V6 or 2.5litre diesel
Blacked out windows
Unconverted inside (factory lay out)
Clip on the back for bike transportation

Is Michael Smiley doing a second series? Perhaps he should buy his own now :)

Is it possible to get younger than 2003? Why does it matter that much I wonder.

The factory burnt down in 2005 so they might as well say 03-05
Keep Calm and Bongo On!

Don't know why the 60,000 mile figure is relevant. I would have thought being in good condition and having / not having AFT would be more important than mileage and year.

This won't be worth it.

Let them buy their own and sell it after filming.

Hi folks.
The company is going to hire my Bongo again.
As Simon has said, I did have a good experience last time, so here's hoping the same will be true again.
From what the producer explained to me, it seems that the Bongo will feature more heavily than it did in the last programme.

Good wishes from Leon

All went very well with the hire, and the van was returned washed and valeted.
The production company was a pleasure to deal with.
They offered to do a service beforehand. Luckily nothing needed done; in any case the Mazda dealer to whom it went wouldn't have known how to service it.
The programme will be broadcast next spring.
:D
