3.7 litre MK8 Transit spotted

Postby sigtravel » Sun Jun 10, 2018 8:37 pm

I was parked up in Edinburgh yesterday waiting for passengers to come back... a red MK8 came past with the reg EU17FLK. A check online shows it as being a 3.7litre petrol minibus.

Wonder why its up here? Couldn't tell who was driving etc or if had any passengers. Photos should be below

Low roof, is that a lhd? Hard to see from the pic?

Could be a foreigner?


Is that up the Royal mile?

I'm pretty sure it was a right hand drive, but definitely a British one as it has a UK reg plate which began with E. 99% of Ford vehicles that begin with E are Ford HQ ones that were registered in Essex. It passed me as I was parked outside the Museum
