Mine was the same ... even to the digi dash. I was sorry to see it go, though the rot had started to set  in  :(

I'd buy another, but rot/rust would be a big concern.

It will take the 3.2 eventually  :'(

I'd have another, lovely engine that straight 6 to tinker on for day to day jobs. Still had a bit of something the Omega's lacked, perhaps the character of that dual ram 4k surge.

If I lost the 3.2 for what ever reason, I would scan the classic ads to see if another was reasonable enough.  :)

There was something about the character of the straight 6 that the V6 doesn't have. :y

After removing the rose tinted specs, however, how many of them made the 225k trouble free miles that my 3.2 is now on, without cam chain issues and so on?

I still miss the digital dash, even after ten years without it. Cant imagine why it wasn't offered as an option on the Omega.  :-\

lol had 3 with over 200 on  and my daily had a spare dash board solely for mot time lol, commute was 65miles each way,never took much notice of the actual mileage, as the engines were bullet proof to be honest, (there were not many that blew camchains), :yand still drove really well,didnt mean to cause further arguements when i dragged this from the archives, but it seems to have revived a ot of good memories for all posters!

Because the Omega already has close to the ultimate in instruments: black dials with clear white numerals. They need the military traintrack to become the ultimate. Traditional Smiths instruments have never been bettered

Mine & Tunnies were of the age that the analogue dash was standard fit, so at least two people preferred the digi dash enough to order it  :y

Exactly, its definitely a 1980s statement.  I had a digidash in my 1990 Astra, and even as a single geeky lad, though it was a bit dated.  I was really glad to get back to proper instruments when the Astra's insurance jumped to over 3k, and it had to go.

One of the few cars I've actually regretted selling was my first Senator B-the second one I had was written off in an accident[not my fault]in Norfolk-I'd be rid of my Omega in exchange for a Senator in a heartbeat-and Both mine were only the 12V versions!
