Good finds comfortablywacky. You n your cam seem to have been sleepless through the night. The black M is much much better than the dark green one. The dark green one is not maintained well enough. The only thing better in the dark green one is "ML430", rest the black rules.

I'm sorry guys... but those are not BRABUS ml's. It an insult to call them anything of the sort. The green ML has a simple Mercedes fender flair kit which costs1,000 USD. I'm sure in Bangkok it would be half the price. The front grill is not brabus, the wheels aren't brabus, the brakes aren't, the engine hasn't been tuned. the interior hasn't been done. Has no exhaust system... So how exatcly is it a brabus????

This is what a brabus does...

For ML 430, ML 500, ML 55
  • BRABUS B10 tuning kit for ML 430, 306 hp / 225 kW. Export only!
  • BRABUS B55S tuning kit for ML 55, 379 hp / 279 kW.
  • BRABUS 5.8, for ML 430, 400 hp / 294 kW, 597 Nm, 240 km/h
  • BRABUS 6.1, for ML 430, ML 500 and ML 55, 426 hp / 313 kW, 621 Nm, 240 km/
This is what the look like...

if you think the X5 is wayyyyy better, then i don't think you've driven a 2002 onward ML. Also the ML 55 AMG is amazing, Leave alone mentioning Brabus Ml's...
They put the cayenne's to shame. Yes, i am talking about TURBO'S.

Sir, Sorry to say, the spare wheel kit is NOT a standard fittment !!
at least not on the post 2003 models.
The CBU imports didnt have it, I have 1 of these cars a 2005-ML350. its an optional extra at Rs 1.50 lacs. The spare is below the boot.

Like i Said IMO == In my opinion

and yes i have driven the 2002 and 2003 ml320's and 430's extensively in the US .... and no use comparing the ML 55 which is AMG tuned to an X5 which the M division of BMW did not have a chance to work on.
Brabaus ML's to X5 is not aa comparo either .... if the x5 was schnitzered or Dinaned then it would have been a tru comparo

also if you have seen the new ML's to the X you might have noticed an alarming similarity to the X... why so ... coz MB wants to imitate the x on the SUV/MUV(whatever you call it) market... incase you havent here is a link

ML350





X 5

Okay, and how about the the ML 350 and 500's??? you don't think those drive just as nice, if not better than the X5's???
Also, they only made the 430's till 2001. it might have been a bit hard to drive a 2002 and 2003 model.
