Unicyclingtom's work van mini project!

Recommended Posts

We have been looking to replace our 2001 Ford Transit it's got a drink problem for a while now and we also had a 2007 Citroen Berlingo [ghey.gif1]

So we were looking for 1 van to replace the two, good on fuel and still a bit of load hauling ability (we deliver 25kg bags of salt as part of the buisiness) so we need a bit of power to get up some of dorsetshires finest hills :D

After a short list was created, there was this Van that stood out the Nissan NV200 1.5TDi with 110bhp

We were originaly looking to get the SE spec, but after a few phone calls we have managed to get the top of the range NV200 N-Tec, with reversing camera and cruise control as standard for the same money as the SE :D

Going to get some alloys though the wheels look silly, they are only 14" [smash.gif]

I would get a new van to go with the wheels tbh ;)

Only joking mate, vans are about ticking the boxes whn it comes to what it is going to be used for.

That said, it's not a looker is it?!

Nope! Ugly as sin, but the concept one was stunning!!

But I spend more time in the van than out of it and the interior is very nice.

I think black alloys are as far as it's going to go!

Any pics of the van or the stickers?

Nope just looks like a small white van at the moment, finalising designs for the sign writing today and sorting out the ply lining before she is cristened and launched. Drives nice and is quick for a 1.5 TD :o
