I have finally found my van I was so (im)patiently looking for .... '99 SFA with super low genuine mileage (63 180km) and pretty much stock standard. What would be the first upgrade I wonder?

It's an '89 model, still has the first type local bin, old style cluster and brown interior. Still looks in great shape! Congrats! :thumbup:

First mod is a suspension upgrade. :winkx:
