    Got a new Van.

    Had it a week now and I must say I'm chuffed. It's a Company van, and is a massive improvment over my Transit 90bhp Ally backed Luton.

    Its been replaced with a New Transit 140bhp fibreglassed Body luton van.

    I will get some pics up, but must say, Its good they have kept some of the good things from the older transit and impreved them with the dash layout, and the new engines pull excellent. Hits will easily cruise in 6th at 85-90 fully loaded.

    some minor down falls, as the lower trim levels dont come with traction control or electric windows, would have thought t/c would be standard fit on a 140bhp.

    And theres not a suitable cup holder to hold my cans of red bull.

    Any way thought I would say as Im pretty chuffed with it lol.

    I hired a Transit on Monday to clear out my folks garage and I was bloody impressed tbh, was a new model 07 plate. Having the short gear lever on the dash is such an improvement for a start and it shifted pretty well for a basic model. Overall very nice and easy to drive.

    suprised you havent got TC brett mine has???

    Be aware of loads of problems you get with them though - mine has a missfire at present, 2 recalls, noice coming from the flywheel (I think) and the smog out of the back is getting worse.

    Its going back in a couple of weeks to get it all done under warrenty, I will send you a link to the transit form so you can keep an eye out for potential problems

    PS - know what you mean about the redbull holder! - do you like the laptop tray though ?? ??
