Very, very nice car. I wish you a lot of fun with it. I never understood why this didn't come as Opel in continental Europe.
Is there any similarities in driving dynamics with Omega?

Quick question:
I'm planning to replace drivers door. Donor car doesn't have Bose, rest is identical.
What are differences in wiring for front door speakers? If there is any..

Donor car purchased yesterday.

Someone put 235 55 17 at the rear, 2cm wheel spacers and it didn't rub  ::)
2.5 DTI manual. 400K on the clock and still doing donuts  ;D
I started striping parts to complete mine car, than I'll sell what can bee sold, rest is going to bee scraped.
Both sets of alloys are for sale, cause i don't like them.

That's nice of you, but shipping to Serbia would cost more than full Bose setup anyway  :D
Those flaps cause problems even when they work.
I remember once I tried to change CD while driving. I managed to brake the gear that drives that flap and almost drive myself off the road.

Yes. That's how it's been when i bought it. ( wasn't me that broke it I swear  ;D )
I'm chasing donor car anyway, those flaps are interchangeable between units I believe. Also I have CCR 2006 in parts sitting  somewhere..
Next problem are the seats. Passenger seat and rear bench have two small holes in leather. Drivers seat heater doesn't work.
Seats are fully electric, drivers with memory.
Cant' decide should I try to fix them or to replace them. Carpets have to go, but finding another seats with leather in good condition, and all the electrics working will bee tricky..

Thanks guys  ;)
Usually Cd changer refuse to cooperate, but as I can see this was the first time someone opened the unit. Al decals and warranty stickers were in place.

I played with NCDC today.
As it refused to play any kind of CD-s I decided to clean the lenses.
I used only cotton cloth and distilled water. I also used scuba diving tank as air compressor to blow some of that dust off.

Result is fantastic. Both sockets work fine, reading even white Verbatim burned CD-s

Did you try to recharge the battery?
How long did you hold the button?
I need to hold boot release button for 4 seconds on my current Omega (2002)

Thanks pal!
As you predicted, this is inside look through that rust hole

Other side look's a lot better:

After removing side skirts I found another rusty place

This is passenger side corner near jack mounting point.

I'll start with plastic removal tomorrow, then we'll see are there any surprises..
I dont find this tragic for 18 Years old car. I had bigger rust issues two years ago with 2004 X type Estate imported from Holland..
Does anyone know is it possible to fit pre-facelift boot lip spoiler to facelift?

I am considering this one for donor car. It's not FL but it is full spec 2.5 TD manual..

I stared with striping, to see what can i expect.

Only one sensor is working, but wires look ok. Adding those on the list.

As far as I can see, this is the biggest rust isue. Floor looks good, only other rusty place is panel below spare tyre.
Rear bumper rod needs replacement. Exhaust seems ok but I sense some vibration on idle. Cant figure is it him or maybe engine mount or something else.
I also removed HU to clean the lenses. Bose is working fine as faar as I can tell.

That's true.
I think the first job I would be doing is clearing out the scuttle drains
First ting i've done. There was some dirt but for my surprise nothing special.
Carpets needs replacement. Car had coolant leakage ( service history says cabin radiator was replaced two years ago).
Drivers seat heating isn't working, still thinking should I try to fresh these seats up or to replace them.
Two parking sensors dont work, and I cant find speaker nowhere. First I'll try to remove rear bumper to check the wires.
Front suspension is nearly completed.I bought new front arms, steering rod ends, and stabilizers. Still deciding on switching to MV6 sport suspension..
After cleaning it looks little better..
This is direction I am going for:
