What would you buy?

If you were in Germany, and didn't have to pay for shipping to the U.S. (or other parts of the world) and had the ability to buy goods with a 16% VAT discount...what parts and/or accesories would you be likely to purchase for your G?

Here's what I think I'll start with:

SPARES: Water Pump, Timing Chain, Clutch Master and Slave Cylinders, Thermostat, Wheel Bearings, Fan Belt, Valve Cover Gasket.

DOO-DADS: ALUTEC MB Vantastic Wheels (6.5x16H2)
ARB Roof Rack (Extrem Motorsport?), Fender Flares (ORC or MB).

What else would you want from the Motherland?

Thanks, Shawn

How about 6.17 gears (I plan to run 235s w/32" OD on the 240) and the military 5-speed?--(
If you are refering to the old gearbox from MB minivans with 1st. gear=6.17 and 5th.=1 ? -then you dont need 6.17 final ratios to run 32" tires.
Your roadspeed will be terrible low with that setup.

By using that granny gearbox and stock 4.88 diff you get far better crawl ratio than using 6.17 final ratio and the more common 4 and 5 speed gearboxes.
