Anybody know where a clear hood protector like this can be bought in Canada?

Are the Canadian Nissan dealers able to get them?

What about those stick on clear thin film protectors that are like a second skin? I would not mind having that applied to the front hood edge. Would anybody know what that is called or who would have that in Canada?

Thanks!

Nissan dealers should have them.. I just picked up my new LE last night (Brampton, ON), and that was one of the accessories I ordered.. the nissan logo is on the bottow right though.. and small and embossed.. looks nice.. really blends with my black paint.. almost don;t see it.. just see the nice curves

Thanks Dig, I'll ask my dealer when I pick up my Silver LE.. hopefully end of next week. I would like a clear one.

How much did you pay for your is you don't mind me asking?

I'm still also interested in the clear skin protector.

I think it was like $120 installed (also had a 15% all accessories coupon from the National Auto Show) - make sure you ask your dealer about that!!! If they tell you they will give your the discount - but you need the coupon (good til Mar31/05) PM me, and I can mail you one. I grabbed a few extra at the autoshow.

You can install it yourself, it's really easy. I paid about $70 for mine with 10% discount. It's little wider than the one on the photo.

Thanks Aussietrail, I'll try passing that one to the dealer in case they say it's not available.


Thanks Mike, is the one you mention a factory unit? I like the one pictured above the best of the units I have seen.

ViperZ,

There is another type of this Bonnet Protector on the market (not sure if it genuine nissan or not), but I've seen one selling in New Zealand for 64 EURO.

Here is a pic of it:

Anybody Willing?

My Nissan Dealer looked into getting the bug deflector for me, however stated it was not available in Canada. They then inquired to Nissan Japan, and was fianlly told that it was not tested for use in Canada, as such, they can't import it at this time...

Would anybody that can get the unit up top in clear want to look into purchasing a clear one for me? I can send the money via paypal, money order, which ever way would work best.

Let me know

Thanks

:cool:

Australian Dealer

Hi Viper,

This nissan dealer in Australia will ship one for you.

http://www.parrynissan.com.au/Accessories/xtrail.htm

I have referred to him an xtrailer from Sweden before who also wanted the bonnet protector and they shipped one for him.

They charged him $85AUD (excluding shipping)

Drop them an email and take it from there.

So ViperZ - its not the factory one that you are looking for (the smoked one)? I have the same one that mike dockal has (in the previous pic post). I think it was $125 from the dealer. Its weird how your dealer is telling you that they can't get it.. almost like my dealer had never heard of the rear mat that you have - and that's posted on the Nissan site.. I think the Nissan parts guys are morons.

If you want the same one in the pics posted by mike dockal - PM me and I can ship one to you from Toronto. I still have a few 15% off coupons that I can use.

DO...

Thanks for the link Jalal, I'll send him a e-mail :thumbup:


DigitalO, thanks for all your help, you're the best :thumbup: The one I'm looking for is the short abreviated one.



I read somewhere else that it's available in Clear.

My Nissan dealer can get the one like Mike posted, however they can't get the one I want above. It must be very hard on the Canadian dealers right now as there becomes more X-Trail savvy consumers (like us), that talk on these boards, learning from our other X-Trail brothers what has been available in the market for a few years now.

I'm going to use those coupons you sent for the roof accessory rack kit :cheers:

No probs.. How much do the roof rack kit and cross bars cost? I'm going to go by Rack Attack tomorrow to check out the Thule ones and trade in my old Yakima car bike rack - just wonder if I should get the Nissan ones instead..

I was quoted $249 + GST/PST The coupon will make it even :)

I too have a Yakima rack with Rocket Box and Ski carrier for my Honda Accord. The Dealer indicated the rack has channels so it may be possible to retrofit the Yak accessories to it.

I had contacted Yakima regarding a tower fit for the X-Trail that would use my Yaks bars, however was told that because the XT is not available in the USA, they have not had a chance to test fit or design for it.

Let me know what you come up with Dig, as I'm curious to know. I like the Aero looks of the factory unit



Although it may not be as strong as the round Yakima bars :rolleyes:


Jalal, thanks for that great lead :thumbup: I emailed Jon at Parry Nissan, and he is dispatching a Clear one to me today :cheers:
