  1. I didn't see you mention it earlier but when you did the thermostat did you replace the temp sensor as well? The gauge waving around is a classic symptom of this failing, the 1.8's are usually furnace-like after 5 minutes of driving and are normally showing a solid 90 degrees on the dash fairly quickly.

  3. The A4 is doing fine, I've done over 3000 miles in it now with absolutely no issues. [emoji106] Sent from my Pixel 6 using Tapatalk

  5. Glad it's doing you a good turn, it's looking good. Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk
  6. I am currently running a 2015 Caravelle 140, it's done nearly 300k and is genuinely like new, it was used for taking old people to the European ports to join cruises in its previous life. It's got history for every part changed and its all main dealer. I got it for a steal in 2019 and it's a lovely thing to drive about, previous to this I had a T4 and the improvement over that is huge. Very car like to drive, 35-40 mpg and great visibility for a modern. It's a 7 seater, full leather tri zone climate etc. There's a lot of dislike for Volkswagen and their supposed poor quality but I've had a lot of different types and swear that a well maintained example is hard to beat.

  8. Is that a Sergio Tacchini Panda? I remember my mum having an H reg one that she px'd a Skoda 120 lux in for. Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk
  9. Looks like a nice example, is it a blue or silver "I" ? I had an 88hp 2.5 which suffered from the classic stanadyne injector drip/unstable idle problem. New ones were comparable in cost to the stamp duty on my house, eventually I found a guy on a T4 forum selling units sourced from United Diesel for a fraction of the cost. They also gave it a significant hp increase (something like 25ish) I had it remapped in the end which got me a rolling road print out for 149bhp and 360 torque. Great old vans and I really miss mine, I have a newer caravelle now which has nowhere near the character of the 5 cylinder one. Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk
