anyone know if its possible and if so how would one go about getting a whole new steering wheel that comes on the original mercedes sprinter van, the reason is my steering wheel is slowly starting to get shiny and worn on the rim as well i kind of butchered the cheap mercedes decal that comes with the mercedes grill conversion kit when i installed that some time ago, it would be really sweet to get a brand spanking new original mercedes wheel!

The short version: NO

The long version: it's not impossible but pretty tricky and IMHO cost prohibitive (and I bought seats in Germany and had them shipped to California)

You're looking at replacing the rim and the airbag.
The MB original airbag has the Mercedes-star molded in with a small metal star embedded in the molded surface.
The airbag cover is not available without the airbag.
The problem is you're looking at importing something that can go boom into the US, not so easy these days...
Air transport is out of the question.
the darn thing is pretty pricey also I'm guessing around 600-700.- Euro

The rim is available and I'm guessing around 200.- Euro,

FWIW I dripped PU glue on mine and I'm looking at finding a local shop that will sew on a leather cover...

Cheers
