I came to a conclusion that ZF-s are 5 speed. Is there a 4 speed version cause this one has 4 speed auto box?

On it's way from Adriatic sea old ladies radiator decided to crack  >:(


Since I haven't manage to find new one, I decided to by used one, it just happens it came with the rest of the car attached at the back of it

2.5 DTI manuial, full leather, no faults, no smoke (surprisingly)  ac works, rust on usual places. I'm almost feeling sorry for turning her into organ donor..

We completed another road trip. I still enjoy driving her, although low ground clearance and RWD are not the best option for these kind of trips. Most of the sightseeing we done I had to cover with extreme caution, but we succeeded.
New rear springs and shock absorbers are waiting to be fitted ( Omega is sitting low at the back), she needs a new clutch, headliner is sagging, and summer Michelins are on there way out. I'll not chase new 16'' as I'm looking for factory 5 spoke Omega 17'' . Chances are that they will bee attached to the rest of the car  :D
Also I'm planning decarbonization treatment, hopefully we will reduce CO2 emission, and some of that black smoke when driving full throttle. Friend of mine who patented this treatment says that it will improve performance of the engine also.

I got through 3 in 2 months IIRC, before finally managing to get an AR35 which cured it.  Not sure what the 5 speed one was fitted to the 24v common rail TDs that euroland got, when we had to make do with the 2.2dti
