Front double wishbone suspension with independent rear suspension good for handling and comfort, why not?

Me thinks so too. People are dumping them for so cheap, can buy 2 for the price of a used early model myvi lol

Yup, airbag also tarak. But at least the body is quite rigid structurally unlike other Protons of that era

but its still of that era, not exactly what i would call kuat...

memang a comfortable car at high speeds, so long as u dont pandai pandai lower or install way stiffer suspension.

gearboxes dont torture, tambah atf cooler can last. Anyway im not mistaken these days its under 3k to have it redone. i think its about 2k for a refurb box?

ya memang don't plan to do much. make it fairly reliable and comfy enough. long distance cruiser for cheap

Eterna/ Galant bodies are stiffer right? I see some P owners even swap out the doors for JDM parts

Btw do u know if the 7G Galant front end fits the PV6? The one with the square spotlights look really nice IMHO, without those bullbars

Proton never offered the Perdana with a V6 and a manual.

They only offically offered a manual transmission with an inline 4 engine.

Personally, I rather get a CPS Gen2 or a CPS Waja rather than a Perdana V6 because Perdana may have ABS, but it does not have airbags.

Yes they never made manual ones. Was referring to converted ones

Don't fancy wajas or gen2. They're pricier also

@lsm1991, any thoughts on the sharkmouth Galant? Is the GDI 2.0 any good? VR4?

tbh no opinions on the 2.0, i literally paid 0 attention to em.

the real vr4 i like... but parts are not very common and the turbos enjoy getting cooked.

was seriously considering transplanting this engine into my car, (mind you mines a 'terbalik') but none of the mechs i approached wanted to do it let alone touch it with a 10 foot long pole. they said the v6 is troublesome, now throw in 2 snails all that piping into the small enginebay and its the definition of hell.

Sounds like pure horror. Saw a few VR4 converts going below 30k. Best to steer clear despite how good the beast looks. No time to deal with head aches
