Here on sale is my 2003 '03' Vauxhall Omega 2.6 V6 Elite (MF03 ODX).

FULL MOT with no advisories which expires on 18th March 2018.
136k miles
Automatic Transmission
Colour Screen with full computer display and (working) integral Satnav
Full Telematics - The car has it's own Sim card and hands free kit built into the computer
6 x CD Changer
Full Leather
17 inch Alloys in good condition (Rear tyres excellent, fronts still well above legal tread depths) with no uneven wear.
Front and Rear heated seats
Air Conditioning and Climate Control

The owner prior to me, Mr Gatward, was an elderly gentleman, and sadly passed away, which was the reason the Omega was available for me to purchase. He had owned the car since 15th March 2006, so almost from new. Since 2006, he and I have been the only owners, so aside of the first three years, almost the entire life of the car is accounted for. Sadly, I do not believe there is a full service history, as Mr Gatward had the car serviced at an independent garage, rather than a dealer (MW Performance, a GM Specialist in Chester).

There are NO previous MOT advisories for corrosion in the history of the car, as can be seen when checking online. There was one for slight corrosion to brake pipes last year, but not this year. The pipes looked as good as new so I can only assume they have been done (or thinking about it maybe the previous tester was picky)

In February this year, less than 1000 miles ago, I carried out the following work personally:

Cambelt KIT replacement with water pump and aux belt and aux belt tensioner

Thermostat replacement - the heat in the cabin was slightly cool due to the old 'stat being a bit lazy. I have replaced this with a genuine quality part and it now reaches and maintains a perfect temperature.

Antifreeze flush and replacement - At the same time as the cambelt

Oil and filter change using Genuine GM Fully Synthetic Oil with full crankcase breather clean

Air and fuel filter replacements

New GM spark plugs x 6

In addition to this I also replaced both wiper blades for the MOT.

Invoices in my posession include:

18 March 2008 - 91,435 miles - Full Eibach Suspension Kit Fitted plus full alignment - 473.53
23 Oct 2008 - Service - 94,997 - 76.49
2 Sept 2009 - 99,569 miles - Replacement Rocker Cover and spark plugs - 323.66
15 June 2010 - 103,590 miles - Camshaft sensor 105.75
1st June 2011 - 108,311 miles - Crankshaft sensor replacement - 69.85
18 January 2013 - Service - 116,212 miles -  126.22
7 August 2013 - 119,649 miles - ignition barrel replaement 95.02
25 June 2015 - 129,079 miles - Alternator replacement 254.16

Issues:

1) The Paintwork on the top of the rear bumper appears faded. I didn't notice until I was told when I bought the car.

2) There is some slight cosmetic surface rust appearing under the arch on the rear offside. See pic.

3) When you first set off in the morning, the Satnav CD sometimes ejects itself. If you pop it back in, it stays in, and works without a problem.

4) When for example in a car park, at very low speeds, if you corner on full right lock and apply the brakes at the same time, a creaking noise can be heard. I have not been able to identify what this is! The wishbone bushes are all in good shape, and no play or wear can be identified anywhere. I asked the garage about this, who couldn't find it either, and neither was it identified on the recent MOT.

5) There is an error on one of the previous MOT certificates. If you check the certificates, on the GOV.uk website, you will see that the mileage steadily increases at each MOT, but on one year goes back to a lower mileage. The subsequent ones are all correct. This is almost certainly just a human error, as there are no indications whatsoever to suggest the mileage has been altered - especially given that, this was all during the ownership of the previous elderly gent.

6) Lazy drivers door lock. Fine on the key, but doesn't usually work with the remote. Also I only have one key.

Purchased by me with a short MOT for 600. To account for the cambelt kit and other work done plus the full MOT I am asking for 1000. Please do not comment on the price etc if you have no interest - this is a nice example and I'm in no rush to part  :y

I should add, this is for sale elsewhere, including a three day auction on an unnamed website, so if you're interested please be quick :y

Sadly with my beemer back on the road and insured again, and the Mondeo TDCi as my daily hack to work, I don't have the space to keep this beauty  :(

No, the auction website removed my listing because of a potential "security breach" on my account. My password stopped working and I couldn't log in - I had to follow their reset process.

I am about to relist it, and annoyingly I have to list it all from scratch...

Mrs Opti told me it had been sold but she had been looking at Robsey's car.

I suppose one Omega/or any car is much the same as another to a woman.
