Very, very nice car. I wish you a lot of fun with it. I never understood why this didn't come as Opel in continental Europe.
Is there any similarities in driving dynamics with Omega?

You Continentalists got the Pontiac version, the G8, although probably as a dealer special* order ;)

*ie full price up front plus shipping and import taxes...

*And a full tank of super.

Only kidding, theyre stunning cars, MrsGK drove one when she worked at VX and she came home grinning from ear to ear. Just our aort of thing :y :D

Very beautiful car !! For Omega fans in Brazil, Pontiac G8 and Chevy SS are american sporty versions of Omegas imported from Australia until 2012. Unfortunately, GM imported 99% of cars with V6 engines and V8s are very rare here.  :y :y :y

To be honest,I'm a little wary about starting the car up 'out of hours' as it doesn't have the Bi Modal exhaust cut out,and this is one noisy car.Also being supercharged,the car likes a a couple of minutes to settle down from  a cold start, as it's a bit of a handful trying to drive it cold without the warm up......Don't get me wrong,it's  650 horses of scary fun,but with the Batflu affecting the shows and meets,there's not much fun driving it to nowhere at 15 MPG on Nitro+...so I'm thinking to keep it on the road this winter,with the option of taking it out on a dry day perhaps once every couple of weeks,and wait and see to wether Boris and his mates can get a handle on the Batflu.Still going to keep the three Amigos,as they aren't the problem as they all get a couple runs a week on a rotation basis at 6 a.m,and that's where I'd like to use the V8....but it's going to pee the neighbours off..bigtime, guaranteed! ::) ;)
