For Sale: 2003 2.6 Elite Estate Silver
« on: 16 July 2015, 21:19:11 »

Registered 10/9/03
Vauxhall 1st owner then 1 person before me
I bought it on 3/3/07 @ c. 29,056 miles.
This is my 3rd omega and I love them.  I sought this car out in Ď07 as I wanted to buy one of the last Elite estates of the line.  I found it on Auto Trader through their useful saved search facility.
Current mileage 103,608 although Iím using it on occasions, so itĎll rise a little until sold.
Iíve bowed to pressure from the wife and bought an MPV and so unfortunately I now need to sell.
Runs great, no knocks or bangs.  Gearbox changes smoothly & Sport/Snow modes work as they should.
No tow bar so never worked hard.
Never been smoked in.
Original (I assume) First Aid/Emergency kit
Iím an Advanced Driver so stick to the limits, and get 32+ mpg on motorway runs.
Full Service History: First 6 at Vauxhall Main Dealers & the rest with the same independent (ex. Vauxhall) mechanic.
04 @ 8,944
05 @ 18,341
06 @ 25,285
07 @ 36,208
08 @ 46,278
09 @ 55,608
10 @ 65,643
11 @ 74,933
12 @ 83,501
13 @ 89,501
14 @ 97,895
Next MOT due Sept 10th
Only Vauxhall parts ever fitted to the best of my knowledge
Radio/Cassette/CD player CCR2006 with Bose Custom speakers Ė all works fine although Iíve never used the CD player as I connect my iPhone through the Cassette player
Velour interior in good condition
Bluetooth Mobile Handsfree car kit fitted (Nokia CK-1W) which interrupts & plays through the stereoís speakers. Comes with user manuals
2 keys
Heated seats, mirrors & rear window work fine as does dipping rear view mirror
Sun roof, electric windows & headlamp washers works fine
Has luggage guard
Air con is cool.
Will come with all paperwork (incl. MOT certificates back to 2006), Owners manual, Quick Reference Guide, Audio manual, Service book, receipts, original 2003 dealer brochure (edition 2) which has a wealth of information in it, even though itís not pristine.
Vauxhall Locking wheel nuts
Spare tyre used on 3 occasions only.
Parts
14/9/07 OSF Central Locking Motor (Vauxhall) with receipt
29/8/08 OSF Door check strap (Vauxhall) with receipt
10/9/10 Heater Control Valve (Vauxhall) with receipt
July í10 New Cambelt (@ 63,220 miles)
7/1/11 Battery
23/8/11 New Front Discs & Pads
23/8/11 New Rear shock absorbers
25/11/13 Centre & Rear exhaust
20/6/15 New (budget) front tyre due to recent puncture
The rear tyres are nearing replacement time, but they are above the tread depth indicators

Whatís wrong with it ?
Some age related scratches.
Wheels have a few scuff marks and the lacquer is peeling in places
Power Sounder removed as the 2 small batteries were end of life Ė as per the suggestion on the Omega Forum. I couldnít find the replacement batteries so Iíve not re-fitted as yet.  Parts will go with the car.
Parking sensors donít work (hence the slight ding on the rear bumper !)
External temperature gauge doesnít work
Front Fog lights donít work Ė I have second hand parts & plan to fix them before selling
Water Coolant expansion tank low water sensor has recently given up - I have a second hand one that I plan to fix before selling
Climate Control doesnít work Ė I understand itíll be the hedgehog but havenít got round to replacing it yet.  Itís been like this for c. 9 months and I have to say itís not a hardship.

Overall itís a pretty good car that Iíd rather not sell.  It always starts first time and I have no hesitation driving it long journeys Ė weíve been on many holidays to central & southern France without any concerns.
It does have the odd gremlin creeping in, but I think for itís age itís been well looked after and in good condition for a 12 year old car.
Having said that I do need to sell and would like £1,500, but will of course listen to offers. 
I want it to go to a good home with someone whoíll continue to look after it. Iíve tried to be as honest as I can about the car, but if you want other pictures or have further questions, please do get in touch.
Hopefully my pictures will appear here...

I understood previously that it was every 60K, although I now believe that 40K is the new 'Spec.'. I Appreciate they have an age limitation too - that I now understand is every 4 years... amazing how time flies.  I'll obviously take that into account on the price.
