    Shhhhhhhhh...... Don't let the other KC'ers know they are only driving sub standard experimental ones, until VW sorted out the right one! :eek:

    As the ad rightfully says, they finally got the body shape right.............

    But look behind that lower blank panel, on the early ones, and you will see it already has all the mounting points necessary, for the ultimate "right" solution to successfully move that body shape, at traffic speeds, on the roads, to resolve the 20 year long Kombi puzzle....;)



    :cool:

    Weren't those bits used to fit factory air conditioning and diesels into the 80-83 series?

    The lower grilles were fitted to the diesels very early.

    Hehe good answer ;) to be fair...when my aircooled motor dies it will get replaced with an ej lump. Though I won't be going as far as to cut the other grille in hehe

    Complete with the arrowhead fixing points in the rear 1/4 panel air intake to fit snorkels. Yep, they got the design right in 1980 and all they needed to do to complete the picture was add a Porsche 914 equivalent air cooled motor with 100+ bhp rather than mess with wasserboxers. I know, it was emissions!!!!!!

    Then why the 4,5,6?

    Weights back over the wheels :p:rolleyes:.
    I thought everyone regarded the designers as omnipotent and incapable of wrong design features.
    Its apparently blasphemy to suggest "upgrading" any features of older models ;)

    The T4+ design is good but they put the driver's seat at the wrong end.
