Hi all

Does anyone have a pic of a preface (pref an estate) on 18" evo stars please?

Many thanks


I need to replace all 4 speakers as 1 in front and rear have started quacking. Ill be running them off the headunit (cant be bothered with amps wiring etc) which is a sony dsx s100. I know the fronts need the (corsa?) adapters to fit, do the rears need adapters aswell?

What is recommended?

Many thanks

General Car Chat / Vauxhall should have a refreshment service
« on: 22 November 2015, 21:36:19 »
Having been to Ellesmere port i couple of times for factory tours seeing griffins been built from ground up, ive wanted to see them offer a service of were you take your car and it gets put through the production line again refreshing all worn parts from the ground up.

Its maybe a silly thought that would never be financially viable but to have a brand new omega at the end is something id love to see.

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Heater resistor wiring
« on: 22 November 2015, 17:22:37 »

Does anyone have a pic of the wiring to the heater resistor please?

Mine has been bodged together i assume because of the faulty climate panel which i have now replaced. Heating was controlled by 2 mickey mouse switches connected to the heater resistor. Now i need to know what wires connect to what terminals.

From the climate panel i have 2 spare wires - black with blue stripe and brown with white stripe.

Mine is a p plate 3.0 elite estate with climate

Many thanks


Omega General Help / Replacing/upgrading MID
« on: 11 November 2015, 21:18:41 »
Can someone point me in the right direction please?

My MID is unreadable, missing pixels etc. After removing it and opening it (to attempt the repair it using the guide), I found that the ribbon has a split in it where it joins the PCB. At very least it needs replacing with the same or upgrading preferably with the CCRT display or the better MID.

Heres a pic of mine I took when I had it out


Would it be possible to upgrade to the CCRT display? would it be any different to changing to the other single MID type?

From reading other posts id need the plug with as much length of wire as poss, anything else?

Thanks in advance
