Thats why my beloved Silver Bullet was the best Omega I've driven to date, even if not quite as quick as Imber's 2.6 :P

Because it was always rusting and loosing weight?  :D

Using 3.2 again today for work, felt much better to drive. Convinced the autobox behaves different in way in behaves.

Not surprisingly given that a) they're adaptive, and b) cold air is more dense, thereby producing a better bang in the cylinders  ::)

I took my Elite to Speedweld at Farley Hill, Berkshire,he's not cheap,but he's a fabricator and does ground up restoration work,he likes all the lower interior fittings removed including all carpets.He did a really thorough job including removing the seats....as I say total cost £1500,so not cheap, the other 3.2 is booked in for the new year with only a minor repair to do,looks like I'm keeping them ::)

I keep a set of new sills about, because one day TBE will need some, and supply can be hit and miss (thanks terry paget for getting a replacement set to me).

I too would suggest trying DLK or Serek to get it fixed if you think the car is still a keeper.

An 8yr old Jag probably won't be rust free underneath, and the XF didn't become all ali until 2015.
My thanks to TB for lending me his spare set of sills, enabling me to have a friend repair my sills while I watched, and  get my daughter's Omega through its MOT. I am now practising my MIG welding for the next time.

Correct Dr G.....BUT! my head has been turned towards the Holden Senator, of which I spied the two that Elite Motors have in stock at their Christmas meet today. Rob's supercharged 5.7 MV6 estate  created a lot of interest amongst all the Monaros and VXR8's.....this one's going to kick some serious arse :y

Its adaptive, so does learn. Quickly, though, not over a period.  I believe its adaptions are based on something like the last 10km.

Feels like it holds first gear longer, it used to change up quite quickly. But off line it feels like it picks up better.  ???

Holds that initial pull before changing, perhaps itís just me being more aggressive on the throttle. I stamp on it more now itís just me and car share buddy on board.
