When I got back to my car on Costco's car park the other day, there was a G Wagon/Class parked next to me. It was badged up as a Brabus ...... is there such a thing? Or has the owner found a bag of Brabus badges? The Merc website just shows AMG G Wagons.
For such an expensive car, they look bl00dy awful, especially in matt paint .... IMHO ;) EmilysMum, who has no interest in anything car related even commented on it looking like a Land Rover.
It left shortly after me & set off from the lights onto the motorway like a scalded cat :D

You won't be able to drive it on the road but that's not a problem for a G ;)

LK noted .i wonder how long before they kill the diesel .i guess 10 15 yr would put me past worrying and one might get a decent deal on a good used one in the meantime?

I wouldn't be so sure... Onse the media hype about diesels killing our children has died down (see what I did there?) potential buyers will once again see the big reduction in running costs when driving a diesel.

They will still sell, only in lower numbers and lower prices secondhand.

There's still a big market though, all those diesels the Goverment "encouraged" us to buy a few years ago arn't going away anytime soon.

Get in before other buyers catch-on!
