Can running boards be removed?

Can the aluminum running boards be removed without a trace, or looking like something was removed?

Yes the can be removed, but since BMW running board and sills are one unit your vehicle will look like itís missing side sills.

If you want to remove the factory running boards, you'll need to order and install the standard sills, support sills and associated installation parts:
