Timely prompt from the DVLA reminds me that its decision time on my Omega. Part of me would like to hang on to it as a hobby/workhorse but as I can't weld and no longer have the enthusiasm or the need for a second car she sadly has to go.

Offering it to the helpful Omega community first but interested parties will need to be quick as tax expires at the end of the month and offroad parking is not an option.

Must be worth £275 for parts and Cats alone.

RK53 ZWT c 137,000 miles. Cloth interior.
Barely used since last MOT on 9/11/2022
Advisories relate to:-
Sills ('Don't bring it back next year without replacing them'),
Front wishbones corroded (ATP items fitted by me 2015, polybushed 2017)
Rear suspension ball joint dust cover deteriorated.

Faults (that I can remember - she's not been used in months)
Typical corrosion to rear wheel arches and tailgate.
Windscreen cracked lower corner drivers side
Passenger door lock a bit sluggish
Head unit replaced by previous owner for non Bose unit, CD and cassette no longer work
Speedo/Rev counter sometimes do not play. Spare dashboard components supplied by Bigriffin but never fitted included in sale)
Handbrake cable snapped (New replacement in boot)
A/C has lost its gas.

Work done
Oil and filter every 6-8 months until Feb '21
Crank sensor Feb 21
Brake pipes replaced, Front discs and pads, Cat back exhaust Sept '20
Cam belt, crank seal, atf and filter by Serek, March 2017 @114,400 miles
Cam cover seals Sept '16

In the boot you will find
Brand new HBV carried as a travelling spare
Towbar that I bought from Bigriffin but never got around to fitting
Aforementioned dashboard components
2 spare wheels (steel) and tyres

Please let me know asap if there is interest. The battery has been removed and stored with occaisional charge since early June. I'll try and fit it Saturday and give it a run.

Steve

It started fine on saturday and I've done a couple of short runs to Wickes etc.
Some more things to note:-
The heater is full blast max heat.
There is rust in the roof gutters.
Rust spots on roof between windscreen and sunroof.

£275 is what I was hoping for, but I'll try and run it past a scrappies Wednesday to see what they offer and take it from there.

Given the mileage you've done since the last test, it might be worth throwing it in for another test :-\

Shame to scrap it, but Im sure a scrapyard will give you more than £275 for it.

Plundering for parts is why I posted it here. Iíve benefited in the past by other members supplying parts to me from breakers (not to mention the wealth of hints, advice and practical help) helping keep this and its predecessor on the road.

James Iíll pm my number so we can arrange for collection, but I think we can safely say the vehicle is now sold :'(

Iíd have loved it mate, but logistically the depths of wales and the ancillary costs around fuel / transport would have meant it financially uneconomical. Iím very sorry I thought I replied.

Steve I have transferred you funds Ö..
