To sum things up, it is a free capitalist enterprise conundrum and that is - consumer's goal of utility maximization and consumer's expenditure minimization. We know free enterprise is not the best but it sure beat socialism.
You have to read and do your hw. I can't short cut economic theory in 5 minutes....sorry.

one thing i learned the 17 years i drive G :
if you buy OEM parts and restore or repair your G you get back your money each day , adrian cox G is a very good example .
if you take care about your G over all the years you have a high value , this is a kind of " following the money too " .
i have had a mitsubishi pajero , my mum too , these have been rolling graves , every cent i earned has to go into this scrap vehicle and as everyhting was repaired i could sell it for 1500 euro only .
the value of the G is high only when you use OEM parts and not duct tape . at least it happend this way to me and i know that from thousand of my customers who buy OEM parts from me daily .
mfg. guido .

I dont see why they did not make the G with a walk on bonnet from day one then continue with it for all models. Certainly would add to its appeal along with all the other unique G features.
And I dont think Mercedes have always been the best at engineeriing solutions, look at the bonnet on the W461 300CDI with those god aweful bulges - an afterthought if I ever saw it.
