Date of first registration 11 12 2001
Mercedes VITO 108 CDI
I acquired the van in August 2008 from Wouter who runs Seasprite Sports, he in turn bought it from the guy who converted it.
Since 2010 I have had the van serviced and maintained by a dedicated Mercedes Benz specialist - John Haynes Auto Technics. 01903 500000
In June of this year I spent a fair amount on it and out here in France have just had a new diesel pressure regulator injection system fitted.
Please feel free to discuss the van and any questions you might have with David Sandell at John Haynes their Service Manager.
In his words "I have spent a fair bit of money keeping it well maintained"
Since owning the van I have probably only done circa 35k (current 82,000) - for as many know I live right on the coast I do not use it on a regular basis - with the main mileage being in the winter when I drive to the Alps - hence the snow tyres.
The van normally has low profile Alloy wheels.
I have had the lower door van sills seen to a couple of years ago. There is now evidence of rust on most of the doors and sliding doors (see photo below).
Overall the van drives very well. And people always comment how much room, and how comfortable it is in the back, which is fully carpeted.
Back seat comes out and has storgae in it.
Plus a good sound system with six speakers, and booster etc
Internally there are some scratches to the facia and general wear and tear as would be expected of a van of this age.
Please feel free to ask additional questions and to ask for extra images.
Reason for Sale
