RE PAYPAL ; as an ebay seller since 1997 and buyer since 2000 using paypal daily I can assure you PAYPAL DOES NOT PROTECT A SELLER OR BUYER AND YOUR MONEY IS NOT GUARANTEED NO MATTER HOW CLEVERLY PAYPAL WORDS IT.
www.paypalsucks.com for a reality check. in 2007 alone I have lost $2700 from fraudulent sellers where paypal could only recover a small percentage of what i paid. if the seller removes funds from their paypal account paypal will not cover anything and you are flat screwed. I do buy over $200k on ebay yearly for resale so I can live with the $2700 loss but If you cant afford to loose money DONT TRUST PAYPAL TO PROTECT YOU!

DONT TRUST PAYPAL TO PROTECT YOU!
This is most unfortunately TRUE. :thumbdown:

Unless you can't pay with a credit card directly, use paypal as a last recourse only, but only fund it with a credit card, never send a payment from your bank account. Paypal does not like you to pay through them with a credit card because it costs Paypal money, but this way you have some recourse.
Xperia is correct, Paypal does not protect anyone but itself. If you protect yourself and pay only with a credit card (most cc companies have a satisfactory dispute resolution process), even for Paypal payments through Ebay or other online sites, you should be ok.

Also you must answer the following questions when ordering any Mercedes conversion kit for your 2007 Sprinter.
2500 or 3500 model?
Gas or Diesel?
Does your Sprinter have optional headlamp washers?
Do you have glass in the rear doors?
Do you have wipers on the rear doors?
Beware of any seller that does not ask all of these questions, if not you will not receive ALL of the correct parts.
As an importer I can tell you the valance panel is a fragile part and damage is likely if not properly packaged.
Hope this helps,
