Hello everyone! I've been a Mercedes-Benz Tech for 13 years now and recently discovered how cool Sprinters are! We have always been Land Cruiser owners and are on our 5th one, (A 100 series this time).
My dealership doesn't sell, or work on Sprinters but our other dealership in Rocklin does and so the wife and I stopped by one weekend to look at them. The Sprinter Sales Manager was there on his day off and he spent the better part of the day walking us around and explaining the good options to order and what options are not necessary! He showed us his newly arrived 4X4 with dual sliding doors! I absorbed all the information with much excitement and when we got home I started building and editing, and building and editing until I was sure I built the perfect van for us!
I sent it to him for his opinion and he said it was perfect and let me know he had one slot left open for a 144" 4X4 and he sent my build to the factory and they had accepted it!!
The order was placed in January and it couldn't have been more perfect! The Sales Mgr text me and asked if we were home because he wanted to come "take a look at our Nissan Patrol" he has always wanted to see! Not too much later he arrived in the driveway with our girl!! What a nice surprise! It arrived at the dealership July 12, our 21st wedding anniversary!!!
It's a cargo and I optioned the heck out of it with the exception of all the windows, electric step, roof-top AC, and rear air and heat. I got a heated windshield, rear wiper blades, heated swivel seats.
The only option I couldn't get was orange seat belts! The factory wouldn't allow it with swivel seats.
We got the factory emergency flashlight and the wheel chock though!!
