    How quick are those omegas?

    was behind one tonight. Was going slow as hell. Cars coming the other way & figured i'd overtake when i get a clear run.

    Soon as there's no more oncoming traffic the guy boots it & hell fire i had no chance. I didn't try & keep up because i could clearly see i'd be wasting my time. I didn't even make it look like i was thinking of overtaking. He just booted it soon as there was a chance.

    Umm, plate was GJ52VSE or VSA i can't remember now. Should've noted it down.

    Had 2 exhaust pipes at the rear on either side if that helps....? lol.

    Still wouldn't have one as i don't like the look. but it didn't hang about.

    Its a 3.2 V6

    GJ52 VSA so in the region of 214bhp

    ive always fancied an Omega myself ever since they first came out - the facelifted ones with the improved engines look ever so tasty - even more so dropped with big rims.... this beast sounds like one top notch motor - cheap too

    Ahhhh. I see. I'm no fan of the look of the Omega, but i must admit it did look different to 99% of the Omega's i've seen on the road around her. Different - better.

    The bog standard i really don't like the look of.

    Not massively quick due to the size of the car. But they are RWD, sound great, and very comfy
