New from Sunshine Coast.


G'day everyone,
I'm Desmond and this is my wife Beverley. We bought our 2002 X-trail ST.in April 2003.Took it for a test drive,loved it, bought it.We both love camping and go up to Noosa north shore,Double island point as often as we can.I've done a few mods: tint,K&N filter,Hi-clone,trans cooler,Nissan tow bar,Maxe- Nudge bar(stainless),AMG alloys with Cooper 235/60/16 lifeliners,chemical & electronic rust proof.I have just acquired a set of Nissan factory alloys off a 200SX with Bridgestone 215/70/16 A/T's fitted.Last week
we did tour#11, Conondales,out of Dirty Weekends in S.E.Queensland 4WD guide book,8 water crossings steeeep descents and dusty corrugated roads,it was great.I think this forum is very helpfull, keep up the good work look forward to chatting.
           Always looking Dez.

Hi Dez, Welcome to our forum and am happy you made it emoticon

Interesting mods you got there mate and I'm particularly interested to see someone else with the Maxe nudge bar (beside me) as I've been driving around nearly 3 years and I have not seen a single xtrail fitted with it yet.

Are you happy with it and have you got any spotties fitted to it?

There is an existing thread that discussed the hi-clones and it would be good if you can contribute to it for the benefit of other members HERE it is.

What is the transmission cooler mod?

Please post pics of your exy if you have any.

Enjoy your stay here and give us (The Admin Team) a yell if you need any help with something.

G'day Jalal,
Yes, i'm happy with the Maxe-bar ,it always stays shiny,like CHROME,i haven't any spotties as i haven't had the need yet.Interesting to see what the other guys have to say about Hi-clone,it looks like i might have to get another one.
I would really like to add photo's but i'm not very computer literate,and could use some help.
Always looking Dez. =D
P.S.The transmission cooler is a radiator for your automatic,generally used for towing or heavy going ie: soft sand.As we know the Xe turns to 2WD from LOCK when trans gets hot ie;bogged,not ideal so i've put a couple of fans on it that i can turn on when i want as well. =D

Hi Dez,

HERE is how you can add photos to a post.

Also, your avatar (i.e. the pic under your username in the profile) seems to have a broken link, so you may want to host the image/pic you have selected to be your avatar to be hosted on ImageShack as well.

Yeah, MAXE does shine emoticon

Hi Dez and welcome to the forums...

It's good to see more and more owners willing to take their X-Trail offroad like they're intended to be used!

Any reports on the Coopers? I haven't heard of their "Lifeliner" models - maybe I should look harder at their website - are they a light-truck tyre or an all-terrain tyre?

 =D G'day Rich,
The coopers i've had on for about 18mths or so and i got them from Bob Jane Caloundra and they're a highway tyre that i find really good on the sand,i also found to be quite acceptable on dry n.p.roads. =D
I just had a look at your xe and that's one set of lights you've got there,do they melt the snow.lol and speaking of dirty,you seemed to have done a pretty good job.
   Always looking Dez. =D

I'll hopefully get the opportunity to find out in two weekend's time when we go to Oberon - I've been told that a few weekend's ago there was 20cm of snow on the roads @ Black Springs... Definitely looking forward to that weekend, but if today's weather is anything to go by (24 degrees in Sydney!) I don't like my chances of there being any snow. Will certainly keep an eye on the weather forecast for that weekend... If it's predicted to be cold in Sydney then it's almost guaranteed to be even colder on the other side of the Blue Mountains!
