When at the dealer, the salesperson was demoing the tailgate to us, and it even screwed up on him (and he plays with them everyday). That and the forced Atari navigation system is what made me buy the XTP instead!
As I said there, it is surely possible, but likely cost prohibitive.
Comaparing photos, you can see the difference. The upper left side of the hatch is where the hydraulic arm is that does the lifting. Note the differences.
Some that I can think of: Rear hatch trim area (white, where the arm comes out of), adding buttons to the drivers compartment and the bottom of the gate, new key fob and/or reprogramming, wiring, lifting mechanism.
We use ours almost exclusively. Love it. Especially the 'memory height' function which allows me to mount the roof-top cargo box where I want it (rearward) and prevent the hatch from hitting/breaking the box.
Great feature. Not sure I would attempt an aftermarket solution, that look more troublesome than it's worth. But it definitely was of value in the decision to go with touring model.
We mostly got it so my girlfriend doesn't have to open and close the tailgate manually, though, with hindsight, we could probably have lived without it. While it is slow, I just press the button as I'm walking to the car, so it's already open when I get there.
Hold the button on the exterior, just above the license plate. Tapping it will open with power, holding it will just unlock so you can open manually.
If you see the door closing on his tail, grab the bottom of the door. The pressure will trigger the obstacle sensor and stop the closing. I don't think his tail would be enough to trip the sensor alone though.

(both sides, actually.) I noticed in behind the wheel well that a fastener is there that's covered with rust but can't make out what it actually is. Brushing it off doesn't help determining...
Hi all, I found part number 91123SJ110 and I'm thinking about swapping the glossy black onto the place near the star cluster logo where the chrome piece is.
Wondering if it's easier to just wrap or plastidip it, or make the swap.
Any gotcha's here?
Also, is it possible to do this without...
