    When we had them at work as ARVs they were indestructible. Great car that I really miss.

    I had a 2.0 litre Omega (bit different to the MV6) and I loved it. The only problems I seemed to have were typical Vx ones - snapped springs, dodgy drop links and failed lower suspension joints.

    Comfy capable cruisers and the 2 litre engine was pretty tough.

    Nice car - though Omega's can be expensive on bits. I thought about buying one about 3 years back. Retro dash - rolling wheels for the odometer (well into the era of digital mileage). The sports seats are good, plus the whole handling package is set up well. Back seats can be a bit tight, but overall it's a good drive. The smoked alloys are nice, and the facelifted Omega had a meaner look that suited the lowered ride.

    Fuel economy is nothing to shout about though, and they did occasionally suffer a bit of corrosion (back arches, for example).

    Found a few on Autotrader...
    This is a typical police-spec one.
    I always liked them like this though...

    If you want ex-police, look for '1-owner', 'white', 'rare manual version' and mileages in the 100k+ range...
    If you want a full retail spec version, seek out an auto one - the lower the miles the better...
