    Re: Ordered a G55 this week

     Mike has probably ordered 2 more G55 since then


    Re: Ordered a G55 this week

    Smiley Sorry easy_rider911!

    Am pretty keen on the G-class off late, but not sure about the G55.

    They are selling a pretty nice G350 diesel with the bluetech in the 2011 range....

    But then again.. the devil in the ear is whispering... AMG V8 ... AMG V8...

    Help!

     

     


    Re: Ordered a G55 this week

    LOL - I'm getting old - I didn't pay attention to the date of the thread - all I saw was a thread about Mike S getting a new car - and we all know how frequently this happens

     he must have stepped it up a notch with the Pagani G wagon :D

     



    Re: Ordered a G55 this week

    g55 is in my mind constantly too.....it's just the ancient driveline and limited top speed that keep me away.

    maybe when the g63 comes out.

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    Re: Ordered a G55 this week

    Any ideas if the G63 is out this year? Geneva maybe?

     

    I seriously hope they do not change the body


    Re: Ordered a G55 this week

    body will receive minor mods for pedestrian crash safety.

    engine will be 5.5 twin turbo faik....

    Cheers! Thanks intouch1

    Then the 2010 or 2011 models should be pretty good deals

     


    Re: Ordered a G55 this week

    Wow, I totally forgot about this post. I am actually in the process of continuing with my order. I paused it as I too heard the rumor of the twin turbo version. Apparently this is no longer on the cards (whether my informant is correct or not). So I am going ahead with the order now.

    See Mike, good that you've been reminded! :))) You almost forgot about...... :))))

    Re: Ordered a G55 this week

    Hahaha Cheers!!! Smiley

     

    Yeah, there are many pros and cons to the G wagon....but it think most importantly it grabs the heart in a way that rules over other considerations....

     

    Regd top speed, for me thats not an issue, since I would drive it mostly in winter or roadtrips with many passengers, and then there is no desire for high speeds. Effortless cruising is sufficient.

     

    I think the big decision is between the G350 bluetec diesel and the G55. The diesel makes common sense, but its well... diesel... and I think one would always be left wishing one had gotten the G55 instead.

     

    What really appeals about the G55 is that the engine is special.. being hand built and all... I dont know what percentage of the effort really is so.. but looking at residual values on the few used ones on sees, its one of the highest of any passenger car. So it looks like they are built to last.......

     

    Just my thoughts so far on the subject Smiley
