The bits are coming!!! Not sure if anyone reads 4WD Monthly but July's edition (I know its still may)has a write up about extra bits for xtrails. Although the article is very much a repeat of one in 4x4 Australia a few months back. The article talks about fitting a Howling Moon Rooftop tank, storage drawers and water tank. Although there is no mention of how you would get to your spare tyre.
The new and interesting things are:
1. Long range Automotive Aux 50L fuel tank for about $1500. A little pricy - my aux tank for the GQ is $1250, but I suppose its a supply and demand thing.
2. Piranha Dual battery kit, using a 8 inch battery tray. The Piranha battery is only 40AH, You could pick up a 50 AH battery from Battery World which can give you an extra few hours for the fridge. (my patrol is a unique model in that you can only install a 8 inch tray as well (unlike the normal 12) and after heaps of research the best we can find is a 50AH. Anyway the kit installed is about $850.
These are good signs that there is a developing aftermarket.

Re: The bits are coming!!! Good news that companies are producing gear for the X-Trail...
I popped into ARB City (Tempe) last week and they showed me a new nudge bar for the X-Trail... When I was looking a few months back, they hadn't released it, but now it's out and it doesn't look too bad at all.
