Confuddled

Postby Lurchersand1cat » Sat Jan 09, 2016 5:02 pm

Hi all,

I bit the bullet and bought a new gulp, new van. My first new van.

It's a:
270 custom
2200rtdci
hi roof 100ps

My question are, are the the same size as a 58 swb medium top van and I thought I was getting a transit L1 H2 not a custom and is there any difference baring the trim on roof?

The garage is closed for the weekend and I have just received the receipt in the post and it sent me in a spin.

Customs are the same size as the older Mk7 SWB, and I thought they only came in low and medium roof, but that must be wrong if you have a high roof :!:

Mk8 is a bigger van, and only comes in medium and high roof (in the UK)
1997 Mk5 SWB 115 Minibus 70ps Di (Gone, but not forgotten!)
2004 Mk6 SWB T280 Medium Roof 85PS 2.0 TDDi - Vantunered (Also gone)
2008 Mk7 SWB T280 Medium Roof 85PS 2.2 TDCi - Also Vantunered

I blooming well hope not I specifically asked and they said same size
though I did think it looked like the Mk8
I was able to buy the transit L2 H2 for same size but just a bit too big however starting to wonder if I should have gone bigger

I measured myself the one I thought I was buying ( the paperwork may be wrong or I may be mistaken re what is what) and it was the same
