Hi Dave,

I've just recently got an Ex SKY caddy maxi 2014, seems to do the job just great, well looked after with FSH.

You’ll get a decent van for that money mate. I spent that on mine when I first bought it.
Or is that just your modification budget?
Things can get expensive quickly on here!

I can see it becoming more expensive every time I look at the forum ha!
I like the blue colour of the BG vans so looking at one of those. Look nice with black wheels

If you haven't bought it yet, search for injector issues. Not trying to put you off mind, I love mine but it seems we have to live with this threat :D (yes, I know, it can happen to any car, before I get bombed out!). Mate just bought a 2014 1.6tdi ex-fire service. Injector went after one week no real mileage. Second one went another week later. It DOES happen!

Does anyone know if the injectors problem is the injector fault, or the engine itself ruins them?
Ifbyou change all injectors in a row, most likely you wont have problems related, right?

The injector fault is related to the insulation breaking down on the unit itself and casing an open circuit, they are not damaged by the engine. You could change all 4 for the newer type, but personally, I think it’s an expensive fix for something that may never break. I’d just change them if they fail.

It’s your call mate. The newer injectors (part number 03L130277S) are more reliable, but of course, not infallible.
