i have looked at some caddys and they do hold their money , even the small sdi ones

Just got my new van today.



Absolutely delighted with it, it's quiet, super smooth and fast.

Now that is nice.
Is it the factory Kombi cab, they do seem to hold good money second hand.

Health to enjoy.

Aiden
If you need smaller
I would go mwb/swb with a low roof
Not a lower weight van
Then you can still tow more and carry more when you need to
Fuel economy won't be much different
I've got a few sprinters
Always been reliable
Only had to change centre bearings on the extra long wheel base one
I know of 2 new transit customs and both say not good one the juice compared to the standard older transit

All the best

Not seen that in mine, had the old style as well, and would say their about same same really, get about 550/560 miles off a tank, but as the same with any vehicle, it's how you drive it.

Only ever had vw vans (private use), then when I when self employed a few years ago I got a caddy tdi. Started to struggle for enough space so as the budget couldn't stretch to a t5 I got a caddy maxi. Only 400mm longer but makes so much difference in the back but can still get down tight roads etc.

Thanks,

Yes it's a lwb t32 180 DSG kombi. This is my third kombi, last 2 were swb, LWB is an extra 400mm and makes a huge difference.

I traded in my last van, 2.5year old, and got good money for it. They definitely hold their value.

Just to stop people using Google to search for a spec for a van and clone the plates. Maybe unnecessary but better safe than sorry.
