  • [Traitor Car] Nibnob's Nissan

    Got a new addition to the fleet. Probably not what you're expecting. 2004 Nissan X-Trail 2.2dci SVE. I don't have a proper exterior photo so here's a generic one from Google; mine's identical.




    Interior was absolutely filthy, don't have any before pics, but I spent some time this weekend cleaning it all up. Pretty happy with the results.

    Here's some brown grimey dirt coming out of the leather:




    And some after pics:










    Also polished up the headlights to try and reduce the yellow staining. Just used my DA with a bit of Meguiars Ultimate Compound. Pretty happy with the results for 5 minutes work.

    After:




    Driver's side done:




    Both done:

    The polished headlights look good on any car that's starting to age. I need to do them on my Fabia as well. They're much worse though and i don't have a DA so not looking forward to it!

    What made you go for one of these?

      Just use different grades of sand paper. Start with about 600 or so then work up to about 2000, then buff up. This was just a quick going over to see if some basic compound in the DA would help or not. Thankfully it worked fairly well, so I don't need to bother with anything more aggressive. Still a bit of a yellow tinge, but it's good enough.

      Number of reasons for getting this. Got a massive dog so need a vehicle suitable for him. My car is coming off the road for a few months in a couple of weeks, so I need a run about. Soph works every other weekend so this gives me options for taking the dog out that the MX5 doesn't. Plus plenty of various other reasons.

          how do you rate osram I thought they were just as crap as standard bulbs when I tried them

            Those sidelights make it look a lot better. Air filter / pollen filter looked overdue as well.

            I used to always buy Philips and Osram "upgraded" bulbs but i've recently found out there's not much point.
            The amount of light output (lumens) is the same between regular Osram bulbs and the Nightbreaker Plus. The main difference is they are slightly more white so makes road markings easier to see. They give the illusion to brighter with the way the bulbs project light. They're brighter direct;y in front of you at the cost of reduced light from other areas.

                I've always found osram to be absolute ****.

                Rack has them in her Corsa, and mine are so much better, and don't break the bank either. Not sure how they managed to get such a good reputation

                      That's him on the left. Really hard to capture his size in a photo.




                      This is him in the back of the X-Trail...head touching the roof. Sp yeah, pretty big.

                        yeah he's not gonna fit in the MX5!

                        I'm desperate for a dog, but work away too much and live in a rented house.

                          Roof down, leather goggles. He'd be fine

                          We're in rented but the landlord is ok with animals, which is rare. But we get the keys to our first house this week

                              That's a good shout. No one's suggested that breed yet.

                              To be perfectly honest we don't know but we're fairly certain he's a Mastiff cross. He's from a rescue centre so we don't have his history.
