      Those new Ram's from earlier on are simply rebadged RoW Fiat's. You can fix the ride by fitting de-rated rear springs...that's what VW did (and still do) to the Transporter to make the Eurovan. ...

      They are right.

      VW now considers the early T4's as 'heritage' cars so is beginning to make reproduction parts for them. It's worth keeping an eye on outlets like www.vwheritage.com in the UK as...

      BMW
