We have had two Abbey's (an '03 315, and currently an '04 325L).
we have been more than happy with both vans which were both purchsed new and have proven to be reliable and of good quality. I have heard complaints from some (on this forum) about qualty, but had no problems ourselves.
Thanks for the reply Max. After reading some of the same complaints as you have I started to have second thoughts,but I've seen the Abbey I really like and so your comments have given me some confidence about buying. Cheers, Dave
