    2002 Elegance Estate

    Finaly found a mint one after near 3 Months of searching and nearly going for another make
    Lucky this one was only 30 miles away , we had traveled to view 2 cars all of which were 2 -3 hours away and all very bad condition when we got there with lots of rust and issues..

    Anyway this is a one owner car with full mitsi service history 57k on the clock. Drives very well and is nice and smooth as it should be. Condition is VERY good all arches are great and not even any stone chips on the front. All 4 alloys are in great condition with no curbing as per picture.Inside is great no rips in leather and no wear on the momo wheel. Engine is sweet with no tapping no smoke etc. Slam panel is mint not like most with rust around bolts etc.. Defo helped to view a few as when you see "The One" you can tell straight away.

    This will be are family car with are little one on the way in July which means I have to sell my Toy (the Evo) So hence why I wanted the best Galant Estate we could find lol.
    Once we get it home first job will be to remove the tow bar.We then need to pick up some footwell mats and thats about it.

    Looks nice!

    You'll be able to sell that towbar once you're done with it too. Why not leave it on though?

    Not worth the cost, IMHO - unless one is doing mega miles and keep the car for a while.

    I reckon mine would do ~ 35 m.p.g. on a long run with no aircon nor roof box. Best so far is ` 32 m.p.g., IIRC.

    Cheers all

    Well worth the wait.
    Thing I also like with these cars Galants/vr4s/legnums etc Is they are very rare you don`t see them on the road all the time.

    Well... the misses is driving around 25-30K km (= around 16-18K miles) per year. Which is quite expensive on petrol using the Legnum VR4... The V6 N/A is lighter, has better MPG and LPG conversion is less critical compared to doing it on the VR4. And I'll probably be driving galant/legnums for quite another few years...

    Yep all are in that condition I was very shocked. I wont be changing them due to the condition. (Just hope they stay in that nick with the Mrs driving) Just shows it was very well looked after by last owner though.

    Those wheels are very soft - tell her not to bounce up kerbs and avoid potholes!

    It does look good. Hope you enjoy it for a good while!

    Sorry - I didn't mean to sound like I was doubting her driving ability. It's just that those alloys are well known for their lack of ability to stay round.

    Thats a lovely looking car... Looks in great condition. Nice find!

    The interior of the elegance is so very nice too, it's a shame not many VR's came with the same interior as std.

    The towbar ldoes not look out of place to me, plus they do well in saving your bumper when taking the brunt of someone rolling into the back of you ( at low speeds )

    Indeed the vr4s need leather they do look atad old in side.
    Tow bar will be off as soon as we get it home. I just hate them on a car that will never tow.

    It was on Pistonheads and Ebay fella. As I was checking the site alot during the day as im off work with a broken ankle I was on the phone within 10mins of the car being live. 9am next day we had bought it. It was only 30miles down the road too which was great so was worth a drive to check it out. Viewing the others helped too as , as soon as we saw it and looked under the bonnet we could tell this one HAD been well looked after.And after the test drive this backed it up with a very nice smooth drive. It was an old guy that had it before us and he was only doing 5k a year according to the mots. All service work had been done by Mitsubishi too.

    Did you have any luck with that one up in North Scotland?
