My 2008 144 sprinter just pulled up after the dealer filled the tank!

Let's hope it didn't pull up lame. (Sorry. Too much time in the stables.) I presume a welcome to Sprinterdom is in order.

Congratulations! :clapping:

I remember the first time driving up to the dealership with my van sitting in the lot. Couldn't miss it because it was the only blue one on the lot. Didn't think it would come after waiting 6 months. The call came in right exactly after 6 months.

2 things suck about buying the new Sprinter:

1) having to go back to the dealer tomorrow to drive my old Caravan back home
2) surprising the wife when I pick her up at the airport tomorrow :yell:

Looking forward to converting this thing for work once I get some $$.

Remember that you're now 8 or 9 feet tall, so don't just casually pull into the covered garage...

have fun

Explain to your health care insurance provider that you'll get more exercise by parking further from the entrance.

Demand a discount on your premiums.

Show them pictures of your new Sprinter in a menacing posture.

Tell them: acquiesce vel exsisto perussi

That'll make it all worth it.


Ok, seriously: Congrats!

Acquiesce or exist to chafe?

Your lucky! When I bought mine, the dealer charging the wrong battery meant I never even got to drive it of the lot, let alone for a couple of weeks - my son got the honour (and he's 23 and couldn't care less about trucks!)

Have fun with the new toy! Make sure you tell the wife its really a Mercedes in Dodge clothing (or would that make it worse?) :smirk:

I thought it was "acquiesce or be consumed...."

Latin was never my strong point.

Now that (#2) could be a real problem. :eek::rant: Good luck.
