    Menace meets his end.

    So there's a proper ramrod local to me in this remapped Red LWB T6, every time he sees my van he does something tw*tty.... like buzzes me at 30mph over the speed limit or his latest trick which if he sees me coming towards him he swerves at me a bit....always with this big smile on his face...

    Any Lawyers on the forum?

    Last night the storm blew down a fence that the farmer of the field had erected behind my fence. It’s knocked my fence down and broken the concrete post and other bits. Will he have to pay and how do I go about getting this resolved. He is a complete £#*(=£- so I am anticipating a battle.

    Would you let the van speed limit put you off buying a T32 LWB Kombi vs a Shuttle?

    Hi all. About to purchase a van, narrowed it down to a LWB T32 Kombi for £29k or a Shuttle for £26k. Same age (2019), both DSG and similar miles and spec. Kombi advantages to me would be the number of larger choice of mods, camping pods, converters, roofs etc and this particular one has a few...
