New Member Intro
Hi - Just arrived as a new member and new owner of a 1988 G Wagen 2 Door SWB 230GE Auto. My Wagen isnt in too bad a condition with some of the expected scabs, and old filler from an old respray starting to show itself, but overall the chassis and structure is very sound. Brakes and Suspension need some improving (not so good in a straight line or braking) and I'd like to look at improvements on power and drivability so any tips on power unit or gearbox/gearing changes are appreciated
welcome, the forum has masses of information and it will take you hours and hours to plough through it, the 230 is a good compromise not as thirsty as the 280 and not such a slug as the original diesels
I'm Italian working here in UK, just joined this interesting forum, unfortunately not jet a G owner but looking to become soon.
I'm doing offroad for more than 15 years with Toyota Land Cruiser and Nissan Patrol so I'm looking for tips and suggestion to make the right choice.
the little Suzuki Jimny is the best value for off road play, the g-wagen is too big and too heavy and often too valuable to risk damage
