FITTING MERCEDES me ADAPTER TO SPRINTER
We wanted to monitor the systems on our Sprinter 4x4 V6 Independent whilst overlanding through Europe & USA and had read about the Mercedes me Adapter.
So whilst in Germany we made an appointment with Mercedes Benz Trucks located in Langenhagen just north of Hannover.
The Editors say it so well, “The most important role of these tales from the road is to inspire you to pack a bag and hop behind the wheel to explore something new”.
After listing the ‘Top 10 Best European Drives’ in our earlier blog we’re undecided about whether to head East and drive through all the Stans of Central Asia (like our intrepid overlanding friends John & Suzanne of www.Tiggers-Travels.com) or RORO ship our reliable 4x4 Sprinter ‘Mr Benz’ to Canada and start the long drive up to Prudhoe Bay Alaska before turning south all the way down the Pan America Highway to Ushuaia Patagonia.
Whilst overlanding around England a good friend of ours - a true classic car enthusiast - invited us to join him on a sunny Sunday afternoon at the ‘Concours of Elegance’ which is held annually in the beautiful gardens of Hampton Court Palace on the River Thames.
Hampton Court Palace is always worth a visit when in England as we both enjoy medieval history - and the spectacular gardens made the drive there worthwhile.
The very first vehicle we spotted was a lovingly restored Mercedes 0317 van – being Mercedes Benz Sprinter fans more about this historic racing car transporter later.
