    Downsize wheel size T5

    Any advice? I have a T5 2014 and the previous owner put on low profile 18 or 19 inch wheels. I want to change back to something to give a better drive and cheaper tyres. Any advice out there on wheel/tyre size and type? Many thanks. Philip

    Increasing The Comfort

    Hi, I have a T32 which I have had for around 4 years. After about a year I wanted a more stylish look so I put some H&R lowering springs on it and some 18 inch VW Dakars.

    Caravelle: Barn Doors or Tailgate?
