Hi, I'm new to this forum so please bear with me if I'm asking very obvious questions.. I just bought a lovely G-Wagen W460 300GD, Manual, 5-speed, 28,000 miles on the clock, amazing condition throughout, and I have a few questions...

1) What sort of MPG should I (realistically) be getting on this car if I'm driving mostly around town at average speeds?

2) Does anyone else feel like the gearstick is annoyingly far away? I have very long arms as I'm 6ft 6" and still feels like its a good few inches to far, and too low - I am considering getting some kind of custom extension which would bring it nearer to me.

3) How / Where can I get side steps for the car?

4) If I want to lower the car a bit, is this a big job? Do I just get some new, shorter springs?

5) Is it at all possible to convert this car to an Automatic gearbox, and if so, is it a big job?

Any help, on any of the above questions would be hugely appreciated.

Thanks a lot. B

P.S. Here's the car..
