    image.jpeg Never had the opportunity on the custom as they had a waiting list for new vans so a pre reg was a no go.

    Managed to secure a very good deal on this connect. Go to pick it up tomorrow.

    Basically worked out £500 cheaper than a brand spanking new one. But it's a limited so nearly a £2000 saving!!! Over the new ford price of the lesser spec.

    Next up is another custom OR maybe the ugly transit lol. If only they did the low roof version in the UK :)

    Some decent deals about. Maybe coz of brexit hahahaha :D

    Apparently it's the only ford engine where you don't have to add the Eco blue stuff. The new euro 7 engines have two seperate tanks! So it pumps in some form of solvent to keep stuff clean. Only £20 per 5000 miles though.

    Connect doesn't need it. Custom does now !

    Yeah that's it. Was shocked when they told me that lol. 2016 custom needs it. They are having a refresh in 2018 he thinks. Mine will only be 4 years old then. So I may just chop it in then. Dunno.

    Had it washed and waxed today and I forgot how clean it really is. Still gonna treat her to A pro valet tho.
