    There’s also very limited number of Fiat Ducato MWB with 2.3L 130kW engine in manual, I found only 1 available for immediate delivery and 2 Iveco Daily MWB 1 new and 1 used with 4,000km. Also, the LDV V80 were sold out and only 1 on the way to Southgate dealer near me around mid next month. So, yeah if one needs a van today, there isn’t much out there.
    No worries. I note there are a few 2019 or 2020 Traffic 2.0 125kw Premium models at SA dealers around Adelaide ( at least appear to be stock). I had a quick look on Carsales. The Master is certainly not thick on the ground in SA at present unless one can be sourced interstate - probably difficult at present.

    All the best with your search.

    Scott.

    Shame really they don’t come in manual, though the Renault past weekness was the gearbox. I see any automatic except ZF 8 Speed and MB 7G Tronic as something that will cost me a lot of money for repairs down the track. The automatics are often reason why many people fear to keep their cars past the warranty.

    When the time comes to sign some sort of 'clearance' from VW, be very sure of what is in it.
    They may insert that you cannot at any time make a similar claim on VW in the future....on any vehicle.
    Get it checked even if it costs you money to do that.
    Follow up with a claim for extras fitted to the vehicle.
    If necessary, demand all the extras fitted by you before you sign anything.
    If it leaves them with a van with holes in it, tough.
    If it's a known fault they have little to stand on as far as I can see.

    All good now. I’ve picked up Crafter Runner and most likely will trade it in when my 4motion Crafter arrive again in 6months or so.

    Thanks guys for all tips and ideas.
