Hi Everyone,

I’m considering getting a transporter kombi, I’m to tight to pay for a modern, low mileage version. I quite fancy an older 2.5 van.
I’ve had a quick perusal of eBay and they seem plentiful. I also looked for Re conditioned engines as most seem v high mileage so my idea was to buy van (5-7k) as well as a new engine (2k?) and also fit new flywheel, clutch, turbo and other ancillaries.
Any obvious pros n cons to my idea? Not sure about LWB vs SWB either. Do have other VW, here it is!

Lovely oak green golf. I had a grey 8v big bumper many years ago, wish I kept it. It was my daily driver while my lotus elan stayed in the garage for sunny days! I would buy one that you like the look of even with miles but keep a pot of money just in case. You maybe surprised at how long they’ll go for 👍
