A couple of pictures of my 2002 Mitsubishi Galant GTZ.

It has leather, traction control, 3.0V6, Sport Suspension.

I put 19x8" Motegi DV5 (Gunmetal) with 235/35-19 BFG KDW2 tires.

Not a fan of the Galant, but i must admit yours is the nicest looking one ive seen. Looks very clean. Not overdone. You have good taste.

Yeah, I agree nicely done, I especially like the wheels. Is that the same 3.0L V6 they used in the Eclipses? What's it got for power accessories and neat features?

Thanks for the compliments (both of you).

ILC8792 - Yes, its the same V6 thats in the Eclipses. As far as accessories and neat features? Well its full power, traction control, Stability Control, Power drivers seat, leather, sunroof, etc etc.

It lacks navigation and heated seats, but for the model line its top of the line, not to mention much nicer than my other one. I used to have a 4cyl, but wrecked that. I think I've upgraded.

Thanks again for the compliments!

The wheels were a long process and I'm very happy at the turnout. Eventually I'll put a full suspension damper kit, intake and exhaust on it and that will be it. Later I'll buy a Porsche 911, CTS-V, Lancer EVO9, or a Infiniti G37 coupe, thats probably in the fall.

Did you used to own a Caddy or something? I noticed youve got a few posts under your belt but not sure what brought you here. Its a pretty car though, not my thing either (though I drive everything from Lincolns to Lexuses) but definitely the nicest Ive seen.

Never actually owned a Cadillac. When I was i limbo between cars I found this site I was looking a purchasing a Cadillac CTS. They ended up a little more pricey than my budget allowed for at that time. But I'm looking to buy another car in the fall (after we buy the wife a new SUV). I'm tossing up between a CTS-V, a Porchse 911, Lancer EVO 8, or a new Infiniti G37 coupe.

Either way I've always liked the Cadillacs and I've dealt with many Cadillac dealerships and vehicles so I have some familiarity with them.

So I take it that when you say you've dealt with many Cadillac dealerships, that thats a plus toward the V or a negative?:confused::alchi::histeric:

Those BFG tires are nice and sticky, planning any AutoX events?

Just be careful in bad weather and they do have a low treadwear rating.

My one experience with Mitsubishi wasn't so pretty. It was a 1995 Diamante fully loaded that needed a rear main seal with only 40K miles on it.. I sold it so it became someone else's headache.

I've dealt with the majority in the metro Detroit area. All seem to be rather decent shops, and the primary dealer I've dealt with as always treated me and my customers fairly. Not to mention I know the GM of the dealership personally :)

The Cadillac I've seen and serviced always seem to be in great shape. The owners never usually complain about a lot. We've seen and serviced anything from Sevilles, STSs, CTSs, STSVs, CTSVs, XLRs. Basically the entire model lineup from the past 15 years.

96Fleetwood - No AutoX for this car. Its a cruiser as it sits. I won't likely ever do anything like that with a four door unless its a Lancer Evo or CTS-V.

I know this thread is a bit old, and I haven't been on this site in a while. But I've made a few updates.

Real Carbon Fiber (Overlay) armrest. I know its not perfect, but at least its a good start.

Don't mind the audio, for some reason the transfer to photobucket never catches the audio properly.

I also lowered it with Megan Racing coilovers. They have 32 levels of adjustable dampening, full ride height adjustment, and damn good handling to boot. I also installed a 22mm ADDCO rear sway bar. It is 3mm larger than stock, and coupled with the coilovers the car can three wheel on tight turns, its really a blast to drive.

^Clean those leather seats!!!!

Looks nice, but I still think that's one of those cars you leave stock and drive until the wheels fall off or pawn it off on somebody else when you know it'll be a money pit.

Only cool Galant was the early 90's VR-4. Luckily they still make those, its just called an Evolution now days.

A stated by others, not my favorite car, but your certainly looks nice. MI salty roads do take their toll. Where exactly do you call home?

Also, are you 100% sure it has STABILITY control? ABS/Traction, yes. But stability on a 2002 Galant would be news to me. No reason to doubt it if you say it is so, but seems kinda advanced and costly for the model/year.

Wow, I didn't remember writing stability control. No it doesn't have it, I wish it used the same system the Japanese Galant VR4 pioneered (which later came out on the Lancer EVO). AYC - Active Yaw Control and ACD - Active Center Differential.

And I live in Chicago now.

The VR4 system would be great. You certainly did not escape the salt by moving to Chicago either!
