With so many customizable options I can only imagine production nightmare MB faces. Itís about time they streamlined Sprinter offerings. I also suspect they may axe 4x4 from the line since they use a third party kit anyways.

Congrats on the purchase.

I checked out the passenger. For some reason, it is $59k when the MSRP for that van is only $50k. Are any selling for above MSRP?

The guys over there were friendly to work with and did not hit me with over sticker pricing. I would call Claude at the dealership.

My dealership pinged me yesterday and mine has left the building and is on its way via train. Should pick it up in 2-3 weeks

Good news! My salesman told me that about the same time as paint issues came up and they limited the available colors, they also switched from rail shipping to truck shipping. Are you sure it is being shipped via rail? Mine probably won't arrive until some time around January so it's entirely possible the change in the shipping method hasn't taken effect quite yet?

Wanted to elaborate on our delay, it appears our van collected dust for 3 months due to having the wrong windshield washer reservoir pump installed at time of production. Ours was ordered with rear wipers & they installed a washer fluid pump for a front only build, the rear wiper builds use a pump with 2 outlet ports for the hose hookups.

Simple fix local dealer ordered part and repaired.

Crazy something so trivial and easy to repair had the van sitting in the rework lot for 3 months.

Hope others on here don't have to deal with lengthy delays for equally silly reasons.
