Both. Only use the van for my private work and getting me around, lucky enough I live at work so dont use it to commute or work from daily

Used for work and going to and from work but also for fun. Because its for work doesn't mean you can't have fun modifying it!!!

Yep mines for work but I'd rather drive my van than the mrs shitron DS3.

It's a work tool. I like it looking good, it's important with what I do, but I'm not obsessed with modding it and it'll always still be a van. I'd never choose to drive one as a lifestyle vehicle over a car, I don't get that at all. Although to be fair, Just Incredible has hit the nail on the head - I'd rather drive my German van than a French car!

I use mine for work and pleasure, but i'm not a builder or anything like that so it dosn't get bashed about and dirty with materials, if i didn't need it for work i'd still have a caddy as my vehicle! :mrgreen:

Plasterer, van used at least 5 days a week for work, think its important to turn up to jobs in a nice looking van, mines not modded much (yet) :roll:
It's been brilliant on fuel around town and can fit a surprising amount of gear in the back when it's in an orderly state!!!!

Work van but I spend half my life in it driving all over the country doing installs so why not have something you feel good in.

Mines a work horse but due to the nature of my work it has to look as clean as possible. I do have some mods like 19" bbs ch reps and have loads more in store but i cant get too carried away so i dont give out the wrong image either

Mine was a workhorse too.
It's good to arrive in a nice clean van though
