A lot of chat here about T4's being expensive. I bought my 1.9td on a 51 plate, 80k, fully converted for 6k back in 2008. It's now done over 125k and the only thing I've replaced is front discs and pads and new throttle cable. Although I did treat it to a respray this year. You've just got to look around and keep on eye on ex fleet vehicles at auctions-I eventually flew down to Newquay to pick mine up, and glad I did.
Van for 3-3.5k? T4, HiAce, Transit?
Another thing Tom, the prices can be quite inflated at dealers. And there are a lot less private sales than with cars.
I was lucky enough to find a nice crew cab Vivaro being sold by a local business and got it direct. Save £1.5k or £2k on the average price asked on Autotrader.

I discounted them mostly due to the size, fine for a van to put a bike in but tight for much else.
"1.9td on a 51 plate, 80k, fully converted for 6k back in 2008."
still sounds like a lot of cash to me for what was an old van.
my mates just got a caddy combi - has as much usable space once the seats folded forward as his old T4 did - great thing about t4s is gullible people still pay top doller even when its gubbed as ebay showed him
