NOTE: If the
Australian X-Trail Forum is inaccessible due to an extended
outage or server over-load, you can log-in to our very own LIVE
Chat Room to stay in touch with other members and also find-out
what is going on. The Live Chat Room can be accessed by clicking
on the box below. (you will only be able to use this chat
service when a member of the admin team is logged-in and you
also need to register to be able to use it) This chat service is
not to be used by NEW USERS trying to register to become members
of the forum!
The terms WE and US refer to
Australian X-Trail Forums.
Even though we will make the best possible effort you must recognise
due to the real-time nature of this forum: we cannot always monitor
the contents of posted messages and we depend upon you to inform us
when participants or their messages are violating our policy as
stated here. You also recognise that we cannot respond immediately
to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted
action is taken.
Treat others how you would like done to you
If you stumble across a newbie having trouble with technical stuff
you�ve mastered, share your knowledge and help �em out. Someone has
probably helped you like this in the past and this is your chance to
give back like a good citizen!
We encourage an exchange of opinions
After all that�s what a forum is, if you disagree with someone�s
post, challenge it respectfully without attacking the individual.
"Flaming" and insults, however, won�t be tolerated, and will be
Respect personal information
Never post your or anyone else�s personal information in the public
forum (phone number, email address, mailing address, etc.) and never
ask others for their personal info. Posts requesting personal info
will be removed. This includes, but is not limited to,
communications that ask for personal information such as email
address, address, telephone numbers, etc. Please use the PM function
when submitting any of your own personal details to other members
but still exercise care and common sense as we will not take any
responsibility in the way your information is used by other members
you have chosen to share with.
- Don't complete posts in CAPS. It looks like you are shouting.
- Try to avoid ugly colours.
- Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the
Posting / Spamming
Don't create new posts straight after you have added a reply to
a thread just for the sake
of it, or because you want to get a higher post count for your
profile. If you have forgotten to say something or your
last post needs correcting, and it is less than
old, then use the EDIT
feature and fix up your post. The only exception is if
somebody has replied to you in the meantime, then you can create
a new post to respond back.
Double posting effectively increases the length of the thread
and adds clutter which consequently makes finding information
much more difficult.
External Links and URLs
Members are advised to pay close attention
to any links they decide to include as part of their post on our
forum. Such links should NOT contain any offensive, sexual and
political content. Any non-XTrail or 4WD related linkage is not
PM's (Private Messages)
Currently each member has a limit of 20 PM's in their inbox. If
someone sends you a PM and your inbox is full, the PM will be lost
with no notification. So be careful with your inbox, and delete PM's
Political & Religious Content
Please note that due to the sensitive situation around the globe
in terms of political and religious matters, all posts
containing views and discussions on these two subjects will be
removed from the forum.
Our forum is 4WD & AWD related and we would like to keep it that
way, leaving politics and religion aside.
Our version of politics and religion is the X-Trail
Illegal Activity & Requests
Please note that
the Australian X-Trail Forum does not
support or condone illegal activity of any type.
Posts containing such requests and/or
information, will be removed on the spot, repeat offenders will
have their account suspended!
Use your common sense. Forum posts that contain harassing,
offensive, vulgar, obscene, sexual, abusive, hateful, or otherwise
unacceptable communications and/or images, including messages that
condone illegal activity, will not be tolerated and will be removed.
Individuals who don�t abide by these rules may have their account
The information contained in this website is not
cross referenced, so don�t take it as gospel. Copies of articles
from other sites are included here to avoid out-of-date linkage
errors, and the authors and original URLs are credited where known.
A person/member posting specific details about a business and/or
dealership is fully responsible for the content of that post.
Should this lead to a legal action being taken against such claims,
Australian X-Trail Forum will take no part or involvement in such
cases and the member will be fully responsible to resolve this
matter outside of this forum.

Forum Group Buy
A group-buy through the forum is certainly possible
if the following takes place:
There is enough
interest to start-up a group-buy.
One of the
existing members of the forum who has implemented a mod or is
offering a part and/or accessory provides a brief summary of
what is involved (parts, costs..etc) to the forum
volunteers to coordinate this group-buy and be the central point
of contact for all those who take part in it.

behalf of the Australian X-Trail Forum and the ability to negotiate

transactions can only be arranged by the Head Administrator to
minimize risks, so any other group-buy which the admin is not
involved in, would need to take place whereby participants pay the
Members are NOT
authorized to negotiate deals with manufacturers or otherwise using
the Australian X-Trail Forum name without prior permission of the
forum administrator/s. Failure to do so may result in membership
Members need to be mindful and aware that international group-buy
transactions carry an element of risk and may in some cases result
in sellers not delivering a product. While the Australian X-Trail
Forum would make every effort to minimise such risk, it does exist
and it can happen, so please use your own judgement.
