Anyone owned a T5 Transporter?

You could get one of these if you want to try out vanning - cheaper than a T5 because no scene tax, RWD and a 200bhp diesel V6 - yank the fuse for the traction control and you can get as enthusiastic as you want...

They did a 220bhp version as well but those seem to fetch daft money for some reason.

I was looking at one of these last week in a van dealers place. I had to look twice at the price as I've been blinded by what I've seen t6s for. Suddenly 10 large seemed reasonable for what I was seeing. Then I remembered I don't have anywhere near 10 grand, and if I did I wouldn't be buying a fast airport taxi anyway.. 😆

In traditional AS fashion I have ended up not buying a T5 and have just left a £100 deposit on an unseen Mk7 Transit Jumbo and paid £75 for a train ticket to Preston tomorrow.

Its fully converted and even the log book is changed to a motor caravan, if it’s not an absolute shed when I get there I’ll have bought quite literally a massive bargain.

 

Fully prepared for some rust as it’s a Transit but we shall see. 
 

ps. The BMW will be staying for obvious reasons

Fred bump. I'm assuming this is ridiculous grot for a 2010 Transporter? It's a well specced van but it's not pretty. Mot history is surprisingly clean.

I’m back looking at them again too 🤦‍♂️

 

I’ve seen a couple of these starting to go in similar places now, depends how deep it is I guess, looks slightly more than surface in places

Agreed. I get the feeling it could be a bit of a Pandora's box once you start poking the crispy bits. Shame, as it's a nicely converted twin slider, facelift van.

I keep looking at them, especially as values have supposedly eased a bit since covid madness. Thing is, they all seem to either be shitheaps or £20k+ vans. There doesn't seem to be much in between.

A neighbour's 2011 Passat is also suffering sill rot, so I'm guessing it's TADTS for VW stuff of the era.

Surely there are better vans, maybe not even needing a tribal tattoo to drive? 😉
