NEWBIE VITO Owner Looking at Mod Advice?

Hi everyone,

I have just bought a Vito (639) 2004 115 CDI Dualiner LWB in silver.

Looking to do a few modifications to her. Ive already bought the chrome slatted grill and the genuine mercedes side steps!!

Im looking to get some alloys now but im concerned on how big to go without killing the ride quality? 20's? 19's? 18's? i think 18's due to the fact that 18's are on the Sport X but im open to hear peoples views on larger. BTW i use the VITO as a car not a brick carrier.

Any other mods worth doing?

Thanks guys. Been looking thru V-Class section and there is some really good info there. Even simple stuff like there is a cable channel in the roof lining which saves ripping up the floor when upgrading the stereo etc!!

Im hopefully getting my side steps fitted this weekend and my 18" rims so i should be able to get some pics up soon!
