[QUOTE=Nasher;478557]I had a 2.8 LWB Shogun and a later 3.2 LWB which I kept for 6 years, and loved both of them.

The only reason I moved to a LR D3 was the avilability of parts for the 3.2 from non Mitsubishi sources was terrible, and the local dealers were really unhelpfull.

Did you ever try Milner there pretty good, and usually much cheaper than local. even with postage. I know you won't be needing yourself, but this link maybe worth a look for some. exellent price on service kits.

Here's our 3.2 just before fitting bfg's,which are well worth there spend, and save loads in the long run,

Yep, most of the bits i need come from Milner. My uprated springs came from them some 4 years ago and they still look nice and clean ( and bright blue) today... Good quality for sure.

you got to watch what you say on this forum ya big Northern twa*. I've just had Downhilldai on the phone in a terrible state he didn't mind being called a pikey but he was upset cos he didn't have a Shogun and realised what a mistake buying that Frontera was!.

Strangely enough I have a MK 1 Pajero Called BLUES TEAVELLER which I love. He's done 250K STILL GOING STRONG and pulls very well. It's a little iffy if you take speed into a bend but one has to have a bit of risk to keep boredom at bay!

Theres not much of it in this picture, but it towed this Barbarian from Poole to Wells next the sea, the boat weighed 3.499kg it never missed a beat.

Best 4 * 4 I've ever owned absolutely Lion Hearted

Very nice bit a kit you got there Tarbh, I've got the auto myself and agree there great on fuel, I was averaging 26 on cuntry roads when fitted with standard road tyres, which jumped up to 28 mpg when I had the bfg's fitted with only 5mm extra on profile. 30 plus on mway aswell.

That's a lump to tow RW, although dosn't suprise me the mark1 would still pull a house down.

This was my lovely Pajero 3.2 DiD auto. The best towing vehicle i ever owned. Bags of torque.
Being the Jap import it was more refined and had more toys than the UK models, TV's in the seat backs with playstation, rear camera etc.
[/IMG]

This is what my wife did to it on her birthday 3 years ago with my 2 week old little girl in the back.
She came off the motorway in a sudden snow flurry and down a very steep tree lined bank. The trees on the floor have been knocked over by the Pajero. No body was hurt, and the baby didnt even wake up!
I doubt this would have been the case in a Focus or Fiesta etc!
I was following her in my car and watched it happen

This was my old Pajero 2.8 Auto Super Exceed (full leather)
Bomb proof engine. The 3.2 was better on fuel though.
[/IMG]

P.s. Got a Mitsubishi Outlander 2.0 DiD now. Great car, does 40 mpg, but utter pants at towing thanks to its gutless VW/Audi engine and lack of low range box.
