Hi chaps.

In 2002 was the only '888special' available the Xpack long nose or did they also run the short nose version as a non Xpack??

cheers

Well I have the Xpack and have heard of a van coming up for sale.
Only details are that it has 2 single seats leccy windows, full dealer service, reasonable miles and its a 888special.
So it may or may not be an Xpack?

I believe the 888 special and 888special X were launched at the same time in '02 so it could be either, but chances are it's just the basic spesh :)

Our (non-X Pack) short-nose early'03 888 Special has the 2 single seats but is pretty basic accessories-wise, with only "windey-windaes" .... so you may have yourself a long nose X-Pack there ?

mustve been ordered before they did it, to ship the last remaining shells and vehicles of the t4 they put the caravelle fronts etc on

They must have run them side by side as the Xpack was out late 2002.

looking at it i may be a little confused, i cant remember what they called it but the last few t4s that went through production were fitted with caravelle fronts etc as standard i always thought that was called x pack

Pretty sure x-pack is to do with interior spec, caravelle front end is called long noseT:

late 2002 the last t4s x pack was the long nose with electric pack, the last ones to come off the production line were x pack as standard, i think i should be working now lol.....

888 specials and 888 special X packs were sold side by side from May 2002 until end of production. Xpack was an extra cost option ( about 500 I think)

Yeh your right, it was 500 extra... That is fact as I bought mine from new.

The vehicle I'm looking at from VW dealer is an 888special, full service and had 850 of extra inc. alloys at new.

I recon it will be a short nose. But fingers crossed for the highest price 888special Xpack.

Today I also happened to stumble across 'glasses commercial guide' I didn't even realise it existed......

Don't ask what yours is worth to a dealer, you may cry!

Not too sure about X pack on my 53 plater but mine has

electric windows
electric mirrors
captian's chair
twin seat for fellow front passengers
slightly darkened glass rear tailgate

It has 888 special badge on the rear

Cannot see what is so special about them just a basic van
