Where have all the 3.2ís gone?
« on: 28 December 2017, 22:29:13 »

At-up fellas

After a while away Iím back and on the hunt for another Omega, but this time preferably a 3.2 as opposed to a 2.6. The only problem is, where have all the 3.2ís gone? Iíve been looking on here, eBay, Autotrader, etc, but the 3.2ís are like hens teeth.

Answers on a postcard please?

Mine's for sale on Gumtree and Preloved. £500 but you'll need to come to S Wales for it. Like any old car it has issues but if you are handy with the spanners and a welder it is a nice car. Bought a Mitzy Outlander to tow a caravan. I'll miss the old girl.

Yep, they are getting rarer and rarer as people latch onto to certain correspondents / journalists apparently expressing their thoughts that the 3.2 Omega is the one to go for :y :y :y :y :y

My £4000 example looks a better bet by the week!! ;D ;D ;D ;D :y :y

It is worth what I can sell it for if and when the time comes. Rarity will always be a factor. ;D ;)

I personally rate the 3.0 better than the 3.2, each to their own  :y

Performance and Economically wise so do I, less Tree Huging involved, slightly more grunt up the top end as standard, and can easily give a handful of BHP's more for little outlay.

There seems to be more 2.2's being sold both saloon and estate.  I was hoping to find a V6 estate to replace the 2.2 estate I have, can find V6 2.6 saloons at a reasonable price.  They seem to be down country from where I live in Scotland. :(
