2015 Transit Connect Deep Impact

Postby Kidman » Fri Mar 18, 2016 5:08 pm

Here's the replacement for my old Mk7 Transit. Already one 5500 miles since November and I dont even do mobile work anymore..

It's a 95PS or was, until the VanTuner got his hands on it. It's now around the 130PS mark, with torque around 310NM, pretty lively now.

Looks like a normal Connect, but we have a row of seats in the back which can be removed. One of the reasons I sold the Mk7 was because it lacked practicality and we needed a vehicle I could use for work, or take the kids out in, it does this perfectly.

It's a Trend, so has enough bits and pieces, the only thing I would of liked was cruise control.

Drives just like a Focus! Very refined, smooth, handed well out the box.

But I have already improved it besides the map, and added Eibach lowering springs and a set of 16 inch Alloys which dont look too out of place for aftermarket.

A few bits of colour coding next, followed by some nice subtle sign writing and its done. Great little van, a world away from the Mk1 Connect.

You get used to it after a while. The interior is great, nice and modern, great head unit with DAB/Bluetooth. Most of the time you forget you're driving a van!
