    I have to do a bit of a review for @BognorMotors, after being so impressed with their whole operation.

    As some of you already know, I made the 360 mile, 6hr round trip from Leicester to Bognor Regis today, to have Oli and his team install my long awaited B14s and H&R ARBs.
    Some people might think that's insane, specially when I have some really good installers here in the Midlands. Well for me it's more about the feel I get from a person that's doing anything to my van. We are all a little precious with out T6's, but i'm extra paranoid with mine, and would of travelled double what I did today if I thought it was the right thing for me. I paid a horrendous amount of money for my van, and I only want the best most trustworthy people touching it, so Bognor was the only choice for me.

    Upon arrival I was greeted by the enthusiastic Oli, and his proper handshake :thumbsup: followed with a bit of T6 waffle, a little banter, and off I was sent in what I can only describe as the most INSANE vehicle I've ever been trusted to take:eek: The 300bhp TSi. This thing spits and bangs like a rabid dog on steroids. This beast alone made the trip to the South coast well worth it. Any TSI owners need to hear this thing, you will be hooked! As @Captain Backfire found out when I shot over and picked him up from his posh office, and tore off together like a pair of hooligans.
    Anyway, 60 odd miles of pure fun, and nearly £50 lighter after refilling with V-Power as instructed, I returned this thing before I lost my license.

    A couple of hours sat in their waiting room, several coffee's later, and watching this place tick like a well serviced Rolex, I was informed my van was on the floor ready to be inspected.
    I want to pay particular homage to the master tech that worked with the greatest respect, on my van. He could see how polished she looked, and knew I was Mr Fussy. He gave me a full tour of my B14s, and ARBs, a full road test to make sure I was happy, and after several dumb questions from me, I was all finished.

    B14s fitted, full drop on the rear, 7mm left on the front, ARBs set on the stiffest setting and I am one happy bunny.

    How does it drive? Like a different animal altogether. I was a little sceptical how good this set up was, simply because I thought mine drove really well on just 30mm VW springs, but this is another level. I think my mud flaps might have to go, and the bar's have already been the 1st casualty on the new stance, catching on his carpark entrance slope, but Oli did warn me... Am I bothered? Hell no, it looks 100% better.

    Thank you Oli, you and your guys are a true testament of how us fussy VW owners should be treated.

    Thank you paul. Lovely to meet you and thanks for your business. Your van is lovely, and even more so with the Bilsteins and H&Rs. Really glad you’re happy with the outcome.

    And you’re right, our TSI Kombi is bonkers, and I get to drive it daily- I’m very friendly with the local Shell garage.

    It was great to meet you @Tourershine, thanks for coming up the road to my work and taking me for a spin in that beast of a TSi. It scared the crap out of me. But sounded so sweet in doing so. I have a feeling mine will get a remap in due course....

    3 Members in 1 day, although @Olly hall only let me meet his driveway, behind his bins, and his letterbox :whistle: So rude. (I couldn't even lift the wipers on his Caravan to get my own back)

    @Tourershine ..... yep ... totally agreed. Oli just get's it. I had the same experience from him and the guys involved with the work on my van there. You've paid a bonkers amount of money for a perfect van and you want it to stay that way whilst spending yet more on customising it. Like you, I was prepared to drive to a business that understands and respects that.

    You went about that the wrong way. I just told mine that I have a lot of kit in the back of mine, hence why it's on the deck.
