I was considering fitting 15mm wheel spacers to the rear wheels only on my 4Motion.
I'm sure I've read somewhere (maybe on the forum) that this is not advisable for a 4Motion. Please can anyone confirm this for me?
Hi guys , i managed to be lucky enough to get a t32 4motion 180bhp as my work van off the bosses for being a good lad, 3 years old now ex demo direct from VW dealership, had 9k on the clock and was ex demo, still had the stickers on it so i was thinking shes safe bet. Recently had the clutch...
New Transporter ordered. T32 4motion Kombi. Was advised by dealer that any increase in wheel size above 18” would invalidate the warranty. Is this right?
secondly-was thinking about 18” alloys (20” look good but 18” is fine for me). Would I need to change the suspension set up and if so -How...
I took the Caravelle to Sainburys earlier and the thing sounded awful, a whirring noise on acceleration and steering. I've attached a clip to demonstrate the noise in question. The return journey was completely normal. Any ideas what's going on? The car is new to me so go easy if I've engaged...
With all these discussions of suitable load rated (860kg+) T32 wheels and the constant checks of suitability and questions such as
"What is that wheel on your van?"
"Is that suitable for T32?"
"Will that wheel fit my bus?"
I thought it may be worth starting a 'sticky' dedicated to this...
Has anyone had issues with T32 4motion 204bhp, bought one just out of warranty in the summer and all though it has full service history with vw and has had fly wheel ERG changed has been towed into Vw as has broke down making a terrible rattling sound ,

Hi all the gurus out there.
I have swapped my wheels around to distribute the wear on the tyres and one of the outer boots has got a hole making the rim and the back of the brakes a big greasy mess.
So I have to replace the outer CV Boot.....the part number on the boot is 7E0407285B /...
hi guys just after a bit of advice. does anyone have any experience driving to ski resorts in their vw? thinking more Europe. if so, would you recommend a 4motion T6 or just a normal 2wd with all terrain tyres with option of snow chains for worst case scenario?
I know that this has been covered before on this forum, but I remain confused on speed restrictions that apply to 4Motion vans.
From reading previous posts, it is clear that there is agreement that if a vehicle falls into the scope of "Dual Purpose" then the legal speed that it may drive...
Due to change of job I have to sell my much loved Kombi. This van has a huge spec, and is still under VW warranty.

I spoke today whith friend and he tells me , as my van is 4 wheel drive I need a special 4 wheel Alignment Tracking done.

My T28, has been converted into...
I want to put 17”x 10” rims on my new transporter. What does the offset/ET have to be for them to fit?? It’s a T6.1 4Motion. And Can you recommend a place to by rims (steel/alloys) in the UK? can’t find anything in DK
I sent off to have my Kombi reclassified as a camper today.
Started off with the info and sample letter here:
Converting a vehicle into a motorhome - GOV.UK
and then added in some photos and receipts for the bits / work done.
Hopefully it will be back soon and I can drive at car speeds again.
I’m planning to order a 199 6.1 DSG van but I really can’t make my mind up on weather to spec a 4motion or just keep the 2wd as standard. All the reviews only talk about it’s ability off road, not how they handle on the road. It’s a work van and also my only vehicle, it won’t really be used off...
