Which car should I take?

I'm going on a two week road trip from Nor.Cal. to So.Cal to Vegas. Just me and the wife.

We cant decide whether to take the S-Class or the G-Wagon.

The S-class: would be better on gas, better comfort and a better navigation system.

The G-Class on the other hand is 2x fun than the S. We can park it anywhere unlike the S-Class. If seems like a lot of celebs drive this vehicle.

04' G500 (G-Wagen) Benz (sold) <== we trully miss her.
04' Range Rover <== Traded with an Audemars Piguet RG Royal Oak Montoya =)
07' BMW 750Li <== traded this in, economy is down.
--
10' Acura TL w/ Tech package. (I'm loving this new ride)
09' GL320 BlueTec Black on Black w/ Everything except the grille guard.
08' Gallardo Spyder on HRE's

Good point, even if I were to Valet the vehicle, they can't possibly do much damage to it. Just hope they don't start pressing the [:0] locking differential buttons.

RE: Which car should I take?

in vegas all vallet parking is free. although during my stay at the mgm i had my 2002 s430 vallet parked and after picking it up my vehicle was completely off alignment in the rear which was odd. my guess is the vallet guy backed over a smaller curb since there was no rim damage. i had no idea that the rear was off alignment either until about a month passed and i needed two new tires and my mechanic told me about the alignment being off.
