    Facelift G63

    Picked up our late 2018 G63 up from its two year service yesterday and was thinking I might place an order for a new one, the dealer has some pre specced cars coming in May '21 but the waiting time is quoted as 9 to 12 months for bespoke builds and we wanted the solid grey paint which dealers don't seem to pre spec so I would be happy waiting for it.

    Does anyone have any inside info on likelihood of a facelift for this model coming down the line ?

    Interestingly I also may wait until Jan 1 to place the order as the way the Brexit negotiations are going there will be a 10% tariff which on this car is £15+K which I don't feel like stomaching Smiley

    There were a couple of changes now (September) in Germany, new colors, G500 is out (coming back next year), G400 d is the standard model now. They also introduced the Urban Guard theft protection now, which includes GPS tracking. I remember my sales guy telling me that a facelift is due 2021 but I'm not so sure about it. Maybe he just wanted me off his back (I was pushing him for a faster delivery if I order one). Smiley

    I got the Trackhawk instead, saved a ton of money but...the G63 would still be my favorite, it was just too expensive (2700 EUR lease per month) for a daily driver.

    Re: Facelift G63

    Many thanks for the info, I looks like the G63 is one of those cars where because of the decent residuals leasing really doesn't work, mine at two years old is realistically worth £120K now which is about £30K depreciation, pretty sure the lease options were around £2K per month.

    Re: Facelift G63

    No facelift for the next year. Only at the end of 2021 there will be new MBUX system, but that's all.


    Re: Facelift G63

    Got the same info regarding MBUX.

    Was in Graz a month ago at the Experience Centre. No mention about the G500 being out (I expect mine in February).

    Local communication about anything G is terrible here...

    Many thanks for the response, can you share the source of your info about there being no facelift, you obviously don't have to be specific if it's sensitive ?

    My dealer. I think they know what to expect next year.

    911tts is right...only MBUX coming, my dealer told me the same today (I was there to check on that A45 again but he doesn't negotiate further). Smiley
