    Should I go for it

    Hi guys, 

    I have a rare chance to get a MB G 63 AMG Edition 463. It is a special lease for only 12 month.

    Normally I lough at and about this car, but this time somehow I am thinking hardly to take the car. What is your opinion? Is this car drivable? I would use it as a daily car to replace my Panamera turbo for one year.

    Go for it, nice interior tho, interesting to get from low gravity car to opposite one. 


    Re: Schould I go for it

    for only 12 months, why not?  I also vote go for it.  Will be completely different driving experience vs Pan turbo, no need to compare.  It looks good, nice interior, should be fun.

    The G has more character in a single suspension component than the entire Panamera has.  Whether you can get along with this much character every day - only owning one will tell you.

    Go for it, I use very often and its ok as a daily driver. The car has character.

    On a side note, you might want to add the Brabus Ride Control, I think it is a must.

    Would you use it for longer trips primarily? In this case I would hesitate as the Panamera is much more fun. For shorter distances, however, this car might be a nice contrast and you will enjoy the next Panamera (Hybrid) even more afterwards Smiley


    Re: Schould I go for it

    Aldo, for city cruising and short highway stints definitely go for it.

    if you spend a lot of time commuting long distances, absolutely forget about it.

    I absolutely enjoy mine but I mainly drive pretty short distances. for anything longer I would always choose another car.

    Re: Schould I go for it

    OMG - my dreamspec - may I ask in what "ballpark-figure" such a lease is ? I would take it immediately to try it.......wink

    I completely agree, long distances on the highway are not really enjoyable in this car, for the rest I think its perfect.

    Go for it, it will be a tottaly different experience than Pana Smiley

    Re: Schould I go for it

    Have to say the car looks really stunning. Have you driven it and if so did you like it? That, for me as well, would be the deciding factor whether to take the car or not. 


    Re: Schould I go for it

    Actually the blue one they have "on stock" looks even better kiss


    Re: Schould I go for it

    Love the G. Go for it. But just as a fun car in short distances. From my personal experience I would say at around max. 100 km uninterrupted driving.Thats for sure. But go for it anyway I think you will have other cars as DD.

    The question is: Do you like it? Do you feel that this is something special? This is one of those cars you have to have an emotional attachment to, otherwise you won't be happy with it. Have you driven it? For more than ten minutes?

    If you ask what I would do, I would say yes in a second (if the lease offer is really that good). Smiley Of course only if you also need the car (I wouldn't take one because my wife has the Cayenne S Diesel, two SUV wouldn't make sense right now).

    Re: Schould I go for it

    Will you use it for long trips to Croatia or Bosnia? If so, forget about it. You know why...

    If you will use it mainly in Germany and you like the way it drives then why not...

    It is an excellent car for long trips as well. I used a G550 to get from Orlando to Miami (almost 400 km and very boring, basically only highway and straight) and I loved it. So did my wife and the kids (rear leg room is a bit limited but the rear seats are set up in a slightly higher position, kids loved it).

    Only for straight and flat highway roads........................

    Trust me I know. 

    The car is barely tolerable for my wife if I drive it to Whistler the way I normally drive. Any longer she will puke in the car.

    So if we go up in that car she drives.

    Re: Schould I go for it

    My wife hates driving and usually sleeps always on longer trips, even if I do 300+ kph...she sleeps. yes

    One reason we get along that well...she wants me to always drive and she never complains about my driving.

    Re: Schould I go for it

    I have to test drive the G! The offer is incredible good, extremely good but the car should also be good.

    I see a lot of them here in Stuttgart. The car looks awesome but also a little be like a poser.

    I will keep you informed.

    Re: Schould I go for it

    It a lease, you really got nothing to lose. IF you don't like it give it back after, if you like it buy it after.

    It is a incredible car/truck/suv, for off roading nothing compares. Hell ice and snow same thing. The only thing that might keep up off roading would be a Jeep Wrangler or something. 

    For on road behaviour there is nothing to write home about, it is the worst riding car ever, but that's the charm of the car. It gives you that raw military utilitarian feel. But with luxury inside.

    Either you like it or you hate it. There is no middle thing with the G class.

    It is different, this is for sure. Please test-drive it for at least 30 minutes if you have never driven one. You will know fast if you can live with this "Panzer" (tank) or not. Smiley

    Re: Schould I go for it

    Yes! I will have a testdrive. The dealer told me, that he insists on a testdrive.

    I will go for skiing after BCN so I will report in two weeks or so.

    the Sound alone is worth the 12 month deal if you don't have to commit for 36 month or more

    I would agree Smiley Smiley but he better drive this car, you never know. He usually doesn't like SUVs.

    Go for it ! Unique style kiss


    Re: Schould I go for it

    Eh, hard to say. Can't say I've ever get a car if only for one year. The price would have to be absolutely amazing and actually save money over the Panamera for me to do it. 

    That spec is pretty damn expensive, so I'd think the lease anything but cheap.
