Yes, I'm sure they would sell him one.I know he is in US but I´m sure Entdecker would sell him a vehicle if he has the $$$. And I also know you can build a almost identical car yourself. In fact that is what I´m doing. But I don´t think it is a lot cheaper if you want all the options and the same quality parts. And if you start out with a new US spec G you pay for LOADS of electronics you don´t need and are most likely to have you stranded and/or causing you problems WHEN it malfunctions.
If he wants a "offroader" to cruse up and down Hollywood boulevard, go buy a AMG G65 and fit some bigger wheels and a roofrack
An Entdecker is ~$200k+. Even starting with a brand new G you'd be under that price(again, minus a turbo diesel powerplant), as most all of the high quality parts on it are available stateside. IMHO it's a loss of money to buy a brand new G, vs a barely used one, or a gently used one(save even more).
Agreed on the more electronics the more potential headache.
Jim isn't looking for a blvd cruiser, as seen by his LR3 build.
Have fun with your build!
