We really want to get an 8 passenger. The majority of the PV on lots right now are 7 passenger. My dealer is telling me they can not order the 3 passenger middle seat and change the middle seat, the only way to get the 8 passenger is to get it built that way from the factory. MB is very slow getting the van to the states. We were told if we ordered one now it would probably be April before we could take delivery. We really want to get a new van soon. There are a few options we really need and we want an 8 passenger van. Has anyone else had discussions with dealers about changing a currently built van from 7 passenger to 8 passenger.
