hi guys..
i come visit quite often, but never really have anything worth posting.
but this time i thought some people here might be interested

a couple of weeks ago our local G-club was graciously treated to a test-drive event hosted my MB. in the line up was G300cdi professional & G55 AMG, both in RHD(they only started re-introducing RHD Gs last year, after they stopped sometime in the mid 90s)

test vehicles
G300cdi pro for the offroad & cross country course
G55 AMG for a short on-road run, some of us were able to clock 160 km/h before being forced to brake to avoid running over the cliff (we were at a private road in a mountain resort)

erwin wonisch (the Magna-Styer factory test driver for the G-class) took us for some spins on the flat field, which would somewhat explain the last pic
here' a short video of what erwin was doing with us as his passengers in the grass field

he also demonstrated ESP's ability. unbelievable technology that one. remember that prior to this, we were all stuck with 300GEs which were sold here until 1998 (indonesia was the only country in the world to have assembled civilian Gs outside of the Graz factory). so these were all new to us (on a G). unfortunately, i think because of the prices, we'll continue to be stuck for a very long time sad.gif
