    Am pleased for you, what is one of them?

    I'd certainly want it to do the ironing and the washing up for that price, whatever it is!

    Tomsett Kent of Sittingbourne. They have done a few London vans and quoted me £2066. Worth a look...

    Do you mean a particulate filter by any chance?

    but will it still be covered in, say, 5 years when the emission limits are probably reduced to cleaner air coming out than that going in ?

    crazy thing is i can legally drive through London (I'd sooner poke me eyes out with blunt sticks first:Eeek:) in my 6.8liter petrol engined, 7500kg RV belching out god knows what lethal carcenogenics and there nowt they can do......yet!!! :thumb:

    We decided against having the filter fitted and are getting storage instead for £520 a year. This was mainly because as John says they could change the goal posts again in a few years. For Info we live just 200 yards inside the LEZ Zone.:cry::cry::cry:

    Now if anyone wants to store their LEZ Compliant van on my drive:Rofl1::Rofl1:

    particulate filters are not a fit and forget item they will need cleaning out.
    on modern car's this is done automaticly by a prossess called regenaration,on a after market filter it will need serviceing and cleaning out,easy to do by removeing and pluging one end and filling with aloy wheel cleaner,and leaveing overnight,empty out and clean away excess with a pressure washer:thumb:
    dont be fooled by diesel jocky's trying to charge a fortune for a new one:thumb:

    Same here pappa, but there's so few large petrol engined vehicle's about that I don't they will ever bother until the time when they ban all petrol vehicles inside London.
