Default Pics : Mercedes GL Class

Not sure if pics of the GL Class have been posted anywhere on the forum, so I've started a new thread.

Spotted this Brabus badged GL320CDi in Andheri yesterday. Looks huge and has an amazing road presence.

I guess that was the Brabus M Class and not the GL.

I find the GL to be the most uninspiring car from MB. After all the curves & banglaling designs this one is completely boring I think the new Landcruisers looks better and has stuck to its heritage. Saw this one at Mount Merry and it looked worthless. Saw a black one 6 months ago that to looked useless/no better.

No that is not a M-class, its a GL itself.

I've seen somany colours in GL from Dubai. Most of the colours other than Silver are attractive, but the black & the white atrracted me the most. More the G550 (US spec) look awsome with a bigger grille, wider wheels arches & sporty 5-Spoke alloys.

Looks like the GL is getting quite popular in India. Its got a certain class to it,and IMO its better than the ML series.
OT:a ex-colleague of mine owns a GL,and its sad to see how she maintains it.Interiors are a mess,with food and all sorts of junk strewn around.And if it wasn't enough,she drove the thing with the spare wheel for well over 1000 miles,before getting the punctured tire fixed.

This is the GL 320 with a Brabus badge on it. There is also a Black 320 and a black 420 in the city. i have seen all three cars a number of times. The ML is smaller as it is a 5 seater and these are 7 seaters. I find the looks in person to be too boxy compared to the ML.

Oh, that might be the black GL which a Bombay dealer was offering at 95L.

The two black GL's mentioned are owned by friends of mine. There is another with a dealer. So three blacks and one silver in Bombay. My mistake. I also believe there is a GL 500 here also in Black, but i have my doubts. I was informed of this last night by a fellow member.
