Hi all. Recently acquired a 2001 T4 with the 2.5 petrol and auto transmission. Been kept in really good condition and despite 143000 on the clock, the only (visible) areas of work are the classic wheel arches and the rusting (however, even these are very repairable!).

That said, whole thing is very tired, interior is Caravelle spec with two rows of 3 seats and 2 in the front. All canvas seats and in need of replacement.
Outside is a light silvery blue, few scuffs, and could def be resprayed / wrapped in the future.
Wheels are 15" stock and again surprisingly unkerbed, but not big enough for my taste :)
Engine been regularly serviced, and just done latest myself.

So... ask is what should I definitely do to keep this girl running for another 100k, and what 'could' I do to improve the aesthetics?

Get the gearbox serviced....
PROPER VW fluid and a new filter.

As for wheels, 16" was an option, 17" work, but do NOT go any bigger or you will have a really poor ride.
BTW, in over 50 years of driving, I've NEVER curbed a wheel!!!!
