    buying conversion or already converted?

    Hey folks! I'm after a T6 camper, with the standard conversion kit. May also consider T5, if the price and spec is right! We're not after anything too fancy or modern. Hoping to spend no more than 35k (which seems a challenge looking at the value of some) rough spec: T6 2015-2018? mileage -...

    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...

    Is it possible to track progress of my new T6 Kombi online? I have the vehicle order number from the dealer but it isn’t recognised on the myVW site when I put it into the appropriate box.

    Dealer Won’t Change Spec

    I ordered my van 2 weeks ago and still don’t have a confirmed build date. After doing some reading on here this morning I emailed the dealer and asked him to add the LED head lights as I do lots of night driving. He replied saying the system won’t let him make any changes and he was “locked...
