    102 With A Full Conversion .. Advice Please.

    Hi all. Possibly selling my GTD estate to enter the camper world and although I really wanted a 150 I just cannot afford it. I’ve found a dream spec 2018 102 (dream spec apart from the 102!) but I’m scared I will instantly hate the 5 speed? Coming from a DSG 184 GTD isn’t going to help matters...

    Advice on buying T6 for towing

    Hi all. I have a Highline 180 DSG Kombi. Does anyone know the approximate towing weight capability of the van? I have a leisure trailer that should be around 1200kg loaded which I'm sure it can easily tow. It is more a question of being legal. I took a look on the internet and nothing obvious...

    Finally, She’s Arrived...

    So, after a wait that felt like a lifetime, I collected my new (to me) Camper King van. It’s a MY17 T28 102 Highline with the “Santorini” conversion. First impressions - love it!

    Fuel Economy, 102ps Or 84ps

    So, lots of folk aren't happy about their mpg in the larger output engines, but what about the the 102 and 84ps? There're keeping quiet don't you think? Are they similarly annoyed, or do they hide a secret? Are they getting amazing mpg, and does anyone remember the Bluemotion 114ps T5.1 that was...

    Is Re-mapping any good?

    Hi Just bought a 66 plate t6 camper, it has everything i wanted apart from the fact it is only a 102 bhp. My previous t5 was 140bhp. Seriously missing the power. I have heard that re-mapping nowadays is pretty good. Does any one have thoughts on this please?

    T6 or T5.1

    I am just about in a position to buy a van. My plan will be to convert it to a campervan as money allows. I have looked on the VW commercial site and seen some nice T5.1 vans and also some T6’s. So my question would be, is there be any drawback to buying a T6? Are all the conversion parts the...

    am looking to purchase a van for conversion and would appreciate advice on the engine options.

    i am looking to purchase a van for conversion and would appreciate advice on the engine options. The majority of vans for sale are 102bhp and i wonder if this has sufficient power for a conversion. Is the extra cost of a bigger bhp worth paying for? Do drivers of 102bhp vans find them ok or...

    Power Upgrade

    Keen to look at pushing up the power output of a T6 180 DSG 4 Motion but want to be able to remove any evidence in case of warranty issues. What's the best option?
