Oops.....operator error ::) many thanks for the comments. Sadly will be selling the cars early in 2016 as I've decided to treat myself to a VXR8,finances will be in place by then.I have decided to stop spending the large amounts of money on these cars as they don't really get driven enough. So have decided it's time for just having one car and of course it's got to be a V8 before I get too old to drive  ::)

Nice choice of a replacement.

I know what you mean as I've had recent enquiries from that neck of the woods,thing is I can't keep throwing money at three cars and I know I could keep just one car and throw three cars worth of money at that instead.I just think that for me the Omega thing is coming to an end and I have simply made a decision to have a modern car with loads of grunt,(I got kicked into the weeds the other night by a mini which really pissed me off : >:(:)) and with the expected high running costs of the VXR8 I think one car is going to be financially more manageable than trying to keep three 15 year old cars on the road.....BUT!! no doubt I'll live to regret the decision. ::)

I'm hoping that my budget will nick me a Bathurst edition,and the good news is that I'm going to be allowed to keep one Omega,it's just the matter of which one.I'm a bit worried about the maintenance aspect, but a company called Monkfish have been recommended, but I don't know any thing about them......perhaps they are known to some of the forum members here :y

Change the oil regularly, plugs and filters too, all a doddle and it won't go wrong... unless you constantly rag the living arse out of it.

Pads are 130 a set, discs a couple of hundred, but rest of it is Omega money :y

PS I would probably keep the white one as that's the sweetest :y

Thanks for the info Al, it's all a bit weird as at the moment  SWMBO is being ''tooo nice'' about this,and it has crossed my mind to say....I'll keep em' all and see where it goes. Might start a poll as to my injuries and how long I survive  :-\
