Rare as hen's t̶e̶e̶t̶h̶   feet  :y
But it does have a non CDXi bumper and a "sport" decal on the driver door
(thanks to the previous owner's lack of talent and my spannering )
front bumper needs paint and that black plastic valence thing putting on
if i put it on  :-\ does it serve any purpose ,other than to catch on curbs   ;D

Thanks Lizzie  :)
will be more tidy ,when i get round to it

When I see examples of Omega's like this, and mine, it just confirms why I absolutely love them and will spare no expense and time in keeping them going! :-* :-* 8) 8) :y

Didn't realise about the bumper I thought they were all much of a muchness unless you went Irmscher or something,although I know some have headlamp washers and some don't.is it an Elite bumper then? I suppose there must be some reason for the plastic/rubber "bib" on the lower edge but what that is I don't know it can't surely be for aesthetics alone can it?

The bumper is a Pro-drive bumper off a 2002 2,2 sport , as is the driver door and wing
the "sport model " also had a tiny lip spoiler on the boot too , which i could of got off the donor ,but opted not to  :P
when i got the car, the 77 year old owner ,local to me ,had parked it into a metal railing :'(
I stripped it and found the parts 35 miles away to get it back on the road
I'm NOT a purist , bumper looks ok to me and was a cheap/easy fix
I need to paint the bumper because it has gone dull on the top,between the washer jets

most vauxhalls of the era have the black plastic vallance thing , so there must be a reason for it  :-\
just don't know what  ;D
if it is just cosmetic , i may not put it on ,to me , it does not improve the look  :-\

Mine still has the under bumper "bib" but if it wasn't there I don't think I'd particularly miss it and wouldn't put myself out to find a replacement.I would however miss the bootlid "lip" spoiler as I think it finishes the car off,much like the spoiler on the estate versions tailgate.But yours certainly looks to be in a lot better nick than mine :y

if the snowflake button got my MPG back to the 30mpg+ I had in my manual carlton I probably would  :D
that said, considering the amount of tools etc i carry ,26mpg is probably not that bad
