ive been offered a nice looking t4 2.4 swb r&r bed cupboards lowered cooker sink 18inch alloys its a on going project that i need to put windows in and finish the conversion off its a good deal but not knowing alot about the t4 scene ie insurance and stuff like that

its wot ever takes your fancy with the van dude, ther all great, the 2.5s are faster but expensive to fix, if your good with spanners then the others will be easy to work on, and run as sweet as on a cooking oil mix, its an expensive hobby tLOL:hough,
i bought the best i could afford, a 1.9td 800 special one owner from new:eek: and mint, i love it , and ive just started working in a vw coverters 2 days a week so im redoing all the interior again, just for the hell of it:D



good luck wit your search chum,

I would get a Caravelle - save cost of putting in windows, come with tailgate and usually come with some nice toys T:

Can also be insured on a car policy, so if you have an existing insurance policy it can just be transferred across.

2.5 all day long there the best by far in my opinion! 3 guesses what mine is....I: :ILU:
Whatever you buy you will end up spending on it, T4's are the best vans on the road by far but even the newest ones are approaching 10 years old now.
You dont mind spending on them though, as if yours ends up anything like mine, they become part of the family, mine tows well, does long runs without problem, not bad on diesel and the 5 cylinder growl is just brilliant!
