CONGRATS. Looks great. Love the rear, but man those SLK, C-Class wheels gotta go STAT. A G-Class needs G-Class wheels, not sedan wheels!

What a G Class truly needs is proper go anywhere at anytime tires. This will be my first mod. After that, the bull bar will probably be removed. The wheels will probably stay. It is a Mercedes after all.

Nice looking ride. Mine will also be black. I actually like the wheels...but I do agree, the brush bar needs to go. Good luck and happy motoring!! Give us a report once you put some miles on.

I asked my dealer if he photographed the wrong car (they also got a black G). He assures me that it is emerald green. Iíll find out when I pick it up on Monday.

I picked her up today! My initial thought is that the AMG package exhaust note is pretty aggressive. If I didnít know better, I would think it was a true AMG. It sounds a lot like a C63 that I drove a couple of years ago. Itís much more aggressive than my M6 or X5M. The steering is light years better than the old G. It had a natural feel that didnít fight back in the turns. The engine feels like it has lots of torque. The hoods rises significantly when leaving a traffic light, but this might be the soft suspension fooling me into believing there is monstrous torque. The electronic dash is has options galore and Iím still trying to figure them out.

A couple while at the dealership:


Rear 3/4

Front 3/4

Lastly, those controversial ďS ClassĒ wheels came with a surprising feature...


AMG?

Congrats!!! Looks great in green, what color interior ?

In the softest setting, what would you compare the ride comfort to ? S, GLE class ?

I went went the black 201 leather, piano black trim, and deleted the red belts and stitching. Basically, I tried to make the interior black and silver only. I figured the G is flashy enough without adding more colors. At the dealership my salesman had a hard time keeping out of my G.

I havenít driven the S or GLE in a while, but road irregularity isolation reminded me of a 7 Series I drove recently.. I assume that the comfort similar to the GLS. Itís certainly more compliant than my wifeís X3.

I was hoping to take a side-by-side pic while at the dealership, but the other G left before I finished the paperwork.

No, I usually buy matching paint from DrColochip and touch up when needed.

Being so close to the VPC, you might literally be the 1st regular customer to have taken delivery of the G...no dealers Iíve called have them available to even view yet.
