G Wagon advice

I am a long time porsche driver who is getting ready to give up the ghost. Was thinking of getting a G Class. I live in a city that has as many pot holes as rats, and bad traffic. I don't drive long distances very often and never off-road. I like the uniqness of the G, but wonder whether i will hate it soon after buying. I know it is the antithesis of the sports car, and am asking for your feelings about use and ownership. There are new ones available and a few 2002 models. thanks

RE: G Wagon advice

Why not post this in the G forum? You'd get some great answers there, it on of the busiest forums here.

As for me, I love the G, but its to costly for what you get, I'd rather get a Range Rover for the same price and for what I'd use it for. A relative of mine has a G55 and the saving grace it has over the Rangie is that it seems the G will last forever. Literally, its built like a bank vault!
