I got all my parts from automotive-enhancements. I went for stainless steel instead of ABS plastics. The Chrome parts all fitted really well.
I got the skid plate but it did not fit as well. It's about 0.5cm too short. Not noticeable though. I have now fitted mud flap as well. Both skid plate and mad flap fitting says to reuse a plastic fastener to secure it. This is not possible because the extra thickness means the fastener is too short to clip back in place. I got round this with tie wraps. It's not noticeable being beneath the car.

It's good to be a bit different because there are so many Qashqai around!

Thanks dvdpiper, just had a look they have some nice stuff on there and I think you are write the stainless finishers look and would and would wear better.
The only ting that is a small concern is sticking trim on with the 3m tape, is it strong enough and would it damage the paintwork if you wanted to take it off or it was damaged

They are all stuck down with 3m hence you dont have a choice if you want the chrome. I will just get replacement if they are damaged hence dont have to worry about residue if I take them off. I did buy additional 3m to stick the side rails down to ensure it doesnt come off because it was heavier being longer. It would have been ok without it but I wanted to be sure. The 3m are very sticky hence my sure u get it right when putting it on. I went on youtube to see the best way to stick them on.

ndh58, you will find that there are not many options left to attach accessories except for the famous 3M Double Sided Tape. I think all the stuff on our QQ used 3M or similiar whether from Nissan, AliExpress, eBay, Amazon etc. It is great stuff as long as you prepare the surface and line up the part to be stuck first (with long stuff two people is an advantage), normally you do not get a second chance - stuck is stuck. Removal can normally be done with care using the Wife's Hairdryer and cleaning up the adhesive. Do not be put off by these comments if care is taken all what you apply will look good - have fun Dave :)

Thanks for the reply, yes not to concerned with the application of it as you say they all use it, was just a little concerned if it marked paint, but as you say a little heat and care should be ok
