    Qashqai Update and new question

    Hi everyone
    Not been on for a few weeks. I was in hospital and since I picked up my new Qashqai, I have been very busy!!
    Would just like to say I love my new Qashqai and i am certainly enjoying not being stuck indoors all day.
    I am currently managing to get between 44 - 48mpg which I am told is not bad at all considering the wintery weather. I know the brochure says + 50 something as the official blurb on mpg, but who really believes that?!! I love the fact that on your dashboard is a pic of a little gear stick and it has an arrow that flashes up or down to tell you the best time to change gear for best fuel economy. I am totally obessed with it now and it really has helped me save on fuel i think.

    The question I have is that my only bugbear is stepping up to get in the vehicle. Because it is high up (which i like) I have found my left hip hurts a bit getting in sometimes, so i want to get a set of side running bars so i can stand on them to get in. Would Motability have an issue with me fitting these on it?


    BTW...Paul, I saw the pic of you and your wife on the Qashqai forum. You look a lovely couple. If you want to see me, I have posted my pic on there with my grandaughter.

    I think as long as it can be put back as standard you'll be fine. I suppose it's like adding and removing tow bars.

    In fact I know of a few people on the QQ forum who have done just that to their Motability Qashqais.

    I love how you knew I was going to look at this thread too

    Thanks for the nice words, I can assure you I've put a bit of weight on since then (and lost a bit more hair)

    Thanks as always Paul.
    I nearly got lucky on the forum for a pair of secondhand Cobras but didn't happen in the end, so still searching.

    Mine is the new 360 Dickson. Much the same as you with a few cosmetic differences.
    I just have the getting in prob because of arthritis in my hip. The steps will sort it out.
