  1. Pop tops - hight/parking issues?

    T5 Conversions
    Hi, I’m new to the forum having just acquired a second hand T5 which I plan to convert to a camper. I’m considering the pros and cons of putting in a pop top roof. Apart from the obvious cost (£2500 seems to be as cheap as it gets) I was wondering if anyone could let me know any of the down...

    Hi all, I've an 04 T5 Kombi, 2.5 T32 and am going to replace the front bumper from the grey plastic one to a newer, colour coded one from a Caravelle/mulitvan.
