    Levelling ramps, easy to use with DSG?

    I am thinking about getting some levelling ramps. However as I have never used them before I am wondering how easy/difficult it is to control driving onto them with a DSG box. My worry is the risk of driving straight over them and if you did is it much of a disaster, which Im guessing depends...

    Ramps for wide tyres

    Can anyone recommend a pair of ramps to suit 275mm tyres. I don't want the low rise versions & I've seen a set of plastic 3T high rise (200mm tall) ones on flea bay for £70. Open to suggestions though.. thanks

    T6 Servicing - how often?

    I’ve read Dellmassive’s excellent post on servicing but I’m still unsure what to do. I have a 68 plate Kombi which is for recreational use only (less than 10K Miles/year) and I understand VW no longer do service books. Do I rely on the vehicle to let me know when the service is due or should I...

    Servicing - dealer or indy?

    My T6 is now over 3 years old but recently converted to a camper. It was serviced last August so I will have to think about getting it done at sometime. Is the VW VC service cost worth it as I could get the next 4 + mot for £799 + the dreaded VAT. Thats 2 interim and 2 full. I was thinking of a...

    Advice And Service Recommendations Please

It now has 7.5k miles on it and the service indicator shows it needing an inspection service in 33 days. Am I interpreting that correctly ? I don’t want to invalidate the warranty...

    Vw Service Book

    Hi, I purchased my 2017 T6 3 months ago from VW in Abingdon. Noticed I didn’t get a service book, they’ve said you don’t get one anymore as the service info is kept digitally on a database... Does this sound correct?? Thanks guys

    Looking for service information on what gets serviced and when... Have seen the post that explains when you should get it serviced (mine is on the flexible system but will be doing it annually) When I was looking into these vans the internet seemed to think the 4motion haldex should be done at...

    Ist Mot And Service

    My camper is due it's first MOT in a couple of weeks. What are peoples thoughts on using a VW approved garage rather than VW themselves to carry it out? I'm planning on keeping it for a few years but it will likely not do more than 2000 miles/year. It would be far easier (and cheaper I suspect)...
