    I've just fitted some custom plug and play front component speakers. Supplied by Peter Preston at www.skiptoncarradio.com
    Excellent little kit with VW plugs for door speakers, pre wired crossovers and tweeters, with plugs for the standard VW loom, and some soundeadening sheets to do both front doors.

    He does a few options. Basically depends on how much you want to spend. I'm a bit skint after buying van so went for the cheaper end of things. I got the Pheonix Gold set, seem more decent build quality and has improved to sound. I think the sound deadening worked wonders tho. The new speakers defo handle the bass better but I don't know if your T6 is the same but my doors buzzed like hell when volume up even slightly higher. But now it's sweet as. No rattles at all. Give him a shout and say I mentioned him on hear and he'll look after you.

    Had some work done by Peter and his fellas last week (new front speakers, Shark fin aerial,and plylining and carpeting rear), all good quality work, just wish I'd have found him earlier.

    Peter (and Dave) at Skipton Car Radio get the thumbs up from me too! I went for the Phoenix gold too. Wasn't inclined to upgrade the head unit too. Being the cautious type, I thought I'd give my set up a few days to bed in and then post my opinion. We had a couple of issues......one of which was my doors leaked after the speaker upgrade. I'm not saying it was they're work......probably coincidence......but even so, Peter came out to my home to seal behind the speakers! He said he's seen it before so wasn't surprised. Time and heavy rain will be the judge of whether he's sorted it or not.......but for customer service, I'm giving them a solid ten out of ten!!!!!!!

    It is Pauly......I offered the guy some money as a goodwill gesture........I can't say for sure that he'd caused the problem ( I strongly suspect not) for his 50 mile round trip.....he wouldn't hear of it! He's a good guy for sure!!!!!!

    Hmmmmm........from what I'm reading, VW KNOWS it's cornered the market in "premium" vans so doesn't need to try any more! When you consider the recent emissions scandal.....my god, they're arrogant!
