Not a bad car mate. I quite like cars that are abit unique and out of the ordinary. Much better than your average Camry and Magna of that era.

I've been in the Galant one model later that yours with the 2.0 V6 and i must say it's not bad and seems very refined. What did you do with the electronic suspension, did you just replace the shocks with normal ones?

Thanks Strider. Yeah it's not a bad car, quite heavy and under powered though. But they do handle great.

The suspension is my own "custom" "sick moit" job : )

Nah, what's happened is one of the sensors has failed, so i disabled the eloctronic suspension control, now it's sitting on the bump stops pretty much. Handles great, but there is no travel what so ever, and i should probably be wearing a kidney belt.

nah mate, it's totally stock (non turbo), and i don't plan to do any mods. I'm basically just spending a minimal amount on it as i want to get something new next year hopefully, or if i can wait for a couple of years, get something REALLY nice...

My mate in Canberra has got a silver one of those, sitting a bit lower than that with chrome 17's on it, and I gotta say they are pretty nice cars hey, goes pretty quick for what it is.. and the 5 speed in it seems pretty good too.

I love the idea of having the electronic controlled suspension in it, and was amazed when I first saw the pitcure of the car with the ride height settings, and also the softness of the suspension settings.. although by the sounds of it everyones elec suspension has been failing so they just drop them on their ass :)

I rekon put on clear front indicators, a set of rims and those cars are pretty cool. Top stuff JEM.
