I could be tempted to sell my 3.2 if I was offered the kind of money its worth to me. I'm realistic enough to realise though, that what its worth to me and what its perceived value is likely to be, are two very different things.
So, I will probably keep it until I think Ive had my money worth out of it, and then sell it for its percieved value, whatever that happens to be at the time.

Certainly rare these days, used to be plentiful examples around.

Think 3.0 was better, but I do prefer the lighter DBW throttle pedal of the 3.2.

Me too......5 at the last count - admittedly though, two are for breaking.....! ::)

Dammit, that's just greedy.

Ideally I'd like an Elite with the manual box conversion and MV6 suspension.

I suppose the other option would be another CDX with leather and find a 3.2 motor and manual box to put in it, or at least the 3.0 cams.

I was watching this one, but have one stuffed in the garage already. Worth a phone call.

I personally rate the 3.0 better than the 3.2, each to their own  :y
Yup, me to, both on power, power delivery and economy.

All leather is at best inconvenient, and the Omega is no different. Uncomfortable when its hot, uncomfortable when its cold.

Best Omega seats, without doubt, are Elite Cloth

I didn't really know much about Omegas when I decided I might like a large automatic, at the same time as one came up for sale on www.autoshite.com in September 2016. 
Having had numerous mk2 and mk3 cavaliers and mk3 and mk4 astras over the years I was aware that the MV6 or Elite V6 were my target, but I would have been happy with a 2.5/2.6 
After more than 24K in the old barge, I reckon my 3.2 MV6 will turn out to be the best depreciating car I've had. As in it's worth more than I paid for it. Which isn't true of many of the cars I've owned, (apart from a couple of mk2 cavaliers I picked up at scrap value and saved from being scrapped, by servicing them and using them)
Would I sell it now ? I'm unsure but I know what figure would tempt me, and it's more than anyone would pay me.

There is a 3.2 ex plod estate on ebay at the moment.

Yea, its a Standard Elite though, rather than a Omega Special (Police Spec) so no Manual Box, LSD or Heavy Duty Suspension set up etc, probably owned by a Gov Dept and Serviced by the Met.

Horses for Courses really on the spec side, seems a nice looking Estate though.  ;)

Last Saturday a mate said he'd seen one for sale[don't know where as I didn't ask]it's a white 3.2 estate and apparently advertised as ex-police,chipped and race tuned with long/full[don't recall which he said]M.o.T. and service history.It's up at £2,500.Make of that what you will.

I've got a 51 plate  3.2 elite 130k that I could be persuaded to sell if some1 really wants it. Not in any rush to sell it though. Wrong side of the pond for most but I can arrange the boat if cost reflects that. Only thinking of selling as Ive bought a 2.2 diesel and don't fancy paying £300 odd a yr in tax for each of them!

I know a chap with an MOT'd 3.2 elite estate, he was looking to shift onto me for circa £400, dented front wing and a bit of rust in the rear arch but as far as I know otherwise fully working, located in Deeside 

PM if anyone is interested as it'll end up being banger raced otherwise !
