Hello everyone

My name is Stu in 26 year old mechanic and live in Hadleigh near Ipswich.
have owned to vw before

1995 Golf vr6 highline
1993 Golf vr6
and loved then both
I'm currently in Afganistan (again) and just heard an insurance claim from last new years eve has been settled (50/50) :eek: So will be selling my 2000 BMW 535 v8 :( in April on my return. I have always had a soft spot for an tidy van, had a mk 4 escort van a few years back. i'm married and have a rotty so a t4 would be a more practical motor.

while im here I dont want to start a massive disscusion in the wrong place but should I look for 1.9 or 2.5 or doent it really matter?

Depends on how long you typically keep vehicles, no point in spending months looking for the perfect van if you typically sell it it within 6 months anyway...

You can never replace displacement can you... I:

Enjoy Afghanistan, I'm off to Hadleigh to visit my sister & family for a few days T:

A good 1.9td is just as good as the 2.5tdi except for when you are towing and is so easy to maintain in comparison. 2.5's are great but cambelts are complicated and time consuming like everything else 2.5tdi. I'm driving a 51plate 2.5 at the moment and i wouldn't know where to start working on it plus my 1.9tdi (conversion) is qucker and more economical. Cant wait to get rid of it and get back to driving my 1.9 again T:T:T:T:
