Default What are the things you would want to see on a fully redesigned Sprinter?

...besides a larger dealer network.

Consider this sort of an update on this thread:

Before you make your suggestions, keep in mind that the 2014 Sprinter already features these:

This may sound petty but more Cup holders sized for larger cups. I have several insulated mugs that fit other vehicles but only one in the Sprinter.

A document that lists ALL of the diagnostic codes, what they mean, and how to access them. Third party companies such as the maker of Scangauge, could then make a truly useful, low cost product.

Additional manufacturing cost: ZERO

Probably a pipe dream, but since you asked.....

Pretty much all of the manufacturers are headed as fast as possible in the opposite direction, to make the interfaces less transparent, more proprietary, and more of a revenue center for the company. Unfortunate, but true.

Oh, and they should knock on their neighbor bmw's door and ask to borrow a spool of carbon fiber for a NONRUSTING lightweight body.
