Looking at doing the usual exterior mods and had the following quotes from Trade Parts Specialists (all prices EXCLUDING VAT):

Caravelle Bumper Front Primed £217
Front Bumper Inserts £17.35 EACH (need 2 - didn't get a quote for the foglight inserts)
Caravelle Bumper Rear Primed £147
Front Door Handles Primed £27.48 each
Sliding Door Handle Primed £20.98
Rear Tailgate Spoiler Primed £144.20
Front Lower Spoiler Primed £361.15!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mudflaps £28.26 per pair
Wind Deflector Pair £27.84

Was actually surprised that OEM parts where quite competitive. Going to compare to other suppliers now and see if I can get some sort of discount for all in. Except that Front Lower Spoiler!!! I'll give that a miss.

Would be interested to see if people have found better deals elsewhere and are happy with the quality. Hope this helps anyone interested in doing the same.T:

Front Lower Spoiler Primed £361.15!!!!!!!!!!!!!£118.45 http://www.palmautomotive.co.uk/acatalog/Front_Bumper_Spoiler_PU_Rim_-_VW_T5_Caravelle.html
Mudflaps £28.26 per pair can only seem to find VW parts
Wind Deflector Pair £27.84 £27.99http://www.t4srus.co.uk/t5s-r-us-22-c.asp and numerous other suppliers with clip or adhesive attachments - not sure which is better

Some prices are inclusive of VAT others aren't so check the websites. Style and quality vary too, thats why I would be interested if anyone is particularly happy with any alternatives. Personally, I prefer the vanstyle front lower spoiler to the other scoopy ones.

Havent seen some of the cheaper products, 1 thing about VW stuff is that its a direct fit, also it is made out of the best materials. I havent seen the replica/cheaper parts but just beware replicas arent always the best option.
