Mine starts to whistle from that kind of rev range, but I wouldn't call it a whine. I love my turbo whistle:)

Cheers guys appreciate your help! I love my T5 so far apart from the fact when I went to pick it up nolt all the things I paid for have been done and have now been told they can't be done which is annoying - after a 2 hour drive home from garage the parking sensors are no longer working and one of the rear bumper reflectors has fallen off! So upsetting as I've been waiting for a month for them to prepare the van!
One of the things I had fitted was also 'Front fog lights' - I am now very confused as these were sold as 'Fog lights' however I was told when I collected it that you cannot fit 'Fog lights' andthe lights that are fitted are driving lights that only work when full beam is on - Is this true or am I being fobbed off?

There are several other things but I don't want to go on and on...

I am going to call the sales man tomorrow as he wasn't there when I collected it and hopefully rectify some of the issues if anyone can help withthe fog light question that would be great.

Shame as they seem like such a brilliant place to buy the van from hopefully they will be able to help and keep that reputation.

Foglights can be fitted to anything. You need a new headlight switch and a relay, job done.

It sounds like you're 2 hours away from Transporterland to me. I'd say walk away, this is too much BS to get before you've even driven away in the van.

+1 Bobley... sounds like over promising and under delivering on a grand scale..... check paperwork to see if what they said they would do was written down reject the van until all fixed up or possibly walk away....

Hi mate sorry to hear your problems as owning a new vehicle is supposed to be a happy experience. The fog light bit is utter rubbish i'd say that they probably only had those or thier supplier cocked up. I would ask for it to be rectified or money back to get it done yourself and offer to post the driving lamps back to them once you have it done. It is possible that they don't have anyone there who is able to wire up fogs so easy option is slap a couple of conectors on to the main beam wires. Some companies annoy me they are very quick to take your money then have no backup and hope you get fed up with ringing And then they get away with it. Lot's of Woody's out there COWBOY'S.

I can't help but feel a little down - however I have compiled a little list and have left a message for the slaes man to call back.

I would like to say also that I didn't buy it from Transporterland.com before they get any bad press for this when it wasn't them.

Thanks for your support guys I now just hope the garage are decent and either fix it, reimburse me and I'll have it fixed or something else gets sorted.

Did they offer any warranty on the sale? If they have not done something that was supposed to have been done write to them and indicate your willingness to involve Trading Standards if necessary.

Good luck, stay positive after all once it is all sorted you will have a blast T:

Well had a lovely little chat with sales man this afternoon he is sending me several bits and bobs that are easily to replace by myself (one of which is a new spare wheel - not sure how the one on the van passed the mot)

He is also having a word with his boss to see how they are going to over come the issue with the fog lights ( I want a caravelle switch) Also have said that with regards to the multi locks that I paid to have removed that haven't been they can either give me the money back, give me a third seat for in the back or soem shiny chrome running bars.

Lastly (off top of my head) I have registered the issue with my now not working parking sensors (they beep once then do nothing) with them so that when I cannext go to them they can fix them (if not before hand)

cheers again guys
