    Default G Class BLING Project

    Inspired by DeeDee's Unimog Punga Project, I am exploring options to get into a project. My requirements is to have a vehicle with the following capabilities: -City Driving for Daily Use -Trail Driving for Offroad -Luggage Capacity for Weekend & Long Trips -Creature Comfort -Minimum 7 passenger capacity Following is my budget: -Project Vehicle acquisition: 200,000/- -Monthly available funding :
    100,000/- x 3 Months
    Total Budget available :
    500,000/-
    Project options that I am considering are: -MB G - Class 5 Door Diesel -LR Defender 110 5 Door Diesel G Class BLING Project -568542
    G Class BLING Project -568543
    I would request all the members to give advice and suggestions on the above options, and most importantly where I can source these vehicles for my Project. My preference is the MB G Class as it can be converted into a proper SUV with the G55 AMG looks.

    @baryar
    that maroon one is dead, the engine is weak, transmission is noisy and overall not in a good mechanical state.

    @flunk
    this one is WAY past it's expiration date and the seller is only asking so much money because it WAS a mercedes. it's a W461 and an early one at that, it's worth less than 1 lack in my eyes.

    @PUNK

    Thanks for the heads up, however I see is that this is a 3 door. Looking for the longer wheel base. By the way where is this standing. Maybe the guy who owns it may help in sourcing a 5 door one.

    @baryar

    I did called up the Maroon G class guy some months back to check on the vehicle. But he was asking too much besides. I want to fix up the vehicle properly with good interior, exterior, and mechanics. Hence, the vehicle acquisition price is not within my budget.

    @wasif & amir

    Where can one find parts for G Class within Pakistan. I have heard about Peshawar for having parts for anything, but can one be sure of sourcing something from Peshawar, specifically for G Class?

    It seems like I would have to invite the owner of the G Class (maroon) onto this post, so that you guys can help me negotiate a price within my budget. :-)
