Hate my running boards... HELP ME!!!

I just picked up my 2012 X5 Diesel and a week later made an appointment to have my factory running boards removed for the basic rocker panel. I test drove one without the boards and never had a problem... now that i ordered one with them... and love the look... I realize that living in Buffalo and being 6 foot 3 inches tall... my leg pant hits the board everytime and when their is snow and salt... my suit pants, or jeans, or whatever im wearing get an awful line of salt or dirt on them... I must not be the only person to experience this. Am i nuts to remove the boards? Any one know of any options to the basic rocker panel. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks~

Since you posted in the F07 (GT) section of the forums, I'm not sure you'll get much sympathy or help!
