Congrats! Stone Grey is the best of all sprinter colors IMHO.

That is not what happened.

The colors were offered.
Orders were place.
Production dates were set.
MB cancelled at the last minute.

Not aware of any marketing strategy based on pissing off paying customers.

It's pretty obvious to anyone not on the payroll MB blew it.

I'm not really mad at all, I switched to graphite and moved on.

I just think none of your answers make any sense, and your other posts make me believe that's not why you're here.

I also switched to Graphite l, but I have not yet moved on. Might need go to therapy. I’ve special ordered a few vehicles before and the MB process has been “unique”. Keep your eyes peeled for a loaded 170 4x4 Graphite for sale if I can’t move on.

It's a seller's market and they definitely know it.

That said my overall experience has been reasonably close to the honest forecast made by my saleman.

The color change and lack of crew vans been a bummer though. In the end my cargo build will be a better van than the crew I wanted. But for 60k it would nice to get the color you ordered.

Looks good, I've seen the selenite grey on a few of their cars, it a pretty cool color.
