Ran 3 1.8s to 500k between them with little more than routine servicing... Can't fault them.  :y

Highways would be my guess. The shogun is a favourite of the road wombles and I can see them clocking up that kinda mileage.
Wash your mouth out with kerosene... Blasted millennial  ;D

Recently stopped throwing people on an off planes in order to get a pay rise working for an agency throwing pallets out of a 26t frosty box. And as it's nearly winter, will also be snow plowing runways. Which is nice 8)

Back to the Shoguns, Security have been using them as a weapon of choice since at least 2006 along with a fleet of ten hybrid Outlanders... Can't honestly recall what they had before  :-\ Disco 2 s perhaps  :-\

Recently replaced the more knackered Shoguns with new Hilux, but still using Mitsubishi Shogun and L200 along with some new Izuzu Dmax for various roles ;)

Mercedes ML will tow 3.5t, license permitting...

Cheap enough to be disposable  ;)

Mitsubishi and Hyundai both reliable, but any significant repairs will cost Some of our older Shotguns, '57/8 have done nearly 300k miles, but still fetch well north of 3k at auction :o

Gollum. What do you do?
Sit on Fair Isle pestering Hobbits, eating fish and the occasional puffin tourist*

*taste like salty chicken in case you wondered :D

Vectra C also worth a look... Wear mileage well and start from 250... Just avoid the dti and 2.2 petrol :y

Is Haynes for the older Omega, I cant find one for the 03 years?
How do I know if plumbed backwards? has anyone the pipe order and where they go too?

Thanks for all the advice
Mick
And? They're fundamentally identical  ::)

Put another way I wouldn't have bothered to suggest it if it didn't answer your question  ;)

Put a clutch in the Omega whilst you choose. Don't forget that you will be choosing long term, so don't rush it :y
It's a 4 cylinder, 18 years old, and rusty. I doubt it will pass MOT next year. Doesn't seem worth a new clutch.
Anything you buy may not pass its next MoT ::)

Might as well buy anything ticketed for as little as you can and throw it away when the MoT runs out.

Possibly time the kids sourced their own transport as well, but that is a side issue...

Just thinking that if you have to cut the lease short the penalties might cause you issues and the last thing you need is to opps the whole thing up due to what is effectively an impulse purchase :-\

Is it worth leasing if you're off soon?

Better to buy summat suitable, if older to see out your time in Blighty  :-\

Stripped the plenum and intake off of kitty to replace a breather elbow that was leaking and causing the EML to come on randomly.  Changed the coils and plugs while I was at it and had the dreaded coolant hose plastics break on me too so there was another 120 quid in parts.  Swapped out the stabilisor rods and drop links too as they were shot.

Anyone would think an MOT is on the horizon ::)

Looks like I has shagged it  :'(
Eek

How badly  :-\

Only if you take a selfie and post it up :D

Haynes do one.  :y

Sounds like you have plumbed the hbv in backwards.

Smoke is never a good sign. But diagnosis over the phone/tinterweb won't work with previous butchery :-\

One for Serek in Huntingdon given your location.
