When i looked at these everyone said to buy them from a uk distributor in case you have any problems with them snd need to send it back .
They worked out slightly more expensive from.the uk but made any problems under warranty easier to sort .
They are smart bits of kit especially considering the price .

Next job, wait for the Ablemail B2B charger, the Victron BMV-712 battery monitor, and the heated seat control module to arrive so i can do it all in one hit while the seats are out.

Whats the new exhaust sound like ?
a little louder, not as loud as i thought it might be, but iam happy with it. I didnt want something that would annoy everyone on a camp site. I might do a video on put it on youtube and upload the link here for the sound.

Tell you what though van pulls way better which surprised me. Iam going to get the angle grinder out later and cut open the two silencer boxes on the old exhaust and see what they look like inside, iam convinced there clogged up and its been holding back some power. Not why i changed it but its an added bonus....i feeling the urge for a remap now have a taste for its extra pulling power.

I suppose you know what you have now is straight through and clean as a whistle , the old boxes could be partially collapsed inside or just clagged up . ...be good to see

I dont know if i should go T6 front end upgrade i.e front bumper, grills, foglights, splitter etc or keep it 5.1 with corner DRL ?

opinions please ?

I like both, just think the T6 looks a little fresher. Van-X do the complete front end supplied and painted for £950 minus the headlights (will use my new DRL T5.1 headlights) Its a modified version so works with T5.1 headlights

I'm not convinced personally about the 'hybrid' look.
Exhaust doesn't look as choked as i thought it might .
And that head unit fits the dash facia real nice , makes the screen look massive .

Exhaust looks like a family of Angora hamsters had taken residence in there! Will be interested to see how you get on with your heated seats 👍
