It's funny, you can feel the wind correct the back end when it steps out :lol:The 850 probably is half a ton lighter, and considerably less brick-shaped :lol:
Looks great! I love the beautiful bi-xenons contrasting to the pressed-steel wheels.
Those are getting thrown out as soon as the tires are worn down - then i'll put winter tires on the summer rims and get some nicer summer wheels.It's really a small detail, but I love the hubcaps. Seeing that sort of larger VW logo there seems to add a little sense of lightheartedness.
If the 8 decides to break down week before ringmeet, maybe.Taking it round the ring?
Thanks stiggieRick hasn't posted because he's too busy swooning, methinks :lol:
Sweet van, Adrian.
It's not slow per se, it's a very quick van. But it's not fast.. I'm used to slightly more oomph.And you're also one of not many people calling a 180 PS / 400 Nm Turbodiesel "underpowered"..... well, considering what you're used to...
Man, I love those things! In my opinion the coolest van available over here in the north. Congrats!
edit: Just realized that the lift thingie isn't based inside the car but under it. How much does that lower the ground clearance? How about the winter, how is it protected?
The ground clearance is OK, i haven't hit anything yet. The lift is not protected by anything.As said before on IRC, sweet van! How's the ground clearance on this thing, because it looks like there's not much left with the lift under the car like that, looks like you'll be scraping speedbumps.
Indeed. Some day i might regret not getting the TSI though, but oh well..But as far as vans go, it's probably second only to the Vito with the big V6 CDI.
