  2. My colleague is looking to get the new Citroën Berlingo (5-seater). We have had a Berlingo panel van years ago (two generations back) and it was a shitshow. Going to see if the new one is any better. It’s significantly cheaper than the TC, about the same size. Costs about €24K fully loaded, incl. 20% VAT. It looks a bit like Honda Element and Pontiac Aztek had a baby. https://www.citroen.co.uk/new-cars-and-vans/citroen-range/new-citroen-berlingo

    Citroën Berlingo

    Yes, 3-seater in available, much like the TC: 7-seater, no fold-flat tho. It's an economy solution:

    Add this in your list, it also has cross-reference which other cars have this size for cross-shopping of wheels and possible tire sizes:

    I deleted mine when wrapping them.

  11. I read in another article that Ford has done it before, bolted random Focus body panels on the actual body structure of the upcoming model. This here is much longer than a Focus and the front end is also high. It’s a proper test mule, not a ready made car with some confusing stickers.

    Output to external Amplifier

    Yeah, I had a loaner Custom once. It's a separate product line, about the same size as the smallest fullsize transit but probably a bit smaller. Takes some effort to climb in the cab.

    I doubt the Connect and Custom are identical.
  15. It is weird that the Gen2 is lost on wet grass while my Gen1 was a capable offroader.

    CD player removal

    TMC service is free in Europe, it appears to be some subscription thing in NA. It works in parallel with anything you have playing and switches to audible announcement if TA is enabled in the head unit.

    CD player removal

    Linear radio is pointless. Today you can stream music from the internet or just play MP3 from a USB-stick. Or listen to "radio" as podcasts on demand. Or audiobooks. There is no time in the world to consume everything interesting that's available in the internet for free.

    Any Trek fans here?

    I consider myself a Trekkie but I’m not sure I would go that far

    Hello Guys

    We're not too knowledgeable on full size Transit matters tho.
  22. They’re better than stock halogens but require a bit of aiming. The H7 socket is not fixed by anything else than just the ring, clicked in place. Now the projectors are aimed too low in their normal position so I did some bending of metal to aim them right. First I just turned the aiming screw to level them right but the high beam was too high then. So yeah, not really plug’n’play. I might probably go with big HID projectors that require cutting and automatic leveling mechanism for the rear axle + headlight washers. But thet will either happen when I find a cheap pair of extra headlights or when I don’t need a van for a while to take it off the road.
  23. I've been thinking of leaving the diesel team for a while. Recently the local dealer has dropped the price of some models they have in stock, including the 1.6 Ecoboost van. Going to make the decision tomorrow. It's dark blue LWB, Trend trim level with a tow hook, mud flaps and a rigid bulkhead, 3 seats in the front, alarm etc. My colleague suggested me getting a Transit Custom instead but I'm not ready to drive a mid-size van, too "business" for me.
  24. Turn signal side repeaters are mandatory in Europe. They are mean to be seen at all angles from the side. That's why they bulge, not sit flush with the body.
