As OOF is like the Hotel California, you always come back, get onto the VXR8 & Monaro facebook forum as well Mike. Excellant knowledge and help there, just like here. Went to a meet up at Saffend seafront last saturday night. We then had a noisy procession along the front and through the town to a fish and chip establishment oppisite the Sainsburys where some more noise was made :o. Quite a few of the owners were older than both of us two ;D

 ;D,  will be 21 tis December D.O.B. 7/12/1966 was always crap with figures and numbers ;D

I have to also point out the only reason I am changing cars is due to the ULEZ change next year, zone being extended and the omega not meeting the emission's, could have waited until next year, but that aside never thought I would ever be selling the car and always planned on keeping the omega. But now it will be going back to where it originally came from and to a collector of omega's. So I am pleased about that, car sold :y

Yours is a 2.6 that was tweaked by Mark wasn't it?

What's odd is the 3.2's don't get charged under ULEZ but the 2.6's do  :-\

Yes thats the one, ported 3 litre cams, engine rebuilt, lambda sensors rebossed and moved back from the cats to stop the common EML issue arising, and a couple of other changes  :y

Guilty as charged,but soon to be de wrapped back to the fastest colour...black. ::)

I know very little about a 'wrap'

How much does this cost?.......Is it easy to peel off?

A while ago I saw a Porsche 911 parked by the side of the road and what a rusty dirty heap of shit it was too!  :o  ::)

On closer examination it had a rusty dirty heap of shit 'wrap'.  :D   Someone with more money than sense obviously!  ::)  ;D

It was very well done though I have to admit.  :y

Is that one of the late Senators Ken? Seen an advertising trailer for the Aussie market of one in black. Stunning looking car and I am not a fan of black cars
