It's not an exotic.

YES. I approve. The G-wagon is ubiquitous here in LA, but the AMG version -- not so much. You can hear it from 3 blocks away with that beefy, low-growl rumble. Built like a tank and fashioned to look, well, like it's straight out of the war, it doesn't get much more capable outside or luxurious inside.

With the clientele that car caters to, I'd be surprised if they wouldn't let you plunk it all down on black.

The problem is...... it's the dealers call as to if they will allow the entire purchase to be put on the card.

Membersince my SRT is not leaving the garage. It's staying with me. It's beyond modified. It's race ready lol.

The sound it makes when you start it in the morning and the nascar sound it makes when you floor it off the line is just golden. Not a sound you can replicate with smaller displacement motors or exhaust cans like imports try and do. Displacement is key. Cam lobes.

I want the G65 to augment the collection. I won't modify it.......promise ;)

Liar. Once you start, you can't stop.

My old Subaru had 400chp. The 4runner is on 34" tires and has a lift and big, steel bumpers. I'm waiting to iron out all the kinks and rattles in the Acura before I start tweaking it. Hondata ECU comes first.

Called Amex and asked them about charging the cost of the entire car purchase on the card. They told me based on my history and record I should have zero issues and the charge will not be declined.

Guess now I can try!
