better late than never, NEW 16 Plate Blue100 hdi chiller van
#1
Well what can i say, after 3 great years with our 63 plate chiller van (90ps) getting up to 147,000 pretty much trouble free miles.
We have bought another one , this one being a 16 plate Blue100 semi-auto, only had it 10 weeks and we have gone over the 10,000 miles mark,

Pictures to follow soon .

so far all good, much prefer it in manual mode, if trying to get a swift move on it has a habit of dropping a gear putting you out of the power zone into 4000RPM of the gear below in A, in M it only drops if you do foot to floor past the natural point of full throttle theres a stiffer bit past it,


couple things, do they have smaller fuel tanks on the ADBlue models etc




here are some pictures

yeah, you could say that, paid salary and no paid overtime, but always over my hours lol so i buzz about in my vans, upto the speed limit, we have trackers that track speed etc so wouldn't speed etc

love how i can now do 70 on dual carriageways, as we have no motorways here in east anglia

currently at a crash centre, assessing whether it's to be written off or not, it didn't drive to well on the way back to HQ, cruise control didn't work ,  and worse than the fact i really liked the 24,000mls since September is my neck is killing me and im in this massive thing!!

Glad you're ok apart from whiplash maybe. You were hit at speed though judging by the photos.

Wow that a decent ammount of damage! Need to keep a close eye on your neck now you could well have some damage there?

Hope you get everything sorted soon - its never nice when you have a RTI especially when its not your fault.

Blimey - if you were doing 40, how fast must she have been going, to make a dent that big?  The general visability weather-wise looks ok in the photos.
