Just put on the discus wheels and cross climate tyres from the old Beach, but all the low spec cheapskate headlights, rear lights, fogs, radio and dash all look good. IMHO. Floor not quite a match for the doors but better than the Ocean sea of grey cupboards...so hopefully back to UK for these definite upgrades:
Twin trackers
Spare wheel lock
Remap Revo 199HP
Debadge Coast, California side and rear
Steel floor safe
Kampa 4g data wifi with aeriel in / on roof
Wrap top half in white, black door pillars
Waeco in boot as freezer
Flush portapotti in cupboard under hob
Security film

Maybes
Revo brake upgrade
LED Lazer driving lights in grill - will see how standard items are

Excited! Just need lockdown to end to go get it in Germany :(

Looks great. Have a beach coming in the same colour. Happy to pop across the border and look after it for you until U.K. opens up, no charge!

Very kind offer! You can pop over and pick up the new spare set of cool multi spoke steel wheels sitting there...

EEAFA545-B107-4F22-91CF-41DE0F975CC5.jpeg

If of interest this was my cheapskate spec

EUR 0 Both front seats swivel/ turn round

EUR 236 Extra front window in canvas, so 3 windows in pop top / basaltgrey

EUR 469 Wood floor

EUR 1.538 Auxiliary heater ( no remote needed)

EUR 0 Cruise control

EUR 0 Plug in 230v

EUR 274 Comfort mattress

EUR 65 80L tank

EUR 581 Cheapest parking option with front and rear sensors

EUR 257 rear camera

EUR 37 Rubber front mats

EUR 878 Komfortpaket Climatronic

EUR 0 Sitzbezüge in "Mixed Dots"

EUR 693 Akustik-Paket

Paint no charge

Acoustic glass gave privacy glass and opening side window too from memory so worthwhile plus my old 6.1 Beach was whisper quiet so was worried it might be noisier/ less insulated

Why is it a cheapskate option? Looks like you've gone for quite a few additional extras

I like the steel wheels.
Why didn't you get an awning, i thought they were
a better deal ordering from new.

The wood Coast interior looks better than the grey Ocean, but the steel wheels look better than the white discus on a red van imo

the bottom wrapped red.

Ah well then it’s the discus every time the van has white on it. Tremendous wheels

I love those steel wheels! But already had old set of the disc alloys with lovely cross climate XL tyres on so have to put those on.

Don't like the look of the VW awning, too 1980’s caravan, prefer a Van non camper look, plus batwing type 270 degree awnings better

Looks very nice :)

Thank you.
A few options there true...no LED lights inside, free paint, base front and rear lights, no remote for heater...just really wanted either essential for me or essential for resale - no frippery

Looks fab, will look even better wrapped, I think the front bumper is improved if front fogs are fitted.
It does look a little bare/ deleted around the foglight area I agree.., practical for bumps and scrapes but still rather bare, black plastic...adds to the "don't charge me extra for the Eurostar and please let me into Monaco it's not a camper honest" look I wanted

I wish the guy who sold me the Coast told me it came with the super cool steel wheels that I'm thinking I might even prefer to the discs....anyway too late

Winter tyres on the steels, keep the discus looking mint?

Disci already fitted with pricey all season tyres otherwise I would...but good thinking. Also 18’s might help with front brake upgrade. Revo guy just mentioned he thinks 2021 6.1’s have SMALLER brakes than 2020...cant be true. Anyway will find out :horror:

The old 6.1 floor didn’t work for wood floor loving Danish wife - formed an important part of the “let’s order a £55,000 van during a global financial meltdown Darling” sales pitch

Those are 16" stock wheels so yes the brakes are smaller. There is an option to upgrade the front brakes which works well with the 17" Aracaju wheels on the Editions Pack Coast.
I also have a T6.1 LHD Coast or order. Are you registering it in the UK? Have you enquired about insurance? I'll have to investigate this myself depending on my country of residence in September.

Not registering it in the UK, as we have left the EU. Resale back to the EU (quite likely whenever it’s sold again) would require EU VAT paid on top of UK VAT. That’ll kill its resale value. Plus the huge yearly UK road tax. Have made non UK arrangements for insurance as UK insurance policies cannot offer - no matter what - road risks for anything not on UK plates.

Bit disappointed I’ve got weeny brakes and missed the upgrade option...

Have decided that the two tone white over red with the white Discus wheels isnt for me anymore. The wheels looked fabulous on the white 6.1 but the basic looking Coast with no foglights has so little chrome I'm going down the Red Van with no chrome blacked out look instead...so I'll debadge, a tiny bit of black only wrapping to the B post and chrome grill bars and get meself some pimped black transporter looking alloys instead bruv' that 'll look bangin' as well as making my £55,000 California look very like a £25,000 VW transporter. Plus there might be a glimpse of the big red front brake upgrade through my new alloys unlike the Discus cover all option.

The rear sticker I bought wont look good either so that'll be going too 1614426665971.png
