9 out of 10 Omegas ever made were silver.

Allegedly  :D

I have four Elite saloons, three are Star Silver, and one is Petrol Blue.
I know everyone jokes about 'rare' Star Silver, but is there a reason why there were so many made in Silver compared to other colours? My Petrol Blue 3.2 seems a 'rare' colour for an Elite - it appeared to be more popular in CD trim, although still not common.

Bonus being silver as it hides the dirt better lol, don't know why that is you'd think silver would really show dirt!

I have owned 3 Omega.

Two were ultra rare Star silver with the other being a fetching shade of Constabulary white. :)
