isnt ready yet.. still got project zwo front bumper/spoiler and arch kit to go on.. plus a projext zwo grille.. some clear lenses, uk number -but german plate ..and a final tinker with the ride height...

rear tyres have been upped a bit as the 225/40/18's were a tad too small on the sidewalls ..so i upped to 235's and a sidewall rating of 98  ... remember boys and girls  all tyres are not created equal.. if you are arsing about with weight .. you need to consider the ratings.

i got out of the played out t3 scene ....

couldnt bear the thought of my bus being 'inspected' by hoardes of other owners at vanfest ...

 at least with this .. no one will snoop round.. they will just assume we are a pair of old duffers in the typical old duffer t4

 

yeah ben has bought it ..  as he is a friend, i left all the goodies on and with it .. even fitted the intercooler system for him ..

welcome too T4 world Steve where you will not drive in fear of side winds or suffer from wavers cramp,although we all love T3s they suffer one problem and that is the fact that its younger brother the T4 is the best van on the road ,i know they dont have the character of a T3  but ive been running T4s at work for 12 years and done over 400,000 miles in them and have never once broke down in one ,in fact none of my work vans including my 2 year old T5 have never had anything but service work done to them ,with the T4gipsy you don't have to worry about leaks or wood rot eithier as they are mainly fiberglass/grp .nice

martins right about van fest though just don't go ,i ain't i personally think its over hyped especially after just coming back from bugjam where everything is about entertainment and not just taking your money,where else would you see a bay window running low 13s,monster trucks ,freestyle moto x,stunt planes,stunt cars and men dressed as bellydanacers complete with recorders trying to entice you into there tent

any way heres my T4 colorado,along with my mates gipsy and my mates RHD westy up in the highlands
