View Full Version : Dimension / Mirror questions

10-07-2010, 09:59 PM
The city of Irvine, CA has determined that they don't want any vehicles wider than 84" to be parked on their streets. This is measured at the widest point on the vehicle. We called the police parking enforcement and they said they are constantly being called out to actually measure cars and issue citations if the vehicle is too wide.

The data sheets says the 2010 Sprinter is 79.7" wide not including the mirrors. I know there are more than a few mirror options, and I am not sure what comes with the 144" tall crew van. The sticker / invoice shows an F68: Exterior Mirror - Power/Heated (if that helps)

Do the mirrors fold in?
If they do, how wide is the van mirror to mirror?

Is the 2011 going to be the same width?

Is it possible to swap out the mirrors with folding type?
If yes, how much do they stick out?

I think I'm :censored: :yell: :bash:

I believe they all manually fold. It's also for those times when you hit something.

With just 4 inches to spare, I don't think the mirrors will fold to 2 inches each side.

Modern sprinters are 96" wide with mirrors fully extended. Each mirror is 10" wide. Hope that helps.
