Here we go then!! Van bought after long period of research, frustration, lack of cash finally found my van. 2001 2.5 tdi 102bhp swb with full service history, 123,000 miles standard panel van with only one tiny dent and a couple of very small rust bubbles which will be dealt with asap. clean cab, nice kenwood cd / tuner, six disc changer and gear stick extension. Clear indicators must have been added recently but the fried egg look is not good so some chrome bulbs have been ordered!!! Few bits of plastic trim broken but swiftly replaced after purchase from T4'SRUS.

The bad bits (of which i was aware prior to purchase) - coming up for 4 years since belts done so new belts, tensioners and water pump fitted by vw / audi specialist in Bristol (R & D) £350. Rattling flywheel on idle - appears clutch and dmf need replacing so booked in for the week after next. £750 but I should then have 80k of happy trouble free motoring with the less expensive servicing issues to deal with !! Has dented my tinkering plans but a good looking van with terminal engine problems is no good to anyone!!

I have managed to retain a little hard earned cash to complete the insulation, carpet lining etc and to have one side window fitted (drivers side) - I quite like the look with just one window and a rear seat will (hopefully) soon be sourced - finding these at sensible money is like getting blood from a stone!!!

I will try and add a few more pics as I go. a few pics below show the story so far. Was looking at alloy wheels but think for the time being I may go down the lowering route first as my origional fit alloys dont look too bad.
