"Der G ohne Asphalt: Angeblich kommen nur Bulldozer und Panzer weiter."

Muessen Sir mehr sagen? [:D] Nope!

As a tangent, I thought the only viable vanity tag for me would be DER G - still not my style but it says it all. Does anyone have a plate that 'gets at' G-ness?

I am not sure how exact this translation by PC translaiton is, but...

Sieger des Kapitel Emotion und Design: der Panda 4x4.
"Winners of the chapters emotion and design:the panda 4x4."

No no no no

Klarer Sieger des Kapitels Performance: Der G 270 CDI
"Clear winner of the chapter performance:The G 270 CDI"

Yes

Doch um den Mercedes im Gelände wirklich zu schlagen fehlt es dem Fahrwerk an Bodenfreiheit, dem Antrieb an Untersetzung und dem Motor an Drehmoment. Sieger des Kapitel Off-Road: Der Mercedes G 270 CDI.
"To really beat by the Mercedes in the terrain, however, the undercarriage lacks ground-freedom, the drive at reduction and the motor at torque.Winners of the chapter Off-Road:The Mercedes G 270 CDI."

Yes

Klarer Gewinner des Kapitels Kosten: der Panda 4x4.
"Clear winner of the chapter costs:the panda 4x4."

Yes, but it depends.

Doch die Tage des G sind gezählt. Nach über 25 Jahren können wir uns auf einen Nachfolger freuen.
"However the days of the G are counted. after over 25 years can please us on a successor we."

Does this mean the new G? Who's waiting for it?

All mack, everytime a none enthusiast asks me what kind of car i drive there's this pause... "uhhh, a silver box". If i say g500 most nobody will know what i'm talking about nor know what to look for.

I recently met someone who hadn't seen it before and as i was driving up (talking to them on the phone) they wanted to know what to look for... they were a little confused when i said "a silver box" until i drove up... then they responded, "you really do drive a silver box".

SLVRBOX

It's been the most tempting one i've thought of so far but i don't think i'd ever bother.

Course for those black g owners they get the play on words...

...Does anyone have a plate that 'gets at' G-ness?
I'm in process now applying for:

IZNSVIN

in Colorado. Had to go phonetic and take some liberties even with that. Can't say much in German with a seven letter limit. That one is probably more appropriate for a 460 than a plushie anyway.

Of course, I remarked to my wife the other day that about the time I finally get the above plate, I'll hopefully be able to run SVO and I might want to switch to:

VEG-G

OK, but does anybody know when is this test to be broadcasted?

In the forum of the Southern Germany G-Club http://www.g-club-sued.de/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=article&sid=27 somebody posted the following:

Seid gegrüßt, liebe Forumsbesucher!

Ende Januar/Februar 2005 wird im DSF in der Sendung "Motorvision" ein Vergleichstest zwischen G und Panda gezeigt. Sendezeiten aus den Programmzeitschriften bitte entnehmen oder einer postet sie hier.

Viel Spaß

mercedeh
which I believe says that the test would be broadcasted by the end of January/February but, has anybody seen it/recorded it? Can somebody host the video somewhere in the internet?

Thanks again for the nice movie. What are they saying about braking on wet road?
The short version:

Both are nearly eqal ... the Panda have a simple breaking system with ABS ... the 2,5to G is having the much bigger breaks with ABS,ESP and the much wider tires ... [8D]

Thanks Arnd,
If 2.5 ton G has brakes that can stop the heavy body as very light Panda does, it either means G's brake system is fantastic or Panda's one is poor.[:p]

Talking of which, I have found yet another Motorvision video feature in their website, albeit in small format.

Go to:

http://www.sport1.de/coremedia/generator/www.sport1.de/Videos/Auto-Motor/Motorvision/Videos/Vergleichstest/Paare/mv103_20Panda_20vs_20Mercedes.html

and then choose "Testbericht" > "Mercedes" > "20 Jahre Mercedes G-Modell"

There is a 8 minute video celebrating the 20th anniversary of the G.

Regards,
