    welcome to AOC and enjoy the club! Sorry to hear you've had problems with it, but I'm sure the mk4 buffs on here will be happy to help you out to sort it. What mods do you have planned? I've seen quite a few lush mk4 "work" vans around and even subtle mods can have a nice effect and are very eye catching.

    A good first impression can be helpful for business too, as a well cared for vehicle invokes a little more reassurance that your work is likely to be a bit more careful than someone who can't be bothered to even look after their own posessions If 2 workmen turned up, one in a rust bucket and the other in something which was clean and tidy, I'd be more likely to employ the tidy one as hopefully he'd treat my home/car etc with the same level of care. The trick with your van though will be to strike the right balance and not go too boy racer-ish with it, which can be offputting to more elderly customers.
