    I agree about the towbar,when looking for a VR4 i could never understand why some had a towbar fitted,after all it is realy a performance car first and foremost,but then I do have a dog crate in the back of mine

    Managed to buy some floor mats so thats sorted and picked up some polishing bits and leather cleaner to give it a going over at the weekend. Should look smart will take some better pictures once done. Rather than the forecourt ones .

    And I think towbar can be accident prevention/damage limitation measure

    If you reverse into somebody the towbar takes the strain and if somebody drives into you, they get it from the towbar...

    Well picked the car up today. Very nice drive back home defo the smoothest car ive been in for a long time suspension wise also can`t get over how pokey they are . Very happy with it altho I could not drive it today Grrrr. (broken Ankle at least 7 more weeks before I can take it out ) Got it back home and gave the dash a good coating of Poorboys Natural look which has brought it back to a factory finish. Have ordered some swissvax leather cleaner but nothing turned up today in post so will be a job for weekend as well as a good wash and polish.
    First mod though was a K&N panel filter in the standard box. I have used these on all my cars without any issues and the fact the old was was black it was well worth doing.

    very happy today. We went to Jamsport for a rolling road day to watch the old mans car run and they had a space free so the galant went on. Result was 169hp. With 175ibft. Only 1 mod done the k&n in the standard airbox

    Small update.

    After breaking my ankle when we first bought this its only now that ive been able to drive the car .
    First thought was its great to be back in a N/A car ! Last few cars being turbo`d and never really enjoyed the slight delay in power. The power of this V6 is very suprising too really love the torque of the engine and the sound.
    Petrols really good too (When the Mrs drives it) But most of all like the really smooth ride - use to feel every bump in the road on my last 3 cars so its nice to own something so comfy. .
    As there abit rare only spotted 1 other a sport v6 you do get a few comments. Mainly at petrol stations asking what is it .
    Boot space has been another talking point with a few as its soo big. The new BMW`s etc have nowhere near the same size.

    On the to do list (Even though its the family daily) Better brakes thats the only down side id like to sort out soon. Poss some new discs and xp8 pads lol should stop it!

    Yeah its worth doing I dont think this one has ever had the leather cleaned etc as it was all shinny its ment to be a matt finish. (Swissvax sorted that out) I dont know what the old owner used to clean the windows with but some have some nasty scratchs , are the windows on these soft? Not alot can be done on them other than replace.
    Engine came up really well after a APC (G101) was applied then rinsed off. Some aerospace 303 was used to finish the black trim etc.

    Oil change all done last week , so now runs nice and sweet for another 10k

    I tackled the spark plugs today all went ok just took awhile taking parts off. Was worth doing as the plugs were not too good and were over due a change. . Only bad point was as it was sooo hot today and leaning into the bay working away my top had raised abit from my jeans and I now have a inch burn line mark above my ass.
