Dodge Sprinter

    The company is Euro based Vb air systems Denmark
    they will export world-wide, but you need a certified ,or qualified person to install there are companies in the states that install air ride for local units ! so you need to find one who will take the project on as it needs to be certified for US roads, Installation that is.
    The product has a full ISO rating, this exceeds local safety regulations and or is similar so there is no problem with this, it also is the only unit that Mercedes-Benz endorses.
    You will have to join this link it's a US forum but has the faculty's for email and picture format that will clearly show what you would be purchasing
    My suggestion is to join the forum and ask for Altered Sprinter! or start a separate thread, I would find this inside of 24 Hrs as to myself being in Australia, time frame differences.
    Although there appears to be a link to place a picture in this forum , damed if I can work it out :confuse:

    I've got pictures of my Sprinter on my computer, just don't know how to attach here, so I can share. Guess I need to ask my grandkids.
  • ddailey,
    Perhaps you could start by going into your My CarSpace account and uploading your photos there first and then we can go thru the other steps? It took me a few tries the first time too.
  • Found that my fresh/recycled air is inop. The light comes on but nothing. So to dealer I go. The linkage is broken. Repair will cost 525.00 dollars. The mechanic says he has seen this before. Has anybody else had this problem! Thank goodness it is on fresh air. Thanks Tom :cry:
  • Anybody know?

    I'm trying to figure out the yellow. I thought they used to have two yellows. I'm not sure if the Calcite Yellow is safety yellow or a softer yellow. I just saw a banana-colored Sprinter on the road and thought that's the color I want. I also saw a picture of a Sprinter in that banana yellow on a Mercedes site but can't find it again, and the picture wasn't a true photo anyway. Does anyone know? Thanks!
  • Calcite Yellow is a softer Lemony/banana Yellow than Safety Yellow (slightly orangy-brown/darker).

    Thanks Ken. So the Calcite isn't DHL delivery van yellow or Toyota FJ Cruiser yellow? It's softer than those?

    I think that's the one I saw the other day, hopefully.

    Thanks again.
  • correct, In my estimation it is softer, but remember, that is a Lot of Yellow (a Sprinter covered in it)... LOL

    They did have a darker yellow, but appear to have dropped it or relegated it to Fleet sales (some road-work and construction companies (and state road crews, for example) require safety Yellow in order to qualify for government jobs/contracts).

    My wife's car was a Yellow Mazda 808 when we got married... not exactly banana yellow, but close.

    KenB :lemon: :shades:

    Heh! I was thinking of a red one for my business before I saw the yellow one. My boyfriend told me... remember it will look like a very fat woman in a red dress!

    Thanks for the info Ken.

  • I have ordered an 08 and it is built and expected to arrive at Indian dealer the end of Oct. Started building 08's in Aug, 4 months delivery according to dealer.

    Does anyone know of a US company that converts Sprinters to four wheel drive? Oberainger offers a conversion in Germany, but not for the US. Any ideas? Thanks
  • It was slated to become a factory option at one point. The old model had the option in Europe. That is one of the reasons I wanted to see official 2008 specs.....
  • Has anybody out there had any luck finding a block heater for the 07? They wont be available from Mercedes for another 7 months. There is supposedly some aftermarket supplier out there but I cant find any info on it.

  • If you can read German, you can see the options
    for the Sprinter in its home country. What seems odd, besides the higher prices, is that the colors are not displayed the same even though they have the same name. Aquagreen in the USA is bluegreen. Aquagreen in Gremany is evergreen. They should have actual photographs of each color instead of just changing pixels so that you can tell what the real color actually is. ( If they want to actually sell them that is ). 1308&country=de&lang=de&stid=GEW&evid=model&js=off&isf_INI=Gewerblich%253DJa%252- CAT_INI%253Dm&sequence=%2FINI

    here is a link to a 4x4 tested in africa,
    of course, the USA market probably will not get it because
    we are not given much priority and the way exchange rates are going even if we did get it it would be 50-60K.

    But it is VERY cool - a 3500 extra long 4x4 would be fun.

  • extra long 4x4 is not available but you would be looking at US $80 grand plus no discounts on these the waiting list extends over 12 months if you can be bothered waiting as to Government having priority on orders
