This is following on from the thread in the T5 section ref bodykits HERE. I think the general consensis on bodykits for the T4 are that they are a bit OTT and there is a huge gap in the market for something more subtle. I have suggested to Leeloo that maybe a bespoke splitter to fit onto the stock T4 bumpers and maybe a wide arch kit would be nice for vans running low offset wide wheels.

Any other ideas and suggestions appreciated T:

one more question about arch kit, for what kind of type of T4, SWB ?? LWB ?? before 98 or aftr 98 ?? I know there can be differences.
Can you precise me what king ist more popular ?
Leeloo, i think the arches are the same on the LWB and SWB models are the same so it shouldn't be too much of a problem. With the splitters there might be a bit of a problem because of the differences with the old and new style bumpers, from your perspective i would probably initially do something bespoke for the new bumpers although having the old bumpers i would love it if you made something for the early ones.

Think we need something subtle for the back bumper also Jim. Same old story. You sort your front splitter add some side bars so from the side she's sittin low except for the back end.

Just a suggestion T:

Good plan, especially with a nice pair of pipes to frame T:

I quite fancy some sort of side trim for the jacking points to cover that unsightly strip between the arches as well T:

They only need to be a bit wider than the stock arches, maybe 3cm but must blend well with the stock bumpers so tapering away at the bottom. I'm sure whatever it is they will be ace T:T:

How about an easy way of getting rid of the lopsided ears. Maybe snap on covers but both the same size. Might even be space inside for a blind spot mirror as standard on so many other vans.

I'm never going to be able to afford audi style lights, so been thinking about how to add LED DRL's in the grill or the fog light spaces.
