    Hi all,
    I would like to introduce myself. I have a VW T4 based motor home which I converted in 2012 over a number of busy months. I also have a Land rover Defender 90 which has been kitted out for personal holiday / adventure travel. Both vehicles are used for camping holidays in the UK, Europe and further a field in the case of the Defender 90 I am also a member of a Defender forum, from which, one of your members gave me, indirectly the web address (thank you). Being a retired design engineer I am always interested in enhancing/improving both of my diesel babies.

    Regards to all
    Peter B

    well one out of two isn't bad...:) personally I wouldn't touch a(nother) VW made within the last twenty years! How a company can trade for so long on their "reliability" which was based solely on the mk 1 golf I shall never know... Must confess that I had a lot of fun in my T3 Synchro though (mind you even that needed a new engine because I "put oil in it". Terribly underpowered and overstressed that little turbo diesel).

    Had a great 90 Landie up until last year (my 5th...), built up by a guy who now does paris-dakar stuff and eventually bought back by someone who helped him with the build originally and used to take it green-laning and really wild camping! now have a disco (v8) and nobody waves :(

    Welcome to the forum, I think you'll have to pay membership after one more post, but genuinely worth it for the vast array of knowledge and experience that there seems to be here!
