My dealer says they are no longer available on any further 2019s, period.

I tried to order them but no dice.

Do you know what MB is going to offer as a replacement? And, will it have High Beam Assist?

Are there aftermarket kits anyone has played around with that will work well on the 2019 MB 4x4?

Answer is no. Even placing LED bulbs in regular headlamps will trigger a malfunction message displayed in combination meter.

Rarely is a thing 'Plug and Play' on a Sprinter.

Not only Sprinters. It is pretty much all vehicles build these days with CAN electronics
