VWt magazine issue 27

Welcome to VWt Magazine issue 27.

Think you’ve got a low T4? Think again. We feature the lowest (possibly) T4 in the world! Also this month: We take a look at an all original T4 Panel Van that is too good to tamper with, a low… no, really low T5 rolling on 20-inch Porsche rims, and a fully converted Pop-top T5 GP living it up on the beach. We also investigate what it takes to change the colour of your ride with a nice new paint job as well as looking at the latest wheels you can buy and what you need to look out for.

On sale date: Friday 6th February 2015

Inside VWt Magazine issue 27:

  • Factory Fresh – T4
    Some vehicles are just too good to tamper with, and that is certainly the case with this low mileage, all original, T4 Panel Van
  • Aiming Low – T5
    Typically, when you’re aiming for something you aim high. But Iain Dickinson’s aim was quite the opposite – low, really low.
  • Bad altitude – T4
    Let’s stop all the arguments and draw a line under the constant, ‘such and such’s is lower than that’. This is the lowest of them all.
  • True calling – T5
    Everyone loves the association Vans bring with the great outdoors, but few people can truly say they act upon their desires the very moment they wake up at the beach.
  • Road trip
    Water-bound beach bums head to France for a two-week long Campervan, surfing and cycling adventure.
  • Understanding Alloys
    There’s far more to choosing the right set of wheels and tyres for your T4 or T5 than just the design or finish
  • Shop tour: VW Heritage
    Massive. That’s the only word to describe VW Heritage and, with T4 spares now on the books, it’s a growing business
  • How to: Paint your ‘Wagen
    The VWt overview on colour changing your Van
