Following three Omega.

2007 Signum 2.8T.......which is better than the Omega. :y

2015 Jaguar XFR.........which is OK.
Don't be bulling up the sigmund, no one is going to part with the 250 you want for it on here.

WBAC have offered 500....but it is worth more than that to me as a future classic. :)
Yes. There are quite a few future classics knocking around, don't you think?  ;D

In the last 10 minutes I have switched from Saga to the AA for car insurance. New policy 149.02.

Pity the road tax is close to 600. :'(

Ah well......that's the price you pay for owning such a desirable and exclusive car. :)
We are with the AA but pay considerably more than that. But, then again, we don't live in a field.  ;D

Insurance quotes inevitably rise when motorists become old and infirm.

Not much you can do really. :)
There is that. But, what you've got in your favour, the only person likely to try and steal your car is the local scarecrow.  ;D

One or two pigs can drive ' from these parts'....... :)

Didn't you have an expensive Merc of some description for a short while until the thought of the repair bills made you wet yourself and got rid?  ::)  ;D

This topic is much like 'not mentioning the war' in Fawlty Towers.

Emotions are still raw. :-X :)

Since the Omega went I've had :-

1999 BMW 530d E39 Touring
2006 Land Rover Discovery 3
2008 Ford Mondeo 2.2TDCi Titanium X
2004 Volvo V70 2.4D5

All good cars and I still have the Mondeo and the V70. :y

Shame the E39 derv had to be cubed when it was sitting right on the very edge of classic car status and worth  a fortune. :)

Stop fighting, girls.  ;D


To put it in perspective, the repair on the merc cost more than the beemer was worth.  ;D

Still have my three Omegas,and don't see any point of getting rid of them as I still get that old school pleasure of  driving them.The VXR8 gets the odd weekend airing to a car show and it's pretty mental to drive. But I still prefer the Omegas to poodle around in,maybe its possibly a better the devil you know than someone elses old crap thing ::)

My old Beemer is alive and well, and enjoying her retirement in Torquay.  :)

I bought a very low mileage W210 E430 Mercedes after I sold the Omega, just wanted a V8 after having several 6 cylinder cars, not disappointed at all & have had no problems with the old Merc now covered just over 40,000 miles
