Well guys some may remember I was about loose my Range Rover (in a bet no less)
Its now gone. last weekend, so now replacement time.
I went to the Land Rover dealer 2 in fact last week, both had a shitty attitude.
So then my radar yet again floated into a Mercedes dealer, and in the next two days seriously thinking about a G63
The car that's coming to the dealer is a White one, with Designo interior in black.
Thos past owner and current owners on here tell me what I must have as spec wise?
And what's not important, as I am pretty sure the signature will be signed by Weekend.
Paulie, yo da man! Congrats!!
White is a good colour by the hot Mediterranean. White would probably have been my choice too if I where to replace mine. Ruler spec it! (Instead of ticking plenty boxes line up a ruler and tick them all in one strike!). I have a clever option on my G400 but they missed it on my G55. It's the ergonomic driver seat with air cushions to adapt the seat and back rest to your exact body contour. I don't know if they still have it as an option but I like it a lot. The standard seat in the G55 is totally acceptable on long journeys too but the ergonomic one is clearly better. I enjoy it a lot on long bumpy expeditions off road.
Get four snow chains and you never have to worry when venturing up into the mountains in winter time. They lie flat in the boot and take no space. Always keep a pair of warm boots (type Sorel), gloves and a goose down jacket in case you need to put them on. In a heavy snowfall you may be alright but there will be cars in the ditch asking for a tow so be prepared. For that reason also carry an elastic tow line.
I have winter tyres on especially designated MB wheels which are worth while. Not so much for the snow but for the compound which does the job on the cold tarmac. It's a heavy car (Good advice also for the FF, the Sottozeros maintain the car on the road when the summer tyres become numb in the cold).
Enjoy it, it's the coolest off-roader out there!
Far more unique than a Landie, you almost never see a girl driving a G-Wagen - it's a man's car!
