It appears that most of the items offered in the accessory packs (when purchasing a new Duster) are available to purchase separately. So, which is cheaper? Below, I've compared the price from dealer fitment, vs self-fitment.

Where possible for each item, there is a link to purchase the item direct from ShopDacia.com (An EU-based Dacia accessories online shop) along with their price, a Dacia UK part number so you can order from your local dealer, UK price, fitting guide and a link to fellow Dacia owners reviews of the product. The UK Dacia Dealer price INCLUDES fitting, so you can make an informed decision as to whether you wish to fit yourself, or pay the dealer to do it.

Update - All DaciaForum Premium Members now get 5% off ShopDacia.com's prices. So you can save even more money whilst supporting us!

Ultimately though, what the above shows is that all the items are available to purchase separately. This means you can mix and match, and spec your Dacia Duster exactly how you want it!

Blimey, Nick.

You have certainly done your homework here.

It is compelling stuff. When I read about the prices , I have to admit I thought they were quite a bit pricey.

The only pack I got was the touring pack. I checked the prices on a tow bar fitted, as I am a mechanically minded as a bag of leaf mould. I would not be able to fit a towbar if my life depended on it, and wiring in the electrical bit is asking for an honourary mention in the Darwin Awards!

Incidentally I noticed that it is a 13 pin thing, and I have a 7 pin things, Reading up, it seems to be a rationalisation to a European standard (One which actually makes sense for once) and I can pick up a converter for about a fiver.

I have had a look at the boot guard thing before. As I understand it, it is something that gose on the horizontal top of the bumper that abuts the floor level of the boot. There are some sites on ebay where you can have any wording stencilled on it! Even fruitty ones, if you know what I mean, LOL

The ones i have seen on Ebay and that excellent website you have mentioned before, seem to be stuck down using the 'Blue Peter' method of sticky backed plastic!!

They also do ones for the door sills!!

That all said, it certainly shows that post sales fitting is the way forward, and at least I do not have to stump up cash in advance.

In regards to the DRLs, I am sure that at some point my daler willbe able to; I am going to ask him next time I drive past; evidently they are mandatory in Czech republic, where I want to got to.

I've now managed to get hold of the official Dacia fitting guides for most of the accessories! I'll be uploading them today hopefully
As I suspected, most of it is pretty straightforward to fit, all the body mouldings are stuck / screwed on, electrics look straight forward as well. I'll let you know when I'm done

Nick, any news on the uploads? I'm itching to start reading-up.....

This is one of the things I'll be asking about the warranty. I wonder if it is affected by installing Dacia parts, but doing it after purchase and not using Dacia dealers for it.....

LOL

Nick, you and I have two very different definitions of straightforward


I look at the manuals and shudder!!

I would like to reiterate, as mentioned in another post, I have all the mechanical ability as a bag of leaf mould, A very large bag,

I'm quite mechanically adept, I've got a 1990 Toyota MR2 in my garage which I'm currently removing the old 2.0 turbo engine, and installing a 3.5 V6 engine
Once done, it'll be putting down about 330bhp!

That sounds pretty cool. I'm quite a fan of old Toyotas.... I've got a Celsior and a Soarer at the moment. Which V6 are you installing? More importantly, what's happening with the old 2.0?....I've always fancied dropping one in a Capri.


I actually run a local Japanese Car Club in Hull. You should check out Five-Yen.com ..... If you're ever in the area, feel free to pop to one of the meets. We're mainly just a few old-boys that sit in a pub and have a bit of a rant. We really didn't like the usual "chav kids" type of clubs, so set up our own. Plus, we like all cars, so wanted anyone to feel welcome.

Have now found the tutorials......Looking forward to a little light reading!

It's a 2grfe, same as what is fitted to the lotus evora! Came from a Toyota Sienna in America, it's about 4 year old.

Hull unfortunately is a bit too far for me I'm afraid! Although agreed on the clubs front, I generally hang out on twobrutal.co.uk, no kids there either!

I've just posted up guides for the 7-pin and 13-pin, you can now take a look at what you're avoiding!

I've just had a gander at the 13 pin thing, and am I glad I am having it fitted!!!

I could feel my brains dribbling out of my ears just reading it.


I am a little perplexed by some of the symbology, to be honest.

Oh I am so glad I am having it done.

Looking through, about the only thing I could have a fighting chance of doing myself without killing me/anyone else or destroying the car to comedic effect, would be the wind deflectors, and even then I would be bricking it!!

I've got wind deflectors on my current car, and tbh, they were a bit of a pig to fit! Kept thinking they were going to snap....

Lol, you're not selling me the idea of attempting them myself!

Do you find them to be any good?

I'm slightly confused about DRL's - theyr'e part of an option pack but according to the European Directive 76/656/EEC, as amended by 2008/89/EC (snappy title)
Vehicle manufacturers must fit DRL to new types of passenger car and light goods vehicle (car derived vans) type approved to European vehicle requirements from February 20111. In practice this means that any new model launched after this date, and many launched before, will be fitted with DRL.

Which would seem to imply they are mandatory - if I've got the wrong end of the stick please remember I started this post with I'm slightly confused....
