Actually got a chance to have a quick measure this morning as I was parked on reasonably level ground while swmbo went for a hospital appointment.
Both fronts from the ground to the centre of the bottom of the wheelarch measured 672mm. And the rears measured 677mm.
Cant remember what the accepted standard figure is. 660 maybe ?

With front and rear that close I wouldn't think thats far off :y

Put a new battery in SWMBOS Subaru , seemed a little hesitant starting this morning ,looking through the paperwork it was still on the original from 2005! So it had done pretty well.

Thanks guys. Unfortunately, here too, Omegas are becoming rare on the streets and roads.

We have, manufactured by GM, Omegas A sedans and station wagons (1992 - 98) and models imported from Australia B and C (1998-2012) generations. Since its launch, the Omega CD has always been the luxury model of Chevrolet, so it has always been expensive, selling approximately 100,000 units (92,000 sedans and 8,000 station wagons) of generation A. The great Holden cars, because they are imported, were even more expensive, with much lower sales (1000 - 2000 units / year), competing with luxury models from BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Honda, Toyota, Ford, etc. GM does not currently manufacture luxury sedans in Brazil and has not provided an Omega replacement.

I did not remember the exact number of models manufactured here and imported, I researched and found accurate data from Omegas here.
Omegas A: 81,061 sedans and 12,221 Station wagons (Supremas) sold and the australian Omegas B and C (Holden VE): 58,458 sedans sold, totaling 151,740.
Sorry for the wrong numbers above.
