Nah, go for peak Douchemobile.

This really is peak douche. The fact that it's illegally registered in Montana and has only 2900 miles is just [chef's kiss] to whatever poser decided this abomination was cool.

You want to know what 3 things don't belong on the same car? Portal axles, alcantara seat inserts and carbon fiber fender flares. I wonder if the owner dresses like Payne Stewart (RIP) when he goes to Top Golf and tells people how his britches make him a better golfer.

Modern G classes are contradictions in terms but this thing is beyond ridiculous. I respect a 40 year old utilitarian G wagen, but these modern ones are are less authentic than a GLS or X7 or any other unapologetic douche-mobile.

It's always a hot girl so it's not so bad.

Ok even I must admit that was pretty impressive



However if hill climbing is what you are buying one of these for, I think there are much less pricey options.

He’s gonna be needing a new front splitter soon, unless the angle is worse then it seems.
Reverse parking makes it a non-issue.

We got those stop blocks at my local car wash, and the legacy just clears them. if i lower the car i'll have to stop before the blocks .

It was. Acura (and Lexus) are US-market constructs conceived by their parent companies as a way to go upmarket and charge more for their highline products. Worked very well in the States. I presume they knew that the Japanese weren’t having it, and didn’t bother doing this there.

Went back to my dealer and they had this little beauty in the showroom. In the exact place where i first saw my car. MSRP $189k, asking $230k. I’d be sorely tempted to sell at $41k over MSRP...
