11k to spend and what common issues

Postby glenandemm » Thu Jul 12, 2018 11:56 pm

Hi guys I have 11 grand to buy a swb custom and I really want a limited, will that buy me a decent custom?
Also any common problems to look out for etc?

Haha, is there a big difference in spec between the limited and the trend pal do you know?
Also the euro 5 engine is that basically the same as the mk7 2.2 or is it different with cambelt over chain etc?

Euro 5 is the same I think
If you can download the old brochure it tells you all the differences but there's plenty of limiteds about
At least there was when I was looking
Of course a gentleman would need a sport

Main differences are A/C and extra paint, but there’s loads of smaller stuff.

Cheers lads, i’ll Take a look but from what I’m reading there’s not too much that I’d be bothered about not having between the trend and limited but I’d like a heated front screen, thats a must in the winter time!!
If its the same engine as the mk7 I’m not looking forward to the usual injector seal leaks :?
Some lovely looking vans and already have front and rear spoiler in my mind and 20 inch alloys :lol:

The custom engine in euro 5 is fine, siemens system not the euro 4 denso that required valves and updates etc. It wants to be looked after though.

You can buy the shitty white base model customs for a lot less than 10k these days.

I would have a limited over a trend all day long. You want nice spec seats, ac, cruise, front and reverse sensors with cameras, colour coded bumpers, metallic paint.
A bonus is sat nav radio and both front displays are large colour lcd.
Plus you'll have heated seats and alloy wheels etc.

Anything less is just cheap drive it to death crap tbh. :wink:
