Default Hello New Syncro Owner Saying Hi

My name is Will.

Just joining the new forum, dead posh! So many rules, so many areas i can't read still!

I'm returning to T4 ownership after a brief spell with a T3 16" Syncro!

My 3rd T4, a 2.5tdi ex transco syncro, will be ready for me on Sunday. Can't wait!

Then it's back to the good old conversion, remove bulkhead, windows, tidy, hammerite, wax oyl, wire, insulate, line, carpet, seats, swivel, sounds, cabinets. I can't wait. A fun winter ahead!

I use syncros because they are 4x4!!! This means better traction. Which means i can get to places that others can't and have a camper van to be in when i get there. They handle very nicely on road too. They are safer in wet weather and snow. They will drive through deep soft sand easily. They get up muddy steep tracks. No one knows you have 4x4 so you don't get the Eco-guilt.

Basically as a child all i ever wanted was a 4x4. I have now had many and miss it when i don't have it. It's a compromise between other half wanting a nice safe car and camper and me wanting a dirty smelly defender!
