newbie MV6 owner
« on: 24 March 2019, 17:39:49 »

Hello, i am looking forward to finding out more from you Omega chaps, having spent a long time as an Autobahnstormer and having been involved with Lotus Carltons since building and racing one in the late 1990s.  I have now finally graduated to an Omega B, having just purchased what i hope is a nicely looked after MV6 3.2 auto.  I'll post up some images once I pick it up this week.

Finally got to drive my MV6 home after sorting all the paperwork/insurance etc.  After much trepidation over the past few days, I was relieved to find that despite a couple of little niggles (the main one being no A/C on nearly the hottest day of the year so far) I am not disappointed at all. In fact I shouldn't have worried because it drives just like an underpowered and underbraked Lotus Carlton, which I am quite familiar with.  Being an auto too, it is much less physical, and I'm looking forward to a longer drive where I can learn more about it. Pictures will follow at the weekend once I get time to get to grips with the process of posting them.

You can see why I'm pleased with my purchase (despite the cost!)

I suspect that you have used links to temporary dropbox thumbnail files that we can't see - you need to link to public files, I don't know whether this is something that is possible on dropbox :-\
