I should have know better -- feeding the troll with facts just makes the troll change his statements so he is always right.

Over and Out until we get back on the topic of this thread.

Any updates on the gas-powered Sprinters? Anyone seen one or taken delivery of one yet? Any recent rumors out there about the engine itself?

I'm calling shenanigans- marketing shenanigans. Mercedes doesn't want to lose sales on the diesel engine that is slower, won't save you any money on fuel, and sells for $7,000 more.
In Canada, the price difference is CA$4,200

Does anyone know how MB is lowering the power on Metris motor? Is it timing? Tuning? Reducing Turbo pressure? Or a little of all? Would be nice not to have to buy premium. I'm sure business bottom lines would like this.
At my local independent shop, always lots of BMW's major work, lot fewer Mercedes. And I am the only Metris they have seen (to install AMG Wheels -look fantastic). I asked why so many relatively newer BMWs?? Lots of turbo failures $7K if not caught in time destroys catalytic converter and mufflers. Only 1-2 Mercedes turbos per year. Their opinion BMW too high of pressure 30psi to squeeze out every horsepower. BMW's going through turbos every 30-40K miles. Mercedes rare turbo issue, but MB like the Metris only 9psi.
