Does anyone know if there are OEM or after market kits for illuminted running boards for the XC90. I think these would be a good safety feature.

I am thinking if the boards are illuminated they would lessen the chance of miss stepping/slipping. I don't think the lights under the mirrors would illuminate the running boards if the front doors are opened when passengers are exiting the vehicle.

I just tried it on our T6 demo, in the dark. Illuminated the mirror lights and also tried to exit from the car while looking down. Exiting from the rear doors isn't too bad, exiting from the front and looking down...it is a bit darker. I don't think that I would miss them if I were looking where my feet were going but I do see your point.<p>Yannis

Yannis: There are times when I look where my feet are stepping, but I still end up on my rear end.!
