It is on the main rd. The SS erin main rd.
I don't know the name of the place but its on left side when heading to Penal.
After you pass Lall's(left side of rd) and MS supermarket(right side of rd) and the bridge, then another supermarket GnN( leftside of rd) and Trinshine hardware( right side of rd) you come to this place.
So its not to far after you pass the bridge.


I went looking for this place....... is it Elvin's ??

They only had the side step $2,000 a universal one so nothing wrtten on it.
They said they would be getting the front and rear chrome grill/crash bars in a week time cost is $2,500 for the front (a universal one)

Universal mean no name on it?
It would look same but no name?
I like the look of the front grill with the name Tucson on it.

The prices at Elvin is VAT inclusive?
I wount mind paying the $2000 for their side steps.

The firm quoted me $3500 for the side steps and $3500 for the front grill and $3300 for the back grill, prices VAT exclusive.

Yeah.......vat inclusive
their number is 647-1848

An alarm shop in Gooding village is selling the reverse sensor for $800 installed, but that is with 2 sensors on the bumper. The 4 sensor one is $1,095 installed.
Prices vat inclusive
The tech guy said you need the 4 sensor one depending on how the back of the vehicle is shaped. The Tuscon can use the 2 sensor.

Sensor: the shop's name is "The Automobile & Tech shop" it is just before the gas stations that are being rebuilt; going up the hill from from the interchange. Their number is 653-7113. A far as I know it is only the number of sensor required required to give the back of the vehicle coverage. Some vehicles require more than others.

The tail light package from the firm does not include reverse sensors.......

What comes with the 2 sensor package in terms of display (if any) ?

Does this one just "beep" or you see some kind of display in the car ?
Did you see them install it in the bumper..they know that they are doing ?

I got correct figures for accessories so would post it up when I get more time.

Also SS is correct abt reverse sensor not included in tail lights package. Its separate at $1200+ VAT.

The alarm they told me is Prestige.

Also they reach 7100+ in registration #.

When you say..grill..you mean the "bush bar" , "nudge bar" or something else?

The side steps..are those the pipes or the running board type ?

No scene man, but 3500 + VAT for that...thats high.

Ok..the thing that have "TUCSON" on it (front/back) is the nudge bar..similar to the one for the Sorento, Prado etc

The bush bar is all metal, sometimes chrome plated.

Ok I learn something new :) Thanks.

SS was saying at Elvins have the side steps for $2000 but a universal brand. I think tht so much more reasonable than the $3500+VAT.

True..but remember "Good thing no cheap..and cheap thing no cheap" .

Check the quality of the item before you spend your cash, it might not line up with the mounting holes already on the van etc..

Yeah, as far as I know N&M south still gets those items from AutoAir on Cipero Street so you would be good to go from there. You could always confirm the price with AutoAir in case the firm is charging some "markup" to do have the items installed.

It's called a rice-delier.

It's your vehicle and your money to spend, but as a fellow Hyundai owner take my advice please...leave that kind of thing for those Honda people.

AutoAir supplies and installs the nudge bars for N&M.
I checked them out, you won't save anything by going directly to them.
On the AutoPage reverse sensor.... I was right next to the vehicle when the guy installed it. He did a very good job. I am a bit picky and like every screw, washer and clip to go back the way it was....... of course I told him this.
The sensor works great, it was money well spent especially when the wife has to drive. There is an led display mounted by the rear-view mirror and the beeping get quicker until it becomes continious as you reverse closer to an object.

I don't like the nudge bars......... where can I get bush bars ?????

Ok great, thanks for the heads up..I want to get a reverse warning system, have not decided on if to get the sensor or the camera one as yet.

Last year when I was at AutoAir, they had the "A" bar for the Tucson, not sure about now though. I was always weary about the bush bars since I read that some bars affect the timing and deployment of the air-bags. :(
