What do I do with a converted Land Rover Discovery?

Folks, I am looking to buy a 2002 Land Rover Discovery commercial. The previous owner had it as a passenger vehicle and converted it to commercial - but left seats in it. How can I formalise this, and is there an online calculator for this?

Is the Peugeot Partner a cheap to run van?

I would like to purchase a cheap run around van. I wouldn't be putting up 4,000km in a year. I saw a 2000 Peugeot Partner with 115,000km on the clock and was wondering if  they give much trouble -  electrical, engine, gearbox, bushes, doors, etc. and are parts pricey?
