Hi there , quick intro . I'm Rob , living in Lowton , near Warrington . I bought my 1.9 Berlingo Enterprise Van in late June this year and have already clocked up 18,000 miles in it . I run it as a courier van at night and in the daytime I use it for taking the dogs down to the woods in , the odd errand and occasionally to move tools to and from site .

It took a while to get used to the more leisurely pace but it has grown on me . I have a friend in the trade who specialises in french cars so he does all the service and repairs . It's been pretty well behaved over the time I've had it and I hope to add another 200k miles to it at least .

Here it is back in june

I wanted it to look a little less ordinary so I put some cheap 2nd hand wheels on ( with 20mm spacers ) £100 off ebay

Although it looked better balancing them was near impossible I don't think the spacers helped so thanks to my daughter I swapped wheels with her 206 which she was due to part / ex the next day , so here it is now sat on 17" rims & 205 / 40 tyres. Better all round , the slightly bigger wheel has helped the gearing and now getting 70 mph at bang on 3000 rpm (sat nav verified )

All in all a nice enough place to clock up the miles thanks to air con , e/w , c/l and the electric mirror.

Fuel economy is not great but I'm hoping this will be offset by the longevity and reliability of the simpler n/a engine over it's HDi counterparts , although having driven the HDi's I do miss the relative performance
