Merry Xmas lol
Matt I understand the practicality of a van, but I loved that Landy, it was special, especially with all the work you put into it. I trust she found a good home.
To all, have a festive Covid season
Hope you've had a good christmas!
So the van! It's a 2019 T6 t32 Kombi Highline SWB, 150bhp 7dsg.
Tailgate, comfort dash, captain seats, split rear bench, front and rear sensors + camera, heated seats, heated screen, electrically assisted closing doors.
Picked the van up looking very basic.
First job was to fire the 20s and roof rails on, because you know...roof rails. It looked ridiculous on 20s without being lowered.
Next up it went to a body shop to get the sportline bumper and rear spoiler fit. A big improvement.
It then went on to be sound deadened, insulated, carpet lined, lights and speakers fitted along with a leisure battery and swivel bases on the front seats.
I then moved on to doing a very basic and simple fitout for my trips to Scotland hillwalking.
Bought a plywood shelf kit and painted it up, made a bench/slide out bed and curtains. That's where I'm up to so far.
Just waiting for the shops to open again tomorrow and I'll be taking out the third seat and building a removable kitchen unit of sorts!
yeah i loved the landy, still did but i've learnt from the S3 to not get too hung up on a car....its just a car, so the van will let me focus on the walking more and save a lot of faff!
Went to a fisherman in cumbria!
aye its a good job, because its gonna get used
sold the roof tent and awning seperate, let it go as it was yep
OH! how could I forget, the lowering of the van. I was undecided for a long while whether to go cheap with lowering springs or splash out on coilovers.
After considering the roads this van will spend its time on mostly, Lake District, Yaaarrksha Dales and the Highlands I opted for Bilstein B14 coilovers and I'm glad I did, handles very well now, rear is a fixed height which is basically tucking the wheel and the front is adjustable.
Also fitted Lazer ST4 lights in the front grill, I hate driving in the dark without proper lighting now. Also in the process of changing the headlight bulbs to Osram LEDs as I hated the poor looking halogen bulbs that came on the van...wish I had the fancy oem LED headlights!
- I still have mudflaps and side bars to fit to the van, and possibly a front splitter
Looks great mate and yeah l think oem led headlights would have been the icing on the cake

yeah its a shame i couldnt really find a van with them at the time, im a sucker for DRLs!
At the time of searching I was originally after a bamboo green one with LEDs, bad to find so went for grey with LEDs, also bad to find so just went with a decent spec in general. I could buy a pair of the headlights and get them fit....but its ~£1200 for them without fitting
Have you considered these??
Now its getting the treatment it's looking good mate.
I had, but not them ones in particular!
Saw these at the Camping & Caravan Show in February at the SECC.
Some ideas for you
No idea why the pics are rotated 90 degrees sorry
