Hey all, thought it was about time I posted up the build of my Xtrail.

Good Points
Very capable vehicle takes me to alot of places people think it wont go.
Cheap vehicle to run

Bad Points
Could do with a few more areas for accessories to be fitted

What mods have you done?
Dark Window Tints - Rear Parking Sensors
TJM Seatcovers - Full Underbody Protection from Xtrail Shop
ECB Bigtube Bullbar with Fog lights
20 Inch LED Lightbar - Rhino Rack Roof Bars
Maxxis Bravo 771 A/T Tyres

What mods are on the list to do?
Pretty much got the car to where id like it, although some things that would make it better but ill probably never do are, suspension lift, roof rack, snorkel, some more lighting up front, rear wheel carrier and upgrade rear reversing / working / camp lighting.

Why did you buy this vehicle?
I bought this vehicle new as we wanted a car that wasn't going to break down and liked that it came with 3 yrs warranty 3 yrs road side assist.

Originally the vehicle was bought for camping trips down gravel tracks but the more and more I drove the vehicle the more I found out just how capable this vehicle actually is.

How often do you go offroad?
2 weekends each month and every public holiday or long weekends we get away camping.

Few photos:

How it all started, shiny and new

Re:


Bit of an update on my Xtrail, i decided id had enough of the standard reversing lights and upgraded them to two 16cm LED lightbars, such a difference with these, and i can also use them to light up the ground when arriving at camp in the dark allowing better visibility for tent setup.

Re:


Cool. I see no brake lights with the reverse LEDs working, so do you have them wired to a separate switch that turns them on independently of the reverse gear?

Please don't tell me you're relying on the handbrake to do the job to keep the car in gear emoticon

No mine is manual so I left it in reverse with just the battery switched on
