Difference between FWD and AWD

Hi guys,

Turns out that D2 and HOTBITS make coilovers for the X-Trail but they state that their coilovers are for the AWD X-Trail, while my Indonesian version X-Trail is FWD.

Would this cause an installation/fitment problems? It shouldn't matter right? Let me know.

From what I saw in the Soth African parts catalog (and around the net) the spring/shock assemblies in FWD and AWD gasoline X-Trails are the same. The diesels do appear to have different springs for the added weight of the six speed manual and diesel engine.

Perfect! That's exactly the info of what I am looking for. Anyway, in case anyone cares, D2 (Taiwan) and Hotbits (Malaysia) make coilovers for the X-trail. The D2 one has gotten bad reviews from other folks who have purchased them for their cars (not necessarily Xtrail owners), but the Hotbits one have gotten rave reviews (there are plenty of high perf. cars like the Skyline in Malaysia racing around with the hotbits stuff)....

Thanks!

IC, thanks.
So, no impact on the fuel consumption. I never believed that this will work, but a more stable voltage, yes that is ok.
