Great to hear you'll soon be picking up your new van is TMC. Nice way to start off the New Year.Well that was a nice surprise. Our original delivery date (from an order placed in February) was December 22nd. MB then pushed this back to end of Jan/beg Feb and when they contacted me just before Christmas I was resigned to being told of a further delay. But no, to their surprise as well as mine, it was delivered on December 22nd!! Haven't seen it yet (gone for graphite grey this time) and it will likely be a couple of weeks into January before I pick it up. The dealer needs to order a V55 from the DVLA (which they will do on January 4th) and then DVLA manually issue one using the M1 reference previously discussed on this forum. I need to provide insurance certificate (on chassis number only as no reg yet!) and then wait.
Given that the dealer will have the vehicle on site for quite a few days I have asked that they interrogate all the firmware versions and update where needed (and provide me with a print out showing what versions are on the vehicle). Thanks to Webbah and others for their advice on that front.
On the upside, the cost is £1570 less than original quote (RFL now £280 instead of £1850) and the auxiliary night heater is included as standard!
