Dead right. It does prompt the question: Why did VW continue putting short noses onto vans for many years after that? I heard that VW designers preferred the look of the shortnose but needed the long nose to create space for the 2.5 Tdi and VR6 engine. Seems weird that they continued with tooling and variations in assembly lines when the long nose fits so easily and must have cost much the same.

I've got to say I'm with the VW designers, but then I would cos I've got a shortnose!

So whose got the latest shortnose?

2005 ????? surely must be an import or something as they stopped production in 03 and there are some 04's which are very few and far between
