More pix and video, please.
That's also in a Vanagon.
Cool regardless though.
I will have to say that my EV's chairs are some of the most comfortable seats I've used for long days behind the wheel. Curious how my my back...
Sweet, enjoy your new ride!
How long ago was 50k miles? As Europarts-SD states, it's on the seventh revision.
And no need to have a dealer replace it, most anyone can do it themself in ten minutes tops.
First thing I would replace is the problematic-yet-inexpensive and easy-to-replace brake light switch:
Many of us have had the same issues...
Reminds me of the Fahrenheit-edition MkV GTIs from a few years back.
Nice writeup (as always), Cole. Thanks for sharing.
I'd have a Sprinter in my fleet if my budget and lifestyle allowed for it. More of the former than the latter.
Huh, I was always under the impression that that wheel was a styled wheel cover, not an alloy wheel.
The more you know...
Consider wheels that are rated/intended for use on heavier VAG products - like A8s, Phaetons, Bentleys and the like. IIRC, all have the same 5x112 BCD.
Are you *sure* that it won't fit in the garage? ;)
Sweet van, enjoy it! Oh, and what kind of mileage did it deliver on your journey?
Unplug the Soundaktor. That was the first thing I did.
Second mod for me was bolting on a receiver hitch for my bike rack.
A plaid license plate frame was the third and final mod.
I like your ambition and idea. Hope that you have the funds, time and talent to convert (and share the pix along the way).
IIRC, my EV MV hardtop weighs 4500#, significantly more than a Passat....
Excellent! Don't forget about your European van-loving friends over here when you start tinkering with the Sprinter. And, on a side note, I drove past that Breeze Rentals parking lot just yesterday...
And looking at the texture pattern molded into the day/night lever on the later T4s, I suspect that EuroVans used the same mirror during the entire run. The angled texture looks a lot like the early...
I would certainly welcome (and likely purchase) a T6, provided they are available in the US (especially w/TDI power), but I am not holding my breath.
Noted, will do, thanks for the tip.
A friend of mine had his US-spec Sprinter converted to 4WD in Germany using, of all things, Toyota components (!!). I'll have to dig up the name of the company that did the conversion. His Sprinter...
Well, after five years and 33k miles, the Michelins that I had purchased in post #21 of this thread were getting a bit too worn to take on a winter trip to Colorado in a few weeks. They would have...
Logan - the general consensus is to consider take-offs from heavier VW/Audi/Bentley models. Phaetons, A8s and the like as they have similar curb weights to our EuroVans.
Honestly, as a self-professed young driver, your first investment should be in yourself. Consider enrolling in a performance driving school to hone and refine your skills.
