No. I believe it was quite fast for the 1960s, but then the Japanese multis came along, and they were much faster.

True, but the Shadow also looked the business, unlike the Black Knight which succeeded it. I still think the Rapide and Shadow were the most beautiful bikes ever built. :y

Replaced one of the post-cat lamdbas. PITA to get it out, but a mixture of ATF, acetone, heat and impact wrench did it in the end. :y
Blimey Kevin... You're clearly taking the whole MoT thing quite seriously  :D

EML is a fail now, IIRC, and given that the heater in the sensor was open circuit, it didn't take that long for the ECU to realise that it was shot following a reset. ::)

And also discovered the backbox is shot. But I think its original
45 and triple nectar points in January if you purchase from your favorite internet auction site  :y
it's got one of those wire wool rig type donut gaskets though   ,so more expense  ::) and if original , I doubt the 2 special bolts either side of the joint will play ball  :-\

have the speeding and parking fines started landing on your doormat for it yet ?  :o

The GM 90540743 sensor, that you likely need, either from GM/Opel or Bosch should be a Bosch 0 261 210 131. If these prove pricey then maybe consider a Valeo aftermarket which apparently comes with a 5 year warranty @ 23.72 delivered. Please see here. Valeo product is all over European made cars.
The Omega is a fussy sod when it comes to sensors... Go genuine ;)

Factory xenon bulbs are generally 4300k whick gives the nearest thing to a pure white light... 6000k gives the light a bluer tint... which is, in actual fact, darker... Ergo, not an upgrade at all ;D

Osram Nightbreaker Unlimited bulbs readily available in all Omega guises, including D2S. Pricey, but effective and my go to bulb of choice ;)

What about a Corsa?
Vauxhall's are ok, Terry, but other makes are available. Having said that, once any car reaches a certain age, it is bound to have problems.
I guess you like Vauxhalls because you're used to working on them, but Fords are much the same, and abundant. Of course, you wouldn't have the forum to fall back on.
Decisions, decisions.
Quite so. Having scrapped three Omegas last Autumn (MOT rust failures) I sought advice on this forum, and Astras seemed attractive. Road tested one for sale locally 850, liked it, bought it. Splendid car. Bought another 330, MOT failure, on emissions test it seized up, oil starvation. Bought another 795, here we are.

Last new car I bought, 1978, was a Volkswagen Passat, nothing but trouble.  I have owned Austins, Morris's, Fords, Citroens, Peugeots, Rovers and recently Vauxhalls; not to mention a Cotton 250 Villiers twin, a BSA Road Rocket 650, and 2 Velocette Venoms 500.

What? and no Black Shadow Terry? ::)
