    Is Your T6 A Van Or A Camper?

    Being a Transporter owner for a short while it has been interesting to see how many people are using their vans for different things. Largely is seems that most people who own them are split into one of two groups. Either people have their transporters for use as 'vans" for transporting gear...

    Ordered, But Can I Change Spec Before Build..?

    Van Build Today.......cancelled It!

    So the build date for my Highline kombi was today. Had a think over the weekend about not specifying LED headlights. After reading all the threads realised I had to have them. Worked out that if I added the lights to my Highline, it would cost more than the Edition. Phoned the dealer this...
