Anyone actually bought a Caddy for 2K?

Anyone got a Caddy bargain? For £2K or there abouts!

Would be interesting to know age, mileage, condition, etc. when purchased (Pictures even better!) Who's got the nicest Caddy bargain out there?

Mine was around £2.5k, does that count?!

Bought last summer. It's 2008, lunar milage, but very clean and well maintained. Bar a split vac line to the brake booster it's been reliable so far...

I just bought a 2010 Ex-BG maxi with 198k on the clocks for £2450 .. 2 owners, seems well looked after starts and drives basically like new. A few cosmetic problems and surface rust on paint chips etc but good price id say. Gave the cabin a bleach clean but will need more attention as had some black mould in the back. :mrgreen:

Great thing about a dirty van is the dirt reduces it's value and anyone can clean profit back into it.

Absolutely, and for me High Milage is a sign of good servicing. Cant reach 200k without some luck or reasonable maintainence!

Cheapest so far and some genuinely valuable mods. 176K doesn't even seem that high at that price.

it did have a few issues that the previous owner forgot to mention like
missing anti roll bar
bottom engine mount bolt snapped
no spiggot rings
and exhaust snapped
but other than that its ok and i can fix the bits

Missing anti roll bar sounds pretty important to mention

Not quite 2k but I've just bought a 2009 1.9tdi for £2600.
177k miles but very tidy. Booked in for timing belt and water pump in a couple of weeks, plus a full service.
I love the raw power and delivery of the engine! Id rather have an older van anyway, rather than one with all the modern guff that they all have now.
