    Hi All,

    I have been looking at the new 2015 Swift/Bessacarr 400 series. Nice looking vans although I can't get access to any real decent pictures just yet. Anyone know when the Swift website will be updated with the 2015 models? The new spec and cab has resulted in the 462 Bessacarr model being uplifted by approx £5K from the 2014 model. Add on the "Auto" box and associated Lux Pack then is goes up to around £49K. For this you get the standard van plus, new cab chairs, a new wood grain finish, new locker handles and dimmable under-locker LED spotlights, walnut trim to the dash, cab mirror covers, map pockets, omnivent, vanity mirror lighting, robe lighting, reversing camera and wind-out awning.

    What's your thoughts on this price for a Swift van as I know opinions vary somewhat?

    Any guess as to how many vans Swift will take to the NEC show in October?

    Hi , We have bought a Bessacarr 484 2014 (avatar), cost £44. we like it a lot , some of the things like the lighting a bit ott i,e, back lighting of kitchen splash back & and more mood lighting than's necessary etc, cushions and mattress a bit soft (personal preference) other than that so far we haven't had a problem, other than with the Fiat side which is on going & bits that the supplying dealer got wrong ( no comment).

    We bought a new 496 in June. A few teething issues. Watch out for the Fire Angel smoke alarm which was condemned in a recent test. Ours broke so we replaced it with another. Also the hand brake didn't work. Don't expect the same back up and after sales customer care you get when buying a new car.
    Tip; ask for a BIG discount!
    You may be surprised what you get off
    Regards
    Robert
