  1. All sorted now thanks to CB.. And it is clear
  2. £2700 gets you a new BiTurbo CFCA engine form TPS, just make sure he blanks off and maps out the EGR as that the cause of the problem.
  3. Im looking to buy a VW Transporter that is currently on Irish plates. It was a UK (N.I) registered van, then went to southern Ireland for a short period. I do know the original UK reg no but that does not exist any longer, so if it can be done using the chassis no or maybe the old UK number id happily throw one of you guys a pint or two. Thanks
  4. Legally I dont know where you and he stand. Morally Id have just given it back, Twat or not there is nothing wrong with good customer relations.
  5. Seems a tad harsh to me, a few days holding the car isn't the end of the world. If you have held it for a couple of weeks then fair enough keep the deposit.
  6. Id love to find vans with no VAT. A no VAT van means VAT margin for me which is a fair difference in my favour to what the VAT man takes.
  7. I have a bike policy and trade policy, Bike insurance has 8 years NCB and trade is 6 years. You cant use a bike NCB to trade policy. However if I had a bike claim then my trade policy would be effected!! It only transfers when it suits them
  8. Well I know what to do if I ever find myself in court.. Just start to cry!
  9. Guy I know had one and the phone fell off the wall. Not my bag but they have some kind of weird following... Peados and Doggers is my guess
  10. I would if someone asked for one
  11. I use quickbooks, I found a lot of it gobble de gook and made a good few mistakes. I just keep it simple. Photograph and upload receipts then match to banking. I create quotes and invoices, my account tried to get me to do Classes which allowed me to bunch all expenses to a particular camper. But as i tend to buy in bulk this became hard to start breaking down. I use excel to work out my profit per job, how much I need too put aside for VAT, Tax , NI and how much I'm allowed to keep.
  12. She has a horse so cant say a darn thing. I have a tweaked 1199s, do the odd Euro trackday. Got three days at Aragon in about 6 weeks.
  13. My personal bus is a bonkers crazy 200bhp Red Italian with two wheels
  14. Personally I've never had an issue, like any brand & model you will always have a the Friday afternoon ones that. Never done a TSI, VW have stopped doing them.
  15. Absolutely no chance, Its a world of pain I'll avoid. I did look in to it, with the idea of leasing brand new vans, build over the winter, rent out over the summer then sell in September and pay off the finance. Before we even get in to renting to the general public the insurance is very costly, You need an emergency van spare just incase one gets trashed, short term leases dont give you the V5 so I couldnt change it to a camper on the logbook All Seasons do some nice vans.
  16. Not at all, there is now three of us, Im booked up till start of May. T6 came up at the right Money, offering it on here to see if anyone fancies a go.
  17. Just bought a T6 SWB on a 65 plate 47k miles. It will be built to a high standard and with quality components, Crash tested Bed, Double seat swivel base and Poptop roof, Dometic appliances, No MDF or Chipboard furniture, No cheap crap or cut corners £22500 + the Vodka. I can go as lairy or as mild as you want on the colour scheme, (Bright colours and glosses = more wow factor) Dont bother trying to get CAP guide on these things, buyers are totally lead by their hearts, I've never chipped on the price of done vans or a conversion. £29995 on a pitch at the start of summer is realistic
  18. Its not far from me, I might go and view it, Then have a look at the car
  19. Many moons ago I used to stick the Christian fish sticker on the back, National Trust sticker in the windscreen and tune the wireless in to Radio 3... Smoke and mirrors my friend, Smoke and Mirrors
  20. I wouldnt buy anything from Burnley EVER
  21. Stuck it in the corner of my unit out of the way, pretty much everyone who saw it commented on how nice it looks etc etc, and the more I looked at it the more I liked it.. So its now in my name with my Plate on it!
  22. Do you want to buy an RS4 Cab?
