Default WTD: Early Bay swap for lovely T5.1 140ps 6sp

Just putting this out there:

I decided to sell my EB last year and buy a T5, it took ages to find a good base with low mileage with the spec I was after, but eventually I found this VERY tidy 2012 T5.1 140ps 6 speed (the one to have!) in December.

I then had it carpet lined, altro flooring, a Cannon Forge Rock and roll bed fitted and trimmed to match the front seats. LED lighting. Brand new wheels and tyresand 40mm H+R lowering springs.

It has only 38k miles on the clock, the first service was with VW and the second done privately by previous owner (just an inspection service). It is on long life oil so next oil change due circa 40k, the cam belt and water pump should be done at 140k miles/4 years so this is due too based on time, but certainly not mileage

I had every intention of kitting it out further to make it into a full camper, but the truth is I'm missing my aircooled roots and it leaves me a bit cold, and it's at an ideal stage for someone to put their own stamp on it.

If anyone has a very solid, as original as possible (unless with VERY comprehensive resto history) Early Bay Camper that they would like to do a deal with, please get in touch.

It is a great van and obviously very tidy given the mileage, value wise I'd put it a circa 17k.

Any more photo's or queries, please let me know...

Take it easy....
