big tank yes I averaged 41 mpg on a run down south! Auto parking is good LED are off the hook awesome! cornering lights great too

Booked in for a remap to 190 BHP at Carlisle and asked for a price for a headlamp conversion to the ILS.

I know I was silly ordering the bog standard Vito but with a little work I'll get it just the way I want.

Ant.
I guess the ILS conversion will not be a cheap aftermarket addition

remap already?

Yes, I would have opted for ILS but my Vito was from stock (hence 159 per month) so couldn't add any factory options.

136bhp already (114Cdi) so 190bhp will be most enjoyable.

Yours looks amazing.

Bulkhead rattle is annoying I think it is the gauge of the actual thing being to small
compared to W639 construction.
Reported to dealer they have witnessed it they are going to contact Merc
so panel van owners report to your local dealers so we all get eventually a recall fix..

Hi Alec,

Wow, yes, Gretna Outlet Village is a mere 3 miles from our house. You're more than welcome anytime. I'm always working local if not at home in workshop.

Loving my new van. Took it in for a recall last Friday. Something to do with the brake fluid bottle mount. I was only there 10 minutes. They said it was another Vito recall where nothing actually needed to be done.

Price for full Headlamp conversion to ILS is 2460.00 I DON'T think I'll be having it done in a hurry. Re-map not done yet. It'll probably wait now until I'm off at Xmas.

How was your journey today? Effortless? Still happy with the van?

Ant.
