Got my new 15 plate white T30 140ps Highline Kombi last week. Got rid of my 4x4 to use this as the new family runabout and towcar for our twin axle caravan

Yesterday she was lowered 40mm on H&Rs. And the van sits much nicer now.

The major mods start next week with it going to 2 Transporter conversion companies. So will update this post then.

Ok. Finally got out to the van today to give it a spruce up after its make over.



Sportline front with drls. Also changed the headlight drl bulbs for led, although they give off quite a blue glow compared to the bumper drls so may look for alternative




Sportline rear spoiler with the obligatory Sportline black alloy wheels. Although these might be replaced for 20s next year if i can find some i like.



Interior has had sound deadening, recycled plastic insulation, carpet lined and 4 led rooflights fitted. The rooflights either come on via the doors opening or can be manually switched on via a switch on the roof console. The lights really do brighten up the interior at night.




Finally two 12v sockets fitted in the back lower front seat panels so the kids can charge their ipads whilst travelling.



Ive also had the Westfalia detachable towbar fitted with 13pin electrics. To be honest ive had Witter and Towtrust detachable towbars on previous cars and i find their release mechanisms for the towbar much better the Westfalia's but i suppose i will have to live with it.

I just want a few more bits to complete the exterior now such as sidebars, wind deflectors, mudflaps, roof rails and a bumper sill protector. Interior wise all i want is a satnav head unit and speaker upgrade. But thats for next year now as i need to let the bank balance recover!

First trip out with the T5 towing our twin axle. Stopping at Grafham water for the weekend. It pulled the van admirably. 26mpg according to the trip, however accurate that is?

Nice setup you've got there, its a bit sad but I always love the look of my van and caravan on the road!
