Aftermarket Alarm, Canbus?

I recently took delivery of a 2007 Mercedes Sprinter but I would like to have an alarm fitted to it. One of the people I spoke to today said that all Mercedes have the CANBUS system and you cant just wire a regular alarm system in to it?

Is this true do I need th much more expensive CANBUS alarm or was he talking waffle?

I don't know about the Sprinter, but all US spec Mercedes-Benz vehicles have CAN bus systems. If you don't tap into the factory wiring you'll be fine.
