G Wagen owners....what's the deal?
Ok so what I want to know is what's so special about these cars? I love the way they look but there is a certain practical sense in me that can't seem to figure out why they are so expensive and so coveted? How does it compare to a RR HSE or Supercharged? Just really looking for some more insight on them from their owners as to why I should or shouldn't consider getting one for the wife well or myself...

I do not own own but after riding in one, the ride is stiff like riding in a sports car. I do not understand them either..... RR is more comfortable.L4P's Advisor on Pink Tacos and Manual Gearboxes

This is because of a tiny group of people called Armenians populate the majority of those cities, and at a young age we Armenians are disciplined and trained specifically to believe that the G Wagon, regardless of it being a 500, 550, or 55, is the most beautiful car ever made. idk why we love that car, we just do lol.2013 Mercedes-Benz E350

Its a G thing ! you wont understand till you drive one especially ///AMG
True its a stiff ride but you can change the suspension , and trust me you cant compare it to a Range Rover or an X5 or a Cayenne these are more soft but the G is more manly with all do respect to the Range Rover , X5 and Cayenne owners .
Its expensive because its hand build and you can customize it the way you like ! plus you can cruise , showoff , drive anywhere anytime , quick , performs really good and comfy = ALL IN ONE
But like i said you have drive one for at least 24H to know what im talking about .''RIDING HIGH''

there's a certain BOSS factor to the G wagen that no other car reproduces.
A successful man is someone who wakes up in the morning, goes to sleep at night, and does whatever makes him happy in between.
Happiness is the only thing worth pursuing.

I like that they look quite muscular...i know they are pretty damn fast (G 63) but they really aren't my cup of tea....except maybe the Mansory G-Couture...that thing is fvcking amazing.

I like the fact that those cars are rigid and pretty simple in the structure.
But the G-class is really annoying to drive on the street. Not fast, not really comfortable not really good fuel consumption etc.
It's a 40 year old car now and you feel it. Yes sure Mercedes has put up a lot of make up on it and new engines and interior but it's still miles away from a modern car like a Range Rover.
For me the comparison between Land Rover Defender and G-Class makes a lot more sense as both architectures are old and have both the same origin. Both were primarily used in the military and by workers.
Both are one hell of a good offroad vehicle. In this comparison the G-Class would win by miles when you judge by daily driving categories.Not putting miles on your (super)car is like having the hottest girlfriend, but not banging her very often because you want her to be tighter for her next boyfriend.
