I have stanless steel side steps fitted to mine, but not from Canada. Mine are manufactured in South Africa by Maxealsterac said:I contacted the company and they are a Canadian based company in BC. They gave me the number to a distributor in Mississauga, Ontario. They quoted me a price of $595 CDN (uninstalled) for the Stainless Steel model.
Has anyone installed one yet?
Sorry mate, beside the pic in that web site, I can't tell you much, but they look heavier than my stainless steel steps, which could be an issue.Nosrac said:Hey, any idea with the quality on this one? I don't really feel for the lights but black looks decent in the pictures.

Does anyone have a platinum X-Trail with the step bars installed and, if so, could you post a picture please? I am considering them and would really love to see how they look on the dark grey/platinum.
So many great rides shown in this thread, I feel like a kid in a candy store.
Hi Paul:cycles said:Roger, thanks for the reply. I did wonder why you hadn't transferred the side steps onto your Bonavista. The fact that the pads are misplaced makes me even more hesitant to spend $500+.
Hi Paul:cycles said:Hi again Roger.
I've not had much luck finding pictures of Bonavista #0001 other than in the Bonavista registry thread. I'll keep looking so that I can get a look at the side rails and other mods you have done.
I read the thread about the sun roof deflector problems and was concerned about pedestrian safety if parts break off the vehicle. Other than that, the deflector seems like a great idea. I may ask them to put it on during my first service.
Valboo was kind enough to post to the discussion about his leather interior so that it moved to the front page. I have emailed AutoSkin to ask if they can recommend an installer in Calgary.
Hi Jalal:aussietrail said:Roger, I would be interested to know how you gonna remove the visors safely without leaving a mark. I haven't tried that before but may need to in the future. That would be appreciated.
Hi Phil:cycles said:Hi Roger,
Thank you so much for posting those pictures. The chrome rails work really well with the "AWD" fuel door and the door handle frames. Even my wife was impressed and that is saying something because she is very hard to impress when it comes to auto accessories.
I may never achieve the distinguished look of BV #1 or the offroad toughness of Jalal's black exy with nosebar and rails but it gives me something to work towards with my own Platinum BV (#5193).
I finally saw a parked X-Trail with the step bars today and see what you mean about the pads being poorly located. What were they thinking? :0
Still no reply from Autoskin.
For your sake, I hope so mate, cause the area of the 3M tape with these visors is much larger than the door handle garnishes, but I agree with the alcohol solution, with a bit of that you won't even see any rust spots if there is any. hahahahahaCanada's Far East said:Hi Jalal:
I'm the eternal optimist - not anticipating any problems......
I removed the door handle garnish from the other X-T and it was attached with the same
3M tape - left no marks - albeit that I had to clean up the residue with some "GOO GONE".
