    You'll need to put some off-road tyres on for the sticky gaps, those boots will just spin under the power of her.

    Well wear by the way ! A sweet machine , a mate pulled into the yard one day with something like it and I asked him to let me have a cut in it to try out the air bags ! I've never seen him leave the yard as fast :lol:

    I might have to dampen down my expectations on the Caddy replacement. Cut back a few hundred horses . I think this one's a lot more of a stockmans car.:yes::yes::yes:

    Now you mention it jd. There could be an opportunity for you there, supplying Towbars for them top end models. The seem to be scarce :scratchhead:
    There's an old e class here in the haggard with a tow bar. I'm sure a few sweet pucks of the sledge would make it a perfect fit .:Thumbp2:

    I saw 2 caddys today one was '14 1.6 105bhp the other '15 1.6 75bhp. Both in good condition just looking for advice on the bhp and anything to look out for.

    The 75bhp would be seriously dead I'd say

    The 75hp tends to be heavier on diesel unless you are using it under 50km at all times, I would prefer the 2.0L especially if you want to tow a trailer, may not be available for the years you are looking for.

    I didn't get to drive the 75bhp but the 105bhp was lively. I was buying berlingo or partner but having driven the caddy i think it's in a different league altogether

    I was talking to a mechanic one time and said if I was changing from my 08 1.9tdi caddy to be sure to go for the 105bhp. Says the 75bhp was very sluggish. Yea I think the caddy was well ahead in the older years anyway. Never drove the newer ones but a friends has a 08 partner and mine is a 08 caddy and both me and him much rather the caddy

    Better advice still would be to hold on to the 1.9 TDI for dear life!

    Would it be best to wait until Janruary to buy a second hand van because there might be more traded in for new ones?
