We do have the initial smell but ours does seem to go quite quickly.Not sure you have different diesel, but with standard UK diesel my heater smells, always has and probably always will. I've taken it to an Eberspacher specialist who told me the smell was normal as well as letting Hereford VW have the van for a few days to check it, (they also told me there was nothing wrong and they had tried another Cali and it smelt just the same). I would be very happy if the smell disappeared once it warmed up but with mine it doesn't.
It all sounds fiendishly clever. Am I being dense but I've watched it twice now and I don't think he mentioned what fuel these things use? If he did, I missed it. I would image it would be diesel as it sounds like development of the compression ignition principal.HCCI engine and a ladder (not sure which is easier for VW to engineer).

We have loved our 3 and a bit years of California ownership, it is pretty well sorted apart from the roof issue. What I would like to see:
- Carbon roof for obvious reasons or at least a new seal without a metal insert.
- Solar roof panels as an option.
- Long wheelbase option.
- Handbrake that allows the driver seat to be rotated.
Given strong European sales why would VW offer incentives for UK models? Just produce less UK and more LHD.
The only competition, the Marco Polo is even worse. Limited 2017 production, very little negotiating room and an almost total disinterest from MBUK to dealer level at bothering to sell the thing. Clearly a take it or leave it market test my MB which we may in turn ultimately see from VW.
Incidentally, your gasp-shock-horror that we may be heading for the £70k+ cali is a little out of date ... I've just priced up Albert's replacement and it is £70k before the 3%.
I’ve just ordered a Marco Polo and so far am very pleased
Got a good discount without any hassle and the mb staff have been excellent. True, they do not have experience with Campervans so cannot be expected to have all the answers but they are more than willing to find out answers to my questions and I am training them too!
My brother in law has recently splashed out on a Reimo T6 conversion - 204 DSG 4Motion LBW high top. He was too embarrassed to admit exactly how much it cost, but after plenty of grilling I'm pretty certain it cost £70k.Well as GJ has said my view on pricing is subjective. However, with those regular price rises nudging an Ocean closer and closer to the 70k mark. Will you still think that is reasonable?
Transporters are undoubtedly more expensive than any other vans on the road in the UK (not sure about the Vito)?Problem is do they really care about the UK Cali market?
If they did, they would have sorted the dealer network out years ago.
Is it even significant for them? Compared to the van market...but even the vans are markedly more expensive...

but residuals are miles above anything else on the market so if you're going to sell in the future you get your money back.
I recently sold my T6 High line 140ps lwb - bought in March 2016 for £21k(+vat but i claimed that back as a business expense), and 18 months later with 14000 on the clock sold it for £20k so only lost £1k in that time.
Compare that to a Renault Trafic which you might as well throw away after 5 years for what it's worth by then.
