Not on being a former G owner my comment on the door closing is that it takes more than a few tries to figure out how hard to slam the door to get it closed. I keep getting the door is open notification. I guess I had way too many years driving cars equipped with soft close door mechanisms.

Door Ajar

im a bit of an audiofile and worry that there isnít higher end sound system option available on g/g63. Coming from Range Rover ATB 1700W 29 speakers 3D sound system, not sure how the standard burmester is going to sound. I like my 911ís burmester, hopefully itís equal or better.

ive had the g63 and g550 2014/2016. Today I got the g550 2019 and hereís my take on it.

MB killed it!!

the exterior is beautiful, itís everything we all love and just bigger which I think gives it the king of the road look even more.

the interior is extremely well designed and inviting, I instantly loved just sitting inside, the seating position is higher to me. The dash seems expansive and cockpit like. The room between driver and passenger is so much better and that width with the hieght of the cabin together makes it spacious.

The drive is totally different now, it feels like an sclass but high up, I think the AMG steering wheel is a big plus and would recommend it along with AMG package.

night or day the cabin is just a place you want to be. The sound system is so crisp and really hits the spot, if the bang n Olsen $7000 system in a bmw is a 10 this is a 8.5 which is still bangin.

the amg package exhaust sounds very nice, not to loud but has the burbles and grunts at all the right moments, the downshift is awesome you get the pops and that clarification to the listener ďthat was a deep throaty burble that you loved itĒ

the leather is very soft and surprisingly better than before, I didnít get designo but now I prolly wouldnít have itís nicer than I thought and super lush. The build quality is superb and the new world convieneces are just something anyone who drove the old G would instantly fall in love with.

When this truck hits the road and people get to see and test drive them, RR,Bentley will def have a tough competitor because mb took something that was so good and they made it so much better which to me checks every box possible.

there is one thing I could say I was slightly disappointed in, the door slam is different it still good but before it was more vault like now itís like a lighter vault door.

bottom line if your on the fence, Jump because thereís happiness on this side more then you think.

oh and the reason thereís black and white because they had an extra one someone canceled so my friend bought one and we spent 30 mins dr iving around in two new gís punching it to here and feel the car, What a site to see.

Thank for your input and congrats. Happy driving

In Europe, you can go with option 996 even on a G550, and get the camera and the star projector. It has the big hole for the star projector, and a second smaller hole nearby with the camera. In the US, the only way to order option 996 is on the G63. Itís weird how the Euro vs/ US MB options vary this way, but hey, MBUSA obviously has its good reasons.
