2.6 Elite replacement as promised.......
« on: 07 August 2017, 18:29:29 »

Well I said I'd keep you posted  :y
It's true to say that I loved my Omega, and it served me very well with very little trouble to be honest. And I absolutely loved the sapphire black  8).
However, what do you replace a luxurious 4 door saloon with that could tug the heart strings as much as my Omega did  :-\

OK, not quite in the bargain luxury barge market.... Mercs/Audis/Beemers/Phaetons/ ..if you're into that sort of thing - not exclusive enough for me ::) - Mondeo's and Insignia's are rarer nowadays  ;D - even the love of my life Range Rovers are just a little bit 'nah!' now - too many around and they've diluted the brand too much for my liking
This ticks about every box for me and I get the V8 every man is entitled to own to prove his status on the planet  :y....and there ain't that many around  ;)

Even Maser's had a facelift model Quattroporte ;D
4.7 GTS Sport  :o :o



No amount of excuses is ever going to put this in the sensible corner  ::)..... but what the heck, life's too short  :y . The sound turns your knees to jelly, press the loud button and the rest of you follows  :-X

Cheers
Ian.

Looks lovely, I have a similar plan since the ghibli s came out although I'd keep both in the garage and have a run about for day to day use

;D - I think they were so lost for words with its beauty, they couldn't think of anything else - it obviously sounds a lot sexier if you're not Italian  :D

Distinctly Italian looks, yet unique. And looks a nice place to sit.

Hope it serves you well, and you get time to drive it rather than just polish it :y

The fancy clock does have the nastiest, cheapest looking radio directly underneath it though.

Like the Omega, it has a Bose system  :y - must admit though most of the time so far I've had the window down and the radio off - the music outside is too good to miss  :y
Yeah not the best - probably out of the Fiat bin  :P

Thanks TB - it's tearing me apart - decisions decisions. I have to weigh up every time I start it, it costs me 3 quid probably - polishing is free if you don't count the cost of the wax ....ahem - I might need more wax - special wax  ::)

To 'justify' a beautiful 4.7 litre V8 Maserati as a viable Omega alternative is quite a stretch. :D ;)

The Italians do passion better than the Germans....who are better at pragmatism than passion. :y

Three of them, but you only spotted one.
One day at a time, rocky mountain way and In the city are also Joe Walsh songs.  :y
