My mods

Well, apart from the mods that are mentioned on my xtrail web site:

http://jalalski.tripod.com/

I have also recently done the following:

* Upgraded the cluster dials from black to white (i.e. picked-up the dials from a Ti Xrail at the wreckers)

* Added a set of genuine nissan Ti tweeters (also from the wreckers)

* Changed the side blinkers to white.

* Replaced the tailgate garnish with a chrome one (instead of the colour-coded one that was there)

* Replaced the front grille with a chrome one (instead of the colour-coded one that was there)

On my wish list of things to do:

* Upgrade to 16" alloy wheels (hopefully to be sourced from the wreckers as well) :) I currently have a set of 15" alloys on mine.

* Get the centre multi-purpose console, which I've been hunting down for a while now.

* Get the back door handle (same as bove, still hunting)

* Get the roof mounted DVD system (aftermarket)

Double Tail Exy

Hi Guys,

My latest mod is somewhat very exciting and it involves chaging the exhaust system from the cat. back with high flow sports muffler and double tail-pipes on the sides.

I have decided to go with 2 resonators to keep the noise level down and that was the perfect choice, as it is quiet as a mouse.

For all pics and a review, see the report I posted on the Aussie Forum HERE

Wow! :)

Got my oil catch can on Ebay for $16.00 including shipping. The Nismo whelss you can get are the ones intended for the 350Z (Fairlady) or the Altima/Maxima. The Skyline wheels are too wide.

The catch can is universal. It went on with no problems whatsoever.

The Skyline wheels are 8 inches (at least) of width.

The Murano discs seem (again SEEM) to be a direct bolt-on to the X. I'm planning on later upgrading to Brembo Murano blanks with Pagid or EBC pads.

If so please let us know if they Fit....as I find the Xtys braking power appalling...Cos I am thinking of either Fitting Silvia S15 brakes or the R32's brakes

R32 brakes would be overkill, especially if you don't install a manual proportioning valve to regulae brake pressure to the rear wheels. I actually find the front brakes quite strong, but the rear brakes leave a lot to be desired.

I took a good look at a Murano the other day and it seems the front rotors will fit without any issues, but the rears won't as they use a floating caliper instead of the disc/drums the X has.

A friend of mine has a Murano so I'll ask him if he can fit 15 inch wheels on his truck. I need to know this, since I already have some 15 inch steel wheels to mount when I go drag racing again.

these are a lot of modifications!

have not really done anything to my ride. i love it the way it is.

changed my halogen lamps to higher wattage and put in a set of foglamps. my ride did not come with the factory foglamps. i also got the cargo bay shade and would like to get the rubber liner as well. that's it.

i have it waxed at the local meguiar's about once a month. still looks good as new. have it for one year this month.

Roof Driving Lights

Hi Guys,

Thought I'll show you my latest addition.

The exy with super dooper roof spotties is here. hehehe :)






OK, the mod was not done by myself, so I took it to a local auto electrician who spent on it half a day and it's still not finished yet.

We looked at everything and decided to do the following next weekend to tidy everything up.

1. The sockets that you now see visible coming from lights will no longer be there.

2. The roof rack weather strip is getting inserted back next weekend too.

3. The 2 sockets at the bottom of each roof rack will also be made less visible.

The whole set-up is detachable and can be taken-off along with the front roof rack.

I bought a spare roof rack to replace this one when taken off, if I decide to use the luggage box instead. (highly unlikely now that I have seen the light) hehehe

The wiring as I suggested to the electrician came from the back of the roof racks and followed the weather strip rubber along the windscreen and got tucked neatly under it (2 wires from each side of the windscreen)

I was not happy with the little bit of wire showing at the corner of the windscreen, but we just couldn't do anything about it. No room for it to be tucked away at all, so we decided to leave it like that (being black is not that bad I reckon)

The lights are mounted on Rhino roof racks and brackets which I realized Rhino was selling.

The whole set-up, especially the "chrome" lights really stands-out and looks awesome.

Can't call the exy a SUV anymore with this amount of lights LOL

Jalal, how about routing the wire through the rear hatch. You could just follow the weatherstripping. You can also try using the rear spoiler holes.

We tried that as well, but because my rear spoiler is aftermarket, it is fitted differently (i.e. on top of the roof rails) plus the idea of removing the roof lining in full to be able to pass through these wires did not look exciting to me.

In addition to all that going all the way to the tailgate and back to the engine bay (where the relays are) will dramatically increase the length of the cable/wire, which means less power to the lights and less bightness.

It doesn't look too bad on my exy because it's black, but that small bit of wire will stand out more on other color xtrails.

I will attempt to squeeze the wire under the roof rail on that corner if I can.

MEGA WATTS OF POWER

Well done, mate :thumbup: That's a very impressive set-up.

No doubt your plan is to only use them off road - BUT, if you were to have a power outage, you could light up half the neighborhood - and charge the prevailing hydro rates - more money for accessories :)

Enjoy = Roger
