Don't let it be so, I promised myself I will get a GU when they stop selling them. But there is no way in hell I can afford one now :surprised:

Well, it seems that this is the way the world is moving...

Read somewhere recently that the next Gelandwagen will also have IFS.

Sad day.
the new 350 D is ready for launch :lol: :lol: :lol:

I reckon my 4.8 may well outlast me. I bought it in June 2013 - going on 5 years now - and its only got 46k km on it now. If its good for 500k km, at this rate it'll still be running 50 years from now...by which I time I will have long since run out of road. I really did but it thinking it will be my last 4wd, but really knows? That Y62 is sexy! :-)

Incidentally, I'm a huge believer is beam axle-and-coil-springs but I kind of get the sense that similar debates were happening when cars went from leaf springs to coil springs... Time will tell!

I was in Liberia last year, the UN there only operate with Patrols, saw very limited Cruisers. In Sierra Leone again it was only Cruisers....

I saw the Y62 first in Liberia....
