    New addition

    Picked up this G55 last week, worst handling car ever! The suspension is total rubbish and the rear seats are cramped considering how large the car is. The gearbox is also the slowest thing I've ever experienced. Other than that the car is sooooo cool! Smiley Makes a wonderful sound you can experience as the pipes exit out the sides.

    Some pics.

     


    Re: New addition

    Many congrats!! The G55 is a beast. Is this car still in production or did you buy it preowned?

    For me the G55 has the better sound compared with the G63. I drove the G55 form a friend  one day long. It was pure fun!!

    Re: New addition

    It's a 2012 model with very low mileage, but the price of course was extremely attractive. I couldn't pass it on. Always lusted for one, but not for MSRP.


    Re: New addition

    I've always thought the G-class was overpriced, had horrendous mileage, and in general sucked, especially in the luxury department. Much like you, however, I think it's super cool. It's probably the only SUV I'd even consider buying simply because I think it's so badass looking.

    I'd never buy one new because it's outrageously overpriced. Mercedes needs to build a G-class with a fuel efficient motor and S-class level accommodations. I couldn't care less about performance of such a car. Super awesome style, meh everything else. 

    Oddly enough, I want one.


    Re: New addition

    Congrats Mike. Whoopsy had a similar review WRT the performance characteristics of the G, but it certainly has a presence, doesn't it? The interior certainly is lacking in some respects as well, but for some reason I want one too.


    Re: New addition

    I don't get it. Sorry. I don't think it is even cool. It is the ultimate poser car.


    Re: New addition

    i think it's super pointless and super useless. But I agree it's just so damn cool.

    Re: New addition

    I love it, looks so cool. Congrats Mike!


    Re: New addition

    Utterly pointless car, but it's still fun blush Perhaps in the US it is a poser car, but they are very scarce locally. So I don't think they have the same stigma here. Most don't even realize what it is.

    Thanks Turbolite and Porker kiss

    Re: New addition

    I pointed a G63 out to my GF the other day, to her it was just an old Mercedes. I guess that's how a lot of people look at it, but that makes it cool. kiss

    My feelings exactly. 


    Re: New addition

    Magnetite Black? My car is the same car !!

    I had consider the G55 before, they do make a better sound, but I much prefer the redesigned interior. In the end the new interior won over better sound.

    Re: New addition

    Whoopsy, I must double check. I just know it's a pearlescent colour. I agree, the 63 has an amazing interior in comparison. However, as mentioned earlier, I got a deal I could not refuse on this one kissI couldn't get myself to pay what they are asking locally for a new G63. It's too painful 


    Re: New addition

    Totally understand especially where you lived.

    While the price for one is still high for a G63 where i lived, it's still cheaper than a Cayenne Turbo with the options I wanted where I lived, plus I get a better discount on the Mercedes dealership.

    But you know what, I can say I have a similar car like Mike!!!

    Re: New addition

    G55 is a cool car and my next SUV will be the G63. they are timeless. Nevertheless, I have to agree that when it Comes to actual driving, any modern SUV is a better car.

     

    Enjoy in good health !
