    Many people who are new to VW vans here but plenty who have moved from a T4/5/5.1.

    So show us pics of your old van!

    Ours - a 2012 180 4motion with the majority of extras. Had some superb times in it including a week in Mull and two 5 week Euro trips but the damned engine started getting annoying and it ended up spending more time at the dealers than on our driveway. Sold it with 22,750 miles at just over three years old. Vowed never to get another, sold all the extras (expensive bed topper, roof cover, etc), bought a T6, had to buy them all again!!

    Pyrenees

    Northern France

    And on our "home" beach of Polzeath in the Winter (mulled wine on the hob)

    In all honesty they were the worse wheels I had on the van. So heavy 19kg on the 17x9.5", same as my 20s and rust so easily from kerbing as the lips stick out on them.

    But looked great.

    Here's my last van- i really miss it. Much as i like the T6, i preferred this. Before this one i had one of the first T5's, a 174, which was such a bad van it didnt deserve a pic. t5.jpg
