Over the last few weeks we have been in collaboration with the guys from L.A Transporters and Hartwell Motor Services, with us all having an input into the VW T5 Transporter builds the L.A boys have been carrying out, and although our input is minimal, we just wanted to show people what these boys can do with the VW Panel van, with the Mercedes Vito also on their build list.
There are quite a few VW T5 specialists around the country, but the L.A Transporter guys seem to go about the business a little differently, looking at doing things their own way, yes they will fit the air suspension, but they prefer to fit either a coil over set up, or the H&R 50mm spring drop as most of the customer base prefers, they then add a 9” and 10” wheel set up, 275/40R20 tyres front and rear, which happens to be slightly oversized, but has the correct load index to match the load rated wheels, they are constantly rectifying their competition wheel and tyre errors, of either incorrect, tyre size, wheel offset, or load index, these boys do it right the first time round, no corners cut on any of the parts they fit.
Over the last few weeks they have been converting a lot of the older T5 to the face lift T5.1 conversion, and they look so much better, with the interiors also coming in for some enhancement, with LED interior lighting, rear seat upgrades, leather trims, rear carpeting and headlining, side windows, stainless side bars, they do it all.
For the VITO they have the Wald Bison conversion, as well as the AMG and Brabus upgrades.
We will be heading to the L.A Transporters team over the next few weeks with our very own T5 that we will be modifying, and we will bring the full details as and when it happens, as well as blogging about the new LWB transporter T5 about to undergo the 5.1 upgrades that’s just about to start.
The new L.A website is not far away from launching, so give them a follow and if you need any work doing on your own Transporter or Vito, give them a shout www.latransporters.co.uk
