Only a few months MOT left for now.

I'm surprised you haven't sold your van - it's stunning :)

Good luck with it :)

I'm fairly new to the astro myself but this group doesn't seem very active.
If you want to sell the van better on ebay etc or the facebook group.

I would second that, like many other forums this one used to be really busy with regular daily posts but Facebook has basically finished them, So yes the best route to selling a van would be ebay, piston heads, auto trader etc. etc. But I hope you both find buyers I notice some "fresh imports" are being advertised on ebay for silly prices of 8k.

Just to let everyone know, we sold the van eventually. Someone saw it at Tatton Park, Stars and Stripes American Car show. He wanted to convert an Astro to accomodate his daughter in her wheelchair. He was downsizing from a G20 or similar size van.

Well the buyer certainly got a very smart van with unique paint job and as he already had an American van I am sure he will appreciate it I am glad to hear you managed to sell it in the end I hope you won't miss it too much as it's so handy to have a van for moving things about!
