What have you done to your X Trail since owning it????

Since owning mine I've Done/ Added:
Nudge Bar
Side Running Bars
Chrome Mirrow Covers
Chrome Rear Light Surrounds
Fitted Chrome Grill
Rear Styling plate
Chrome Boot Loading strip
Changed the cloth seats to Black Leather Lecy ones and wired them in
Had the front 2 windows tinted and the rear to match in with the rest of the tints, including Top tint
Custom Mat's
HID 6000k lights (Best MOD)
K&N replacement filter
Nissan Clear Side Repeaters (looks so much cleaner)
Fitted Kenwood Head Unit, retaining stock steering wheel controls
2 10" subs in the boot
Added a Witter Tow Bar
Total Closure alarm with AutoStart fitted

Im really pleased with how the car now looks andthe Mod's ive done, other than fitting my tuning unit tomorrow i dont think theres alot more i could do to it

Hi Cliffy. Looks excellent - keen to hear about the next mod. Very jealous of your roof lights - swine! Don't suppose you want to swap them for some very nice standard roof rails do you? One owner, very clean. No? Oh well. Quick question for you; where did you get your 6000k replacement HID's from as thinking of doing same with mine? Did you install them yourself because the handbook tells us they produce about twenty six trillion volts at eighty thousand amps (I may be exagerating a smidge there) and this work should be carried out by dealer? Is it a simple swap over with just common sense of not touching the painful live one, or do you need to disconnect the battery/reset or similar? Do you know of anyone who's fitted spot lights straight onto bumper rather than on to ram raiders bar (sorry - no offence mate) Think the bumper may need a brace underneath as a bit bendy for lights maybe - advice greatly accepted.

Cheers, Vandy.

Having had the car for 13 months now, done 18,000 miles, I've added around £3,800 of fuel (worked out that the tax duty paid on the fuel is about £2,300) and over £800 on road tax!

Tax allowance for running a car through a business is 40p per mile for the first 10,000 and 25p per mile there-after. These allowance rates were the same 10 years ago when fuel was "slightly cheaper" so how impressed am I with the government? :twisted:

The roads around here look like a side street in Basra, pot holes that could devour a transit van and splits that make the Grand Canyon look like a hairline crack. How much of the road tax went towards the roads - about 30p I reckon? Had 200 yards of road works done near me the other week. Took about 4 days and they filled the "worst" holes then re-surfaced the road. Took around 300 blokes and 65 trucks of which 4 of the blokes actually did some work whilst the others stood around scratching their arses - including what must have been the official **** scratching supervisor as well. They all packed up their tools and off they went to their next disaster zone, obviously pleased with the complete mess they'd made.
I thought they'd be back to put on the finish coat of tarmac (what they've laid is a rough coat, all un-even and feels like driving over boulders) but no - that's the job finished apparently. ****** marvelous, so the holes have gone and we're left with a road that a Scorpion tank would have to think twice about before driving over it.

:twisted: from Dorset

A Scottish winter's worth of road cr*p
Many gallons of diesel
A gallon of 5w/40 synth
Oil filter
Air filter
Fuel filter
Removed rust and added copaslip to brake caliper pins
Got my trusty old JVC head unit standing by, just need to find the right adapter for the hole and wiring for the wheel remote.

I like to do dirty oily bits, not bling. No doubt the missus will give it a full valet before we haul the caravan away this year ....
