Hi  everyone.

Have been  reading the forum for a while now and found it very informative in these crazy times.  I am mainly a van dealer,  but also do a few cars.

Obviously van sales  have taken a big hit the same as cars

I used to do quite bit with ex BT vans,  but the prices  just got ridiculous,  and I'm not a fan  of  Vauxhaul Vivaro / Renault trafic, which most BT vans were.

I Do mainly mercedes Sprinter and Ford Transit, although like everyone  I buy  most things if there is a sensible profit in it.   I try and avoid  French stuff though

yes he's a mate of mine.  lol

I can’t believe how much oil and ad blue the new transit customs take! Makes servicing them really expensive!

Have had problems with Ecoblue engine service lights coming on early due to oil dilution issues but Ford have covered these under warranty.  

From memory the wet services are a maximum of 24 months / 36k but most seem to ping the warning late 20’s.

Excluding the DPF issues the 2.2 was so much better.
