New Qashqai 2020 N-TEC

Post by lapalmeraie » Tue Mar 28, 2017 7:50 am

Hi guys

I just signed up this morning after seeing a question/reaction on one of my Youtube vids here. :)
My name is Niek, I'm dutch but live in Belgium near the French border with my French speaking wife and two lovely kids.

Besides my great passion for exotic plants and palmtrees (La Palmeraie is in fact the name of my website ;) ) I'm also a QQ owner sinds February 2016. Since end 2015 I'm quite active on the dutch QQPassion forum but I did read topics here as well from time to time.

I own a Pearl White QQ Connect edition 1.6 DIG-T with panoramic roof but I also did some modifications as well. I started with the replacement of the trunk light by two LED strips. Than I changed the horrible sounding horn for something I bit more mature. I placed an Autobot dashcam, disabled the stop/start system and changed both H11 and H7 halogen headlights by LED.

Maybe you did already see one of my Youtube vids? As I like to create tutorials as well, I did a vid on each mod on my QQ.
The goal is to keep it simple, accessible and affordable and without damaging the car of course. Just minor but practical improvements on this already great car ;)

Hope posting here from time to time.

Kind regards
Niek

Welcome Niek - I'm a new boy here myself, having had by J11 Tekna 1.2 DIG-T just over a month. I've added bonnet struts, changed the horn and am soon to fit your boot light mod (led strips on their way from AliExpress)

Thanks Nick! Good luck with the boot light mod. It's quite simple and really pleasant to have I might say.

Very nice...love the look of the new N-TEC with all the black accents and black interior, must say I'm a bit surprised it doesn't come with a heated windscreen.

Yes, I was surprised as well.
Only the heated seats come as an option...

Unfortunately I think you will find that the Heated Screen is Std on the Tekna / Tekna +. I believe there used to be an optional extra for the Front Screen On the N-Tec - Dave 😏

Indeed Dave, heated windscreen, heated and electrical front seats. Only the heated seats can be added as an option on the ntec.
But I loved the looks of the ntec model over the heated options.

Have to agree with you there, lapalmeraie...the n-tec is the best looking Qash out there at the minute, very subtle and very stylish too.
