I spent way more then i should of during lockdown so need to take a van break........

having said that i cant help but think about the next lot of upgrades 😊

gonna hold off on a remap for the moment until i can inspect the clutch, gearbox and turbo. vans on 240k and i dont know how old they all are. i dont have any receipts to prove they were ever changed.

I know i want to finish the air vent pillar upgrade, so that requires new door cards with the round vents, corner DRLs, foglights and loom, MK7 golf r steering wheel and airbag, and retrofit vw reverse parkign sensors. would also like to upgrade the front speakers and add tweeters....maybe some rainbows and add some rear speakers.....where to start

Mines got slightly less mileage, I am also wondering about condition of clutch, gearbox, mdf etc., it’s becoming increasingly difficult to get a smooth gear change from 1st to 2nd and from 2nd to third 🤔

The one you linked mate, as it was the one I was already looking at. Arrived yesterday which is really good as they stated a 2 week lead time. Just got to try and fit it now 🤷‍♂️

I've never really bothered with speakers so know nothing about what's good or not, you guys talking rainbows and I'm thinking of the ones in the sky 🤣

And not the rainbow with zippy,george and bungle either :ROFLMAO: .

The standard speakers aren't great in vans , ours were blown when we bought it and farted horribly 🙉.

iam about to attended on online drivers awareness course for speeding.

3 hours long, better £90 for the coutse then the 3 points for speeding.

i wouldnt mind but its sneaky how they get you. M6 smart motorway speed drops to 40 mph even though there is no traffic or roadworks......and you get very little notice of the speed drop. I see this camera going off all the time

The headlights are different on t6 though so you'd have to get your original indicator holes filled in your existing wings i would have thought .

You cant get T6 style wings for a T5.1, direct replacement. there about £150 a pair unpainted

Really do like the look of T6 repeaters on a T5, it's one of those subtle touches that make people look twice 👀(y)
