

Maybe im missing something obvious:





And this is how they'd look if fitted in the way the pegs fit (with that metal pole which goes through the middle with the C clip on the end


Maybe a really dumb moment on my part but i cant work it out. They should sit totally parallel with the ground shouldnt they?

i guess mistakes can be made,they don't come in any retail packaging so i guess they just build them in a factory and package them up so i can see how the mistake could happen.

They're being awkward about it too. Offered an £8 refund. I threatened negative feedback so they said they will send a right hand one but that has to come from the factory so will take a couple of weeks. They only reply once a day. Why can't they just take a right one from a pair in their warehouse, or just send a whole pair for wasting my time? Probably costs them £10 to make over there and that's bring generous.

I fear the eBay case will end before a resolution is made. What is the likely outcome?

That is unreal, I am shocked at their customer care. It seems as long as they have your cash, nothing else matters.

Left negative feedback. Always seems to give them a kick up the arse if you do that first then change it later when everything is resolved.
For £30 they arent bad though. (if the correct pair was sent). If you dont want to spend £160 on some highway hawk ones i would recommend them.
They're probably packing them in bad conditions without much sleep. But its the sellers attitude that deserves the negative.
