    Just in the process of purchasing my first ever kombi (insert jumping up and down here) the bus is registered until June/July this year. owner looking at obtaining RWC should I arrange an independent mechanic to check her out or can you rely on all safety certificates to be legit. Also who on the sunshine coast would you recommend to do this preferably asap.

    Safety certificate tells you stuff all.
    On a Kombi it is essential to have it inspected by a suitably qualified vw mechanic or someone fully conversant in Kombi issues.

    Be very careful.

    What end of Sunshine coast.?
    Matt berry at Cooroy , browns at Nambour, northern volks, Sean at German engineering Bribie island
    About the only ones i would suggest.
    A few i would avoid despite having Kombi in their names.

    Buy with your head.
    Not your heart.

    Welcome to the party that never ends :D

    Some on here may know of the kombi you're interested in so ask for their thoughts by sharing the link to the advertisement with them - Start a Conversation (also referred to as PM for Personal Message) - you can click on the user name in the left panel and it will bring some info up about them so click on Start a Conversation and it will start your message session with them ;)
