Default MY16 NX GLS Build Thread

I took delivery of my MY16 NX GLS last week

I chose white with only a couple of options:
  • MM Towbar
  • MM Spare Wheel Lift

It will be my daily drive. My plans are to build it into a touring rig towing a camper trailer of some kind preferably a hybrid camper but we'll see. It will still need to function as the family weekender.

First Mod: Tyres

It came with Bridgestone Dueller H/T's. So I investigated the possibility to change these over to 697's with my tyre place that I've been going to for years. They came back with a price of $850 to change over all five. A bit pricey I thought and may have to wait until the H/T's wear and that could be years.

On the spur of the moment I dropped into the Jax Tyres around the corner from me. The franchisee, Ainslie, came up with $380 for all five. Done deal!

I stayed with the OEM size 265/60R18 too. Too difficult to source a complete set of 17" rims and then there would also be the cost of the rims and tyres. I'd also be left with the OEM wheels to dispose of somehow so I stayed with the 18's.

Here's a pic still with the blue protective dye.

Cool. As of an hour ago, I just did the same thing. I got the same options as you, but I took a 5 seater povo pack, added tow pro controller, dash mat, h/l protectors and weather shield, MMA workshop manual and 1 x 17" steel rim.

Been in contact with both bushskinz and ARB. The vehicle purchase, just the beginning. I take delivery next week. I look forward to see how our respective buses get modded over time. I have to act quickly, I have a CSR trip coming up in August.

Plenty of good reviews for a start. Value is another, the BFG's are about $200 a tyre more. Coopers have a large advertising campaign which tends to make me question the product closely. Unfortunately for them one of the tyre guys I spoke to didn't rate them at least for the cost vs performance.

Congrats I realised I should have bargained for the FSM as well along with dash and floor mats. What made you pull the pin, have you lost reliability confidence in the NP after Fitzgerald?

Fitted the slim-line weather shields. Non-genuine and a bit "cheap" but I'm guessing that they are a copy of the genuines?

I also got a bonnet protector. Also seems to be a copy, at least the fitting instructions were. However after mucking around only to discover that the pre-cut slots were off-centre I had to take it off to elongate the slots. Put it back on and now discover that the passenger side is sitting about 30mm away from the bonnet. The driver's side was snug and where I expected it to be.

On closer inspection it looks like the acrylic hasn't been folded over symmetrically. I took to it with my heat gun but my first attempt hasn't netted the desired outcome. Called the supplier and I await their reply. I haven't mentioned the heat gun yet.
