I would suggest explaining, here and in other ads, why you are selling a low mileage 2-year old fully loaded van in order to acquire a new van of the same make and model. In the vacuum of no explaination the person who is looking at your ad might assume it was a lemon. Not saying it is, don’t remember you kvetching much, just offering insight from a pro salesman.

No issues with it. Just want a differen’t color (silver). If I was gonna sell now is the time before it really gets miled up, and out of warranty. I am picky, and keep my vehicles immaculate. Yes you made a good point. I should have explained. I am currently driving it everyday until it sells, so mileage will change. It is clean, and ready to go. The dealer will put me in a sprinter until my new one gets here. Hope that helps! Thanks gm.

That would seem an odd reason, unless you realize that the base white color is not clear coated. I figured that out too late. That’s ok, though, because I really prefer green, so one day I’ll get the whole thing resprayed. Although for non clear coated paint, besides hilariously bad resistance to stone chips, it’s holding up pretty well.

Silver is easier to keep clean, and I also want leatherette. I didn’t depriciate mine out, just doing mileage. I love my van, and am in it right now. It is a great vehicle.
Interesting treatment of the rear section above the tail lights. I note you have barn doors and the painted bumper bars...don't they paint the black area above the tail lights ?

We ordered our passenger van with the split (180°) dual rear doors because the single hatch door would not clear our garage opening. We also ordered it with non-painted bumpers because we rather like the appearance, at least in front. But from what I can tell, if you have the non-painted bumpers, and the split rear doors, you get those panels above the rear tail lights in black. Which I do think looks weird, and out of place - but I guess I'll get used to it. Though this photo I found might be for the worker passenger model, while we ordered the upscale passenger. We'll see when it arrives in January if those two panels are painted or not.

I have decided to leave the GLE wheels, and Conti’s w/3k miles on the van. They are included now. Don’t have time to swap wheels / tpms, and don’t want to risk scratching them up.

Yes, getting silver with black leatherette. I have enjoyed mine so much, that I ordered another. Hopefully it will be here in February. They are building it Dec 10th. :grin:
