Have just fitted this chip to our VW T5 Kombi van (2ltr 130BHP) as we weren't quite getting the performance we wanted......currently under evaluation so will upload a short film in due course to show you the before and after...but so far so good :)
Having recently purchased this new VW T5 4MOTION Kombi Van thought we'd do some nice 'before' images as we are planning a transformation into a camper/day van over the coming months..... We have already affixed front and rear mudflaps, cab window wind deflectors and rear bumper load protector (nearly 10 deep scratches from dogs and bikes within 4 days!!!) Next job being the rear windows which should be going in end of the week, and wheels are fairly high up on the list (but our children need feeding first apparently!) Keep watching guys... A full album of i..
Snazzy new windows have transformed our new VW T5 Kombi van from a commercial into a more domestic vehicle. We opted for Volkswagen spec windows so ensure they matched the other side windows - looking good, ......now for some wheels! ..
After much deliberation we finally chose the new wheel for our VW T5 4MOTION– especially given where we live and our daily roads/lanes – decision was made for weight rated 17” Ronals to which we fitted a Maxxis all terrain tyre 225 - 60 -17 this is a perfect wheel and tyre size combo for the VW T5 4MOTION as it stays under 28” overall diameter thus not having an detrimental effect to the Volkswagen systems or gearing. ..
We did have a chuckle in the Coast VW workshop when we removed the interior rear panels. Bare in mind our VW T5 is a 'Trendline' which comes with 'extra soundproofing measures' !!! Now that we have fully soundproofed side panels, floors, doors etc in Silent Coat Extra 4mm - can't believe the difference in noise level. Just waiting to decide what interior panels to fit before we insulate the rear wheel arches. ..
Well that should keep us busy - we have splashed out and bought a VW T5 caravelle interior for the VW T5 4-Motion, the seats and rails have been stripped from a brand new Caravelle but the interior panels are by Trimtech and have been designed especially for the Kombi vans - we have obviously fitted after market rear windows so not sure how easy it'll all go together...we'll all soon see :) ..
