Question Bought a Vito W638 108D Camper Van, Help!

Hello there, got a few Q's about my new acquisition :-) tried the BenzWorld site but got no response! Sure i'll have more luck here, So here goes:

1. Driving back from purchase i felt that the throttle stuck in gearchanges & revved. So looked for new cable, but are they FBW?
2. It will need full brake discs all round, what other cars/vans have the same fitment, as they're sometimes cheaper even tho they're the same.
3. And any recommendations as to changing seats (2+1) to captains?
4. Is it too much hassle to convert this to CL as well?
5. What is the standard wheel/tyre size on these?

I now own the following:
2003 SLK230
2000 A-Class 1.4
1998 Vito 108D Camper
1984 Suzuki GSX1100EFE Dragbike
1978 Suzuki Yoshimura GS1100E
1985 Suzuki GSXR750F Pure Dragbike

That is quite the list of toys. I'm jealous of the Camper Van. We need something like that over here in the States. ^_^

It is a 98 model, but it's fully kitted already & only cost me 1,750 ($2,200) so much cheaper than the VW T4 options!
