    Bought a van

    Thanks for the advice guys. I have done a deal on a 2.0 di sportive van and am picking it up at the weekend. Its a bit higher mileage (159k) than I was hoping for but I cant fault the condition bar a couple of dings

    Probably not straight away but i'm thinking along the lines of an irmscher grille, some 17's, and slightly tinted rear lights

    Nice, looks very clean for the mileage.

    Looks pretty smart! I was considering buying a van for my bikes but it's too much fuss for me, and i want petrol power!

    Picked it up today. Needs a little tidying but it drives really nicely although a little sluggish. Is there much scope for getting a bit more power out of the 2.0di? and the gear stick has a lot of play in it when in gear, I presume it needs some sort of bush? and is not centering very well.
