I have a 2005 G500 with 45k miles and it's been running well so far as a daily commuter. My CPO warranty is going to end soon and I am thinking about upgrading my idler And tensioner pulleys to Karl's aluminum ones and have an extra spare bearing for them. If you were planning for a SHTF situation, what other spare parts or upgrades would you guys recommend? I am thinking an extra serpentine belt, fuses, light bulbs, spark plugs... Are there any known problems with G500s in the long term? It'll be great to make a complete list of all upgrade and also backup spare parts. I'll start below.

Upgrades
Aluminum pulleys
Mercedes M113 Idler Pulley
Mercedes M113 Tensioner Pulley

Spares
Serpentine belt
