I would be interested in the respones because i've been looking at these places and im not sure about the quaility of the vans.

Where else can you look for a t5 -apart from ebay,pistonheads,autotrader.

transporterland in lydney,all have there pros and cons,they are after all car/van dealers, i got mine from trannyland,few issues which were sorted,but there after sales is rubbish,few members have had issues with them,i was lucky only live down the road from them so easy to get things sorted,also my mate is a top vw/audi mech,who looks after it for me.

I would also be interested to hear any personal experiences of Transporterland too. I know it's a gamble any time you buy a car, it would just be good to hear some of the pros and cons of the companies in the south wales region.

Thanks for the support!T:

Lets not pm just to 1 person just put the post up on here, how else are we all going to learn who to deal with and who not.
Besides if the companies do see whats been put on here whether good or bad perhaps they will be able to sort the problems out that they maybe didnt know they had!!

You could try Antrac Motors in Quakers Yard. He does stock a few T5's but only hlaf a dozen or so. However, Anthony is one of the good guys as far as motor traders go and would go out of his way to make sure you were a happy customer.
I usually trust him to buy my vans for me when I havent got time to source them myself.

Totall agree with Ed about Anthony.

I've known him since I was 18.

He originally supplied my van to my mate I bought it from T:

Thanks for your replys.
I think i might have found a van but its a panel van with 84 bhp but i would like to have windows,rear seats and remap done.
Wheres the best place to get windows done? and what is the cost for slider windows?
Wheres the best to get a remap done and what bhp could i expect and how much would it cost?
Where do you get rear seats from and are they easy to fit-im not bad with spanners.
Any info as wheree to go would be great.

Hopefully i might have a t5.1 by the weekend-i'll post pics asap.T:

I would also be very interested in hearing about window fitting and triple rear seat fitting near the Newport area too. Having looked at some of the vans on offer at the said garages, i would still want to make my own modifications; therefore purchasing a standard van and kitting it out how i want is still very much an option.
