    I do love T5's

    Then the price for mileage done kicks in. They are so much money. But I still want one!

    A ridiculous amount for a whole led unit, as to led lamps they have the electronics built in, a lot cheaper, but there is good & bad versions out there, plus some cause problems with beam pattern,etc due to the orginal light unit design & are not legal.

    Have thought about the T5 on several occasions as a work van but .......

    I don't know the first thing about surfing!
     
  15. Wow - niiice, Sparkie.

    Are these the original seats? They look really nice.

    Where's the bed?!

    Back seat most likely folds out to make a double bed.

    Wonder whether driver/passenger seats have revolving bases.
