    Hi guys, just purchased an older 230 G and got big plans, i'll try keep you updated with pics. I'm going for the g55 look and hopefully at some point install a new powerful engine.

    Any fellow g'ers who can offer advise about parts in the UK etc give me a shout. Also some pics for inspiration would be good :)

    You lucky man you!!! One of my personal favorites the G Wagon. Theres plenty on the internet.

    560 V8 was a common conversion. Keep us updated.

    My brother in law has a G. Not sure what model, but its quite old - early 90's with a straight 6. He's had it for years.

    Also, my next door neighbour has two - both big V8s.
    Ones 2007, the other 2009. He also has a E280 estate from around 1992 as his daily driver :)

    Both came through today on recovery but still not even checked as it's dark when I get back from work! Trying to decide whether to stick with the black or silver one, choices choices
