    Try Ebay, stacks of decent vans on there, just watch out that they include/dont include VAT...

    Bought mine from VW Colbourne at Guildford. They supply a lot of transporter with extra options fitted, a/c, etc.

    Mine is a 1.9 tdi t30 102 lwb with a/c, electirc windows, mirrors, bulkhead in metallic shadow blue.

    The 2.5 130 is an excellent engine, but i wanted to keep running costs down and buy a nearly new one with low mileage.

    Bought mine out right, so can't help on you finance, but if you have any other questions then fire away.

    How much did you pay and what was their service like, also what servicing costs/schedule on a van?

    Thanks for any info!

    Paid about 15K including vat, there service was excellent, the guy even sourced my van that afternoon for a test drive. But they do not do any deals on price, as there turn over is very good and they are quite reasonably priced already.

    The 1.9 85ps is aweful, very underpowered, that's why i went for the 102ps which is quite lively, but not ground breaking lol.
