I spent longer hunting this down than any vehicle I can remember. I travelled far and wide to ascertain whether or not to go for the more classic and cute T2, which is gorgeous but not if you actually have to drive one anywhere. Or to forsake the nostalgia and go for modern cool and 100mph plus. This is how I got to the T5, though the story didn’t end there. Next was the decision to go new or used. I went for used to see if we got on before perhaps going bespoke for 2015. There are various power options, the 180bhp auto box being the dream. The best I could find in the two months I gave myself was a 140bhp manual with only 17,000 miles and one owner. The result was BUZ as he is named after his number plate suffix, and the best all-round vehicle I’ve owned. Whenever I’m not testing a car or treating myself to one of the old brigade, the T5 becomes my daily driver. From now on I will always have a T5 in my life and it may well always be the one we already have.

New from £36,238
