Title: hi everyone.
Post by: eabbus on April 19, 2012, 06:24:37 PM
hi everyone.  :) just got our first estima emina and love it more than expected.
at first it was just because it was an 8 seater but now its a different story.
anyway i want to style it a bit and wondered if anybody could advise where to get a front nudge bar side steps/bars and alloys.

tried searching but can't find any.

Don't think there's much in that way of personalizing gear,there's a guy on here who's put running boards on but they're altered to fit,probably the same if you can get hold of a nudge bar you'll have to alter the brackets to fit.
Try American E/BAY.The yanks tend to roll out aftermarket custom gear,as soon as vehicles come onto the scene,in this country it's very slow as far as specific vehicles are concerned.Best of luck ;) Oh and welcome to the club/site 8)

Hi & welcome
The bits you are looking for do come up on ebay and usually (especially the steps 250 :-( ) cost a fortune!
But do keep looking, While I had both my Estimas one set of steps came up twice...I think the seller was greedy ??? as the first ''winner'' was a non payer :-\

Given up looking now lol. Next plan is to find a bra for her.

Loving the estimated so much having previously owned zafiras.
Can't stop polishing. Just replaced rocker cover gasket as it was leaking and fitted air horns to be a menace.
Looking forward to getting involved and bringing my family (wife and 6 kids) to a meet.

Who needs a manual when there is this forum.
I've removed the towards as I won't use it and it's rattled with the exhaust since I replaced the middle section, next its oil air and fuel filters and autobox fluid which I think might drain crappie out through plug then try to syphon through dipstick. Then it's drop links and arb bushes.

Excited much :)
