Alright guys here with G wagons (or knowledge of them). So although I am very happy with the overall condition on my G wagon it did come with one very $$$ surprise that of course the dealer failed to mention to me. The headliner is sagging pretty bad in the front right section and will need to be replaced.
Anyways my current headliner is the same cheap velour looking / feeling material that I think pretty much came standard in the entire MB line up around that time (MY 2003). However Captruff and I looked at another G wagon here locally a couple months ago and that one had a very different headliner. We recall it being fairly hard (maybe even no padding at all) and it appeared to be made out of some sort of nylon or vinyl type material. Whatever it was it definitely looked like something one would find in a "commercial" type vehicle and we both thought it looked really good in a G wagon. However the problem is we both cannot recall what year that one was but we suspect it must have been a 2002.
So if anyone knows what I am talking about can they please chime in here? If the 02's indeed came with this headliner it seems like it must have been a 1 year deal that MB carried over from the 460 (which again would make sense based on it's appearance). Or maybe it was a Euro thing although the one we looked at did not appear to be anything special or out of the ordinary. Regardless I am just trying to figure it out and get a VIN number so I can look up part numbers on EPC (and pray they are still available).
