What is a VW Kombi?

A VW Kombi is a motor vehicle with side windows and also removable rear seats. They are the perfect base van for different types of conversions, and are well worth the purchase! 


What accessories can I add to my VW Kombi?

Alloy wheels are most definitely a must when it comes to any type of van. To put it simply, alloy wheels are wheels that are formed from an alloy of aluminium & magnesium. They come with various different advantages for your VW Kombi such as quicker acceleration, or the ability to stop your van faster. However, it doesn’t stop there! Alloy wheels also provide awesome cosmetic benefits as they make your van much more visually appealing in order to allow it to stand out in the crowd and look absolutely fabulous. We have a range of beautiful different VW Transporter alloy wheels that are available for you to purchase on our website


Everyone’s taste varies when it comes to choosing what they want the bodywork on their van to look like. So because of this, here at Wildworx we are more than happy to complete any unique designs you would like for your VW Kombi. However, before you make that decision, it is strongly recommended that you fix any dents or scratches that are on your van. No matter the size, there is absolutely no point in having your VW Kombi Accessories modified if it is not in pristine condition! But if you are worried about the cost, do not worry. The price to get your van looking as if it is still brand new is a lot less than you think. By doing this, you will then be in the position to start creating your own personal and perfect design! So if it is a half & half respray you want or simply one colour all over, choosing Wildworx to complete this for you will be totally worth it!

Pop top roofs are most certainly an awesome choice for campervan conversions. Not only are they extremely popular with our customers, but they also come with so many different possibilities such as an extra high raise for sleeping or cooking. They can also be colour coded so they match the beautiful design of your VW Kombi, rather than making it look slightly odd. If safety is something you really care about, you should definitely do a lot of research on different companies that produce pop top roofs. It is so important to look for a pop top roof campervan that has gone through careful crash testing to ensure that they are as safe as they can possibly be. We can assure you that all the pop top roofs we offer here at Wildworx, meet all standard safety requirements and nothing is of a poor quality. 


A roof bar consists of a collection of bars that are attached to the roof of your VW Kombi. They are typically used to convey large items such as bikes, canoes, or even large luggage. Sometimes, people like to add roof bars simply to allow for more space in their van. However before you make the decision to purchase a roof bar, it is so helpful to create a list of what you will be carrying on your roof bar so you can reduce any potential damage that may occur as a result of exceeding the weight limit. You can also add different things to your roof bar in order to enhance it such as a wind deflector to reduce wind noise when travelling, and make your journey run much smoother. Roof bars also increase the attractiveness of your VW Kombi Accessories majorly, if that is something you are looking for. They aren’t necessary for your van, but they do make life so much easier. Wouldn’t you just love to be able to go away in your very own VW Kombi Accessories and not have to stress about how you are going to fit all of your belongings in the van?

How much will a VW Kombi cost me?

With a VW Kombi as a base van, you are normally looking to spend between £12k to around £25k. However, the overall cost entirely depends on whatever it is you want to add. This includes things such as accessories, bodywork, and even the conversion. You will find that your budget will control most, if not all, of the decisions you make. 


We are aware that not everyone has an endless amount of cash they can just easily spend on van work. But, that doesn’t mean you cannot have the things you want! If it is a conversion that you are going for and you know that you have the expertise, you should definitely have a go at converting it yourself. This also applies with accessories. If you know that you are capable of adding them yourself, you should totally go for it!



What mistakes do people tend to make?

There are a lot of mistakes people can make when it comes to anything related to vans. Whether they are big or small, you will want to avoid as many as you can. The most common mistake people come across when they decide to purchase items that are not going to benefit them in any way.  Before you start purchasing things such as accessories, it is best to know what they do exactly and why they are advantageous to you personally. If you do this, not only will you stop yourself from purchasing things for the sake of it but you will also potentially save a lot of money. 


Another mistake that you will definitely want to avoid when it comes to van work is not knowing the safety & standard of the items that will be added, and also the company that will be completing the conversion for you. However, here at Wildworx we can assure you that everything is completed to a high standard by our team of professionals, and meets all standard safety requirements.  



Any top tips?

It is always useful to have some top tips at the ready when it comes to looking at things to have installed in your VW Kombi. So because of this, we have decided to create a list of some that we think will be extremely helpful. 


The first one is to always research beforehand. This can put you in a great position, as it allows you to know exactly what it is you are going to be getting and why it will benefit you personally. However, it does not stop there! By researching, you can also avoid a common mistake that quite a few people tend to make which is not spending money on things that you do not need. It may seem quite cheap in the beginning. However, when you eventually add it all up in the end, it can be quite costly. This can actually be really annoying for most people, especially those who prefer to stick to a very tight budget.


Another top tip that we suggest you do, is to have a budget. Obviously the amount of it is entirely up to you. Even if you are more than happy to ‘splash the cash’, it is always best to set aside some sort of budget just to make sure that you are not purchasing things for the sake of it. 


Our third top tip that we like is to do with the company that will be completing the van work for you. What we mean by this, is that it is always best to really research the company in a great depth to make sure that you are getting your money’s worth. A lot of people tend to not do this, and can sometimes be left quite disappointed with the result that they get. So in order to avoid this, we strongly suggest that you read things such as reviews, check out any social media accounts they have, or any other material that you can easily access that will give you the information that you need.
