That must be the TDI (silver I) 2.5 TDI (ACV engine code) Same as my red one. Plenty of poke to get you about

The mileage you state there is low for the age I reckon.

Its body work to look for me. Sills, front arches and round the front door and fuel filler are the best places to look. Have you got any photos? Check if the fridge works. I had to repair mine but new ones cost almost 1000ish. Make sure the westfalia control panel at the front works too. They are hard to get hold of these days.

Good luck
Great tips, thanks a lot. I will have that in mind.
Your car looks great. Very nice photograph!

I do not have pictures, but I do have a link.

That van looks very nice indeed! I'd be quite happy with that for the price. Electric windows too. Thats what i'm trying to fit on mine. My knee keeps banging the winder handle on mine. Its had the sink tap replaced which is good. Just replaced mine after it broke.

Default Re: T4 Westfalia California Exclusive - 100 watt Solar Panel fitted

Not sure if it's of any interest but here are some pictures to show how I fitted a 100 watt solar panel to my California Exclusive

There is a simply route through from above the washroom light, you will see the wire coathanger I used (an absolute godsend) to pull cables through.
Take your solar cable from the light fitting into the bathroom cabinet, then from there feed it down the right hand side of the washroom sink.
From there I used my trusty coathanger to pull it through from the fresh water tank to the leisure battery.
If anyones interested I'll go in to it in more detail, I have a few more pics too that might help.
This took me days, but I think it could be done in a morning with all the right bits to hand and knowing where you're taking the cable through. One of the hardest bits was screwing the panel to the aluminium angle because it sits in a recess but I managed it with a homemade right angle screwdriver
