    Hi Everyone,

    Been lurking for a while now and decided to join. I'm looking at getting a Legnum in the next few months so have been reading everything I can find and scoping out the import dealers here in Brisbane on the weekends, haven't had a drive of one yet though...will go via a broker when it comes to the crunch though, dealer margins are just too high.

    My current drive is a 7G Galant (pic attached) with the 2.0L 6A12 motor that I've had for quite a few years now, great car but needs more power! I think I'm one of what seems like six people who actually drive them in Australia! I remember when Iron Chef/Kristian had his 8G Galant VR4 for sale a few years ago and did the sums to see if I could grab it at the time, which I couldn't, so thanks for helping push the SEVS compliance through Kristian and giving us all access to the 8G models.

    Great resource here and good to see a community forming, thanks to all of you who have already got them, very handy for those of us still looking to grab one.

    Dan

    G'day Dan.

    The 8G seems like the perfect step up from what you have now.

    What model & specs do you have in mind for the Legnum ?

    Hi Hawks,

    I have a few things I'd like but am pretty flexible, especially if a good deal comes up. I'd prefer a facelift model, preferably as late as possible with low k's, leather, manual, in white, black or grey.

    In saying that the 2002 model on Iron Chef now looks like a good buy, very similar to yours and at a good price.

    G'day Dan, welcome to the forums :) When you say grey, do you mean silver?? I'd seriously consider adding Trigger Mauve (Purple) to that list of possibilities - that really is such a fantastic colour... and far more reasonable if you REALLY want a manual - there are so few around!

    Not quite! My brother has a silver 7G v6 with sunroof, and my boss happens to have a maroon 7g as well! But yes, they are pretty rare, and parts are bloody expensive for them! We got stuck in Lorne last year after the falls festival - my brother ended up extending his holiday by 6 days waiting on parts to arrive!

    Good luck with the hunt but really seeing as your in Queensland you will have the pick of the bunch locally.

    Yeah it seems that way. I'm just watching and waiting, in 3 months I'll be able to pay cash outright so I'll probably wait until then unless an offer/car too good to pass up comes along.
