@Benny88 have you driven the van since its been lowered. Im torn between going full kit on the front or just springs. How do you find it rides?
How much lower is the front and have you got alloys?
A picture maybe?

Alright mate

I personally love the ride, iv got it fitted exactly as it come as both sets dampers are adjustable it’s like a little go kart now Image
Springs do need to settle a little more then I see how the look then bud but I any go up another notch on rear shackles.

I’m also running 18 TD 1.3

Looks good. I'm hoping to pick up some alloys over the weekend. Audi a4 sline le mans I think.

After I have these want to get it lowered. Just checking out my options.

Your van does look nice on the m alloys.

Got it back after it being at the dealer for 6 weeks. Warranty replacement of the gearbox, which had to come on a ship from Germany.

Does anyone know how to change the wiring on the cig lighter? Power is permanently on and I'd like it not to be so to not drain the battery if something is left plugged in 😬

I removed the power wire from it, ran my own wire from the fuse box that is switched 12v and put that on the cigarette lighter.

@Philnanks those lights look great Image

I sprayed my rear badge and wiper delete. Back end looking a little better. Not sure what else to do there. Will probably get some blanking plates for the rear windowsImage
