French T4 just moved to Norway :)

Post by GABLB »

Hei guys!

I'm sorry if i don't speak your language yet as we just moved from France to Trondheim only 2 weeks ago.
Our T4 2.4D 1994 has only 470 000 km :).
He already spent a lot of time in northern Norway, Sweden etc but, as we live in Norway now, i want to upgrade it to stay safe, especially in winter.
We are on the process to import it and just put tyres with spikes on the four wheels but i want to:

- upgrade the headlights, installing a headlight wiring loom upgrade and Osram Night breaker H4 lamps
- find a second hand push bar

Here are my questions:

- where can i find this kind of wiring loom upgrade in Norway ?

- Do you guys have a second hand push bar to sell ?
- Do you guys have second hand extra lamps/LED (low reference number for short and wide light)?
- What would be your advices about the upgrades i should consider or the stuff you bring with you on winter trips?
- Where can i find this in Norway ?

- Do you organize some kind of T4 meetings in Norway? :D

Anyway, thanks for welcoming me in your country and i hope to be able to post in norwegian soon!
Have fun and safe roadtrips!

Welcome! To upgrade the headlights you can use this from biltema https://www.biltema.no/bil---mc/bilbely ... 2000040790

Push bar is dificult to get approved for road use in Norway. But koolart.no has got many nice things for your car :)

Rust is always an issue her in Norway. They use alot of salt on the road to ceep the roads free from snow. So it is recomanded to treat the chassis.

Thanks for the information!
I will consider the problem of the rust! Do you have any plan or advice to do it? Where to go? Who to contact ?
What do you recommend exactly? :)

Fluid film is highly recommended. https://www.ojtorheim.no/categories/flu ... nQQAvD_BwE

You have too look it up to find nearest garage. Or you can do it yourself. But it is more work than it looks like...
