I’m sure a lot of you will know these already. New owners… maybe not. So here are a few of my favourite, subtle upgrades that make a world of difference. Modifications I’d like to think Westfalia / VW would include if they were still making these vans today. They’re things I’m so used to now that if I ever bought another van I’d make these changes straight away.
Let us know in the comments if there’s any additions we need to have on here.
Square Headlight Protectors
Stop those rather expensive headlights from any nasty cracks.
Twin Windscreen Washer Jets
Double your squirting power, you know… like modern vehicles have.
Fridge Vent with High Quality power/USB points
Get some power up the back next to the seat/bed where you need it most.
LED Dash Bulbs
One of the cheapest and simplest upgrades, and boy what a difference it makes. While you’re at it why not replace all your van’s light… we have replacement LEDs for all your lighting.
Westfalia Grey Shower/Tap upgrade
Swap between shower and regular water flow plus have the added versatility of being able to run the shower out of the kitchen window to use it outside.
Westfalia Table Stowing Brackets
Get the front table out from behind your drivers seat and stored up back out of the way.
Intermittent wiper upgrade
Enter the modern age… in addition to fast and super fast speed add the ability to adjust your wiper speed to suit the weather conditions.
Westfalia Front Table Leg Step
Give yourself (and your kids) a helping hand to get up into the roof.
High Power LED Headlight Upgrade Kit
Replace your tired, dim headlights. It’ll be like day vs night once you’ve experienced the difference these make to your night driving.
Under Seat Storage Drawer
Make use of that wasted space underneath your front seats with these handy unobtrusive lockable drawers.
Terrawagen Terrapodz Day Time Running Lights
Why buy an expensive and hard to find South African grille when you can get a set of Terrapodz?
Keep a look out for Part 2.
