Re: Nudge Bars & Bullbars for the new X-Trail T31


Do nudge bars require trimming of the bumper or drilling to fit? Are their any budget nudge bars (below 500) that are air bag certified?

thanks

Re: Nudge Bars & Bullbars for the new X-Trail T31


The majority of the nudge bars require minor trimming and drilling to fit the front chassis. The ECB is one of them and it is completely certified for airbag compliance.

None of the budget nudgebars you see on eBay or other auction sites are airbag compliant am afraid, so be very careful what you buy.

Re:


The only trimming you have to do for the ECB bar is behind the bumper bar to a piece of plastic that sits near a mounting point.
Outside the car doesn't get touched.

Re:


I'm curious to know how hard it would be to install the Nissan OEM one. There's a few on ebay from Nissan dealers in Vic for $750-$800. I do like the look of the OEM nudge bars, but I feel the ECB may be a bit thicker and give more protection to the radiator.

If too hard - wonder what $$$ it would cost to get it fitted and where... wouldn't think more than $200 to get the OEM fitted somewhere, not at a dealership.

Your feeling is 100% correct, as there is nothing behind the black plastic bits of the factory nudge bar in terms of prection, it's just hallow and provides no protection to the bumper/radiator at all.

Re:


They'd be pretty easy to install Michael as long as you have the correct template and instructions.
I'd go the ECB though, there's a few different styles to choose from.

Re:


hi there guys....

just became a new member and didn't want to read through 27 pages.

are their any smartbars or bullbars for the x-trail t31.
has to be airbag compliant.

all searching has turned up is the nudgebars - and previously owning a holden commodore with a smartbar - you can image my surprise.

Read this thread all the way through and there is some info on bull bars here. The most popular seems to be ECB.

i like the one at the bottom - the top one looks a bit funny, assuming there are no problems that members have found.
sending an email to them now to ask about it
