Updated the Murano!

My wife has a 2003 Murano. We bought it used in 08 and in 09 I added the 2009 Murano LE wheels. She has been getting the itch for a new car again so I decided to update this one in hopes that she would be happy with it for a little longer. The 03 grille was starting to bubble up so I installed an 06. I think it really complemented the cars color. I also added the black nissan half tag and HID fogs. I am very happy with how it all turned out. I just need to get it cleaned up to take better pics. I also have to install the rear bumper protector but Its been too cold and rainy here to try and worry about the double sided tape to hold it on. Let me know what you guys think...

First got her....


With the 09 wheels...



Grilles side by side...


Grille and Tag installed...


HID's installed...



The fogs are a near perfect match to the factory HID's. The one pic above, the passenger fog looks to have a bluer tint than the drivers but it does not in "real life"...

Now watch her turn around and say: "I really want a new car. Thanks for the effort though."


After 142K miles, my MO is history. Now sporting a loaded silver 2012 Ford Edge Limited with 20" wheels.

so far so good. She actually really likes the MO so maybe this will keep in the garage a little longer!

Same size as the 03's? The 03's were 18's and the 09's are 20. Other than that they mounted up with no problems. I do have a little rub at full lock on the sway bar but I did go with a wider tire than stock.

Updated the Murano!

I got a set of hid's off eBay. I will have to check and see what temp they are. I just pulled the fender liners back to get to the lights. Was a pain on the passenger side but not too hard.

Looks very nice. I think it's wise to do updates from time to time.
