i did look for the thread before posting, dont want another scolding in the first week! lol theyre not all dirty, some of the merc vans are sweet! saw a BMW dealership van was a merc sprinter, just think they could do some sweet engineering and solid build quality. there are a lot of business owners that have bmw's and would get much better services and deals on their own cars if they had a fleet of vans!!

Jaguar didnt make a van. Nor did Aston Martin. And there are a good few others who didnt either. They do sporty cars and build them to high standards. You imagine a Transit van. The price of them new I dontk now say its £15'000 for talking sake. Bmw make one which will be double that at least. Thats why.

aston dont make 4x4's nor do jag or super minis! bmw are more commercialised than the other specialist companies! mercedes are expensive vans but good quality also. from what i can see they've never even done a promo one off, just thinking aloud

exactley they would clean up, i am sayin that bmw could do much better than mercs. i dont mean a builders van but larger 8-16 seater sprinter types for roadie vans etc!
