Hello all,
Just joined.

Wife and I have recently purchased a 55 T2 - yellow/white with flower motifs Cool (sorry no pics yet, but will add).

Both brand new to it all, although the missus queen  used to have a Beetle (if that counts?).

Haven't driven anywhere with it yet due to work, etc.
Anyone got a list of sites in Devon/Cornwall worth driving to for our 'maiden voyage'?

Hope to meet up with like minded nutters/owners Laughing

PS  Anyone know what the tyre pressures should be please?  Have looked over internet and seen various answers, so I thought I'd ask the experts Smile

Welcome!! Bude/Widemouth Bay is a regular destination of mine - in decent weather that is!!

I normally go for 35psi up front and 40psi at the back.

Hi and Welcome to The Forum for Brazi Bays - Scooby doo like a yellow Kombi - pics soon please.
With regard to locations - we like Padstow and St Ives - areas made for our Kombis.
(See some campsites at the end of the link below).
Hope to see you and your Kombi in 2016
The Kombi Sleepover next year at the end of May is a must - plenty of Brazi chums to meet and greet.

Welcome to the forum. We often nip to Fistral Beach, head along the Jurassic Coast, Blackpool Sands nr Dartmouth and zip along Torbay.

Hope you enjoy Elsie.

Thank you Scooby.

Not sure whether the flowers are staying or not, as some are starting to peel Rolling Eyes

Hello from a fellow yellow! What good taste! Hope to see you around. We have been to Ilfracombe but its a bit hilly for Bumble. Absinthe will be along soon to say hi no doubt perhaps with a link to their St Ives blog.

Hi Absinthe,

Nice piccies.
Looks like you enjoyed yourselves.

I'm sooooo lucky that I live on the doorstep (Exeter) as I can go anywhere in Devon and Cornwall (and Dorset and Somerset of course), for the weekend. How lucky is that???
