    General T4 Chat
    I have one of the last T4s TDI's in London - my much beloved ex AA Euro 3 Kombi van. I bought it in 2008 and chose it as I was aware of the LEZ changes coming in in 2012. Being Euro 3 I could survive... Now though I'm looking at the ULEZ changes from 2019/2021 and wondering if there's any way...

    Hey all, Does anyone know of any good (and not too expensive) workshops/blank spaces in London? Looking to rip out current interior on our T4 SWB and replace it with something less clean cut.

  5. T5 Sliding Door Handle - London

    Bodywork & Exterior / Detailing & Valeting
    Hi, I've recently bought a T5 and started on a conversion. The guy I bought it from said that it had been broken into via the sliding door handle and as a result he'd had the handle removed and covered over. The van now has no handle on the sliding door. My options are either to attempt to...

    Hello, I'm new here so apologies for asking anything daft. Me and the Mrs are in the market for our first camper, I've always had a soft spot for the T4 so am thinking this is the way to go. We're after something that has been converted already as we don't have the space/time to carryout the...

    Hi I'm thinking of putting a Westdubs poptop on my T5. I didn't think I could afford a poptop at this stage, but I'm blown away by the price of westdubs and he seems to have lots of good reviews here.
