    You can tell they've imported it over though as it looks nothing like a new vauxhall!

    i was going to say that i'm sure they were based on the omega when in australia! Looks a good car for the money, but if I was buying brand new one, I would rather get a 2nd hand corvette or summit!

    I thought it looked a bit 'tokyo-tinsel' at the front - perhaps korean... maybe a hyundai coupe on steroids... looked liked a mashed-up jag at the back and a raised calibra from the side. ...Or maybe I was imagining all that! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Anyway, whatever it resembles, I don't like it too much.

    Regards,

    yeah.. he went through that stage for a while he had 5 rari's and a 355 a long way way way back..

    but he couldnt handle the fact that he was always ment for a german car.. and so went back to the good side..

    She'll kick 99% of people's butts. There's no embarassment at all for being beaten round there by Sabine.

    what time have you been round in?
