For that money you could buy seven omegas and make one good one from the bunch, flog the scrap shells for a few hundred quid. and then use that to fuel it for a week.  :D

I might be doing the equivalent of whizzing in the Holy Font of omeganess here but...

I really really dislike the look of that thing. The wheels, body kit, steering wheel all of it, it just looks cheap and nasty to me. Give me a plain old Elite any day,

I'm with you: the Irmscher stuff always looked cheap and nasty to me. I was astonished how expensive it actually was.

Just seem to look a bit of an afterthought , and with high kerbs etc going to catch all that low plastic or whatever it's made from always look tacky in my opinion.

That white one wasn't lowered as I used it for work :y

Never been a fan of the cow catcher front lip on the black one.

Fwiw, the Irmscher stuff is made from the exact same material as the factory bits, unlike the God awful fiberglass shite that you can buy for the same money :o

What's your opinion of this...

Well, the top edges of the bumpers fit properly(unlike Irmscher ones), but the lower edges and sill covers are just as ugly.
And the two tone interior is tacky as hell.

 ;D you're not wrong about the interior, it's looks an absolute bastid to keep clean on a daily driver so people don't both which makes that one kind of unique...

That said, if you're spending that sought of cash new, why would you not pay the extra for a unique colour rather than that standard two tone :-\

I was never a fan of the irmscher body kits on the Omega either, although I quite liked it on Twiglets car with the wheels etc to go with it. Despite the fact I advised him against doing it.
Still probably would have kept it standard if it was mine.

That's better than the Omega , wheels are great would like a set for my E430, the interior of mine in plain grey leather looks much better.

He sold it to a woman in Scotland, and last I heard he was planning on buying it back. Don't know if it ever happened as I lost touch with him several years ago.
It was a stunning example indeed.  :y
