Default Tow bar + Redarc tow-pro elite brake controller

On sharkcavers advice, I had the dealer installed the tow bar and the electric brake controller.
I'm really glad I did. Here is a thread of what's involved.

I chose a Redarc tow pro elite for two reasons. Firstly it is nowhere near my left knee, like the prodigy controller was. Secondly, it allows you to manually override and apply a constant adjustable trailer brake force without needed to hold it on. It also looks really discrete.

Here's where the controller is installed. I allowed room to the left for the fuel gauge or other switches.

Default TPMS - Tyredog TD1300A-X

When I purchased the tyre dog (Chinese clone) I accidentally bought two.
So, the second one is now in the NX.

You've got a few good months headstart on me! As with any build, it's all about what suites yourself best, but I cant help feeling it will be verrry similar.

True, but Its very different already and I like what I see. Top stuff. Least your tow pro was installed in a position to be of use. Same cant be said for mine.

Anyone know if the NX suffers from dash shake on severe corregated roads?
Is this another mod I need to add to the list?

Mine is 12 months old now, now noticeable dash rattles and I've done quite a few corrugated roads. A low volume one rattle which was pissing me off took me a while to find....it's the cover plate on the gear lever.

yeah, it's annoying, if you put your finger on it, it stops so it's not major.
I haven't tried to remove the plate to apply a fix but a small bit of sticky tape over the bottom of it would probably be enough.

That rattled on mine as well. I pulled it off and discovered the rattle was the clear lense things for what gear position you are in.
They are a loose fit with no felt padding.

I can't remember exactly what I did to fix it but it involved felt strips from ebay to line the contact areas.
I also put some stick on sound deadening where I could under the whole panel to absorb vibration.

No more rattles from there now

Very nice mate! Didn't know you were thinking of an upgrade!

Great choice! And love the colour! Bet you are looking forward to putting some pin stripes on it!
