The rubber wheel arch extensions and headlight blanks were something of a turn off... When a nice Omega made a grand the skidpan cars struggled to hit £300 :D

Those were the days...

 I was lucky,, mine hadn't been given those extras, only mod it had was the cut and sensor wire, and being a met car was auto,, so not as wanted.

Not helped by all the ex Met silver 530d that were being dumped at 3 years old with destroyed dashboards... Those got more attention than a Nun in a brothel.

Got some good parts off the last Police ex skid pan white 3.2 Omega estate I found in a local breakers a few years ago, still supporting its rubber wheel arch extensions and its front corner impact which probably saw the vehicle off - all GM rear springs, self levelling rear shocks, genuine GM wishbones and complete front struts... all were coated in dried up oil soaked dirt, which had protected them, but underneath this they were as new with rust free metal and original GM labels. The shocks and wishbones are still on my car to this day....the struts and rear springs still 'in stock' for when needed. At the time, I didn't think to check the diff though.... >:( :o

Shame that wasnt a saloon. I  would have been interested in the rear springs.

Hi to all OOF members, after a long time absent from this forum Hello.
Wanting to get back into Omega Ownership again!  ::) So now hopefully looking for a Police Special, any condition considered and location. Would ideally like a covert car, but as I said anything considered.  8)

Iím looking for a stablemate for my XJ40?
MikeÖ..

Now back in Omega ownership, managed to purchase a 2001 3.2 ex plod saloon. Thanks for all the comments and advice.
