    Did u like the berlina? Personally, I rekon it looks heaps nice. And i think all the Omega needs it asss end dropped and some nice rims and it would be one of the best looking cars goin around. Did u like the handbrake? it feels wierd hey but looks cool when its down.

    yeah handbreak is funny
    ive seen this in a few cars now
    the ss was just wow
    youll know when one is coming towards you easy they are good looking
    all 3 with nice rims would look good
    i also got some info from holdens internal ppl saying no other rims fit them yet only holden ones
    also the days of 10k services are gone
    if you buy today next service is 100,000 k's and first trans service is 150,000k's
    all ve's will have esp
    all ves have battery in boot (i like that idea) and ya jump start it from 2 metal pionts under bonnet
    rim sizes are 16-20 inch (drool)
    20 onboard computer modules
    14 rewritable comp modules
    motor sits back further then vy/vz (more crash room hehe)
    boot is deeper on inside but thinner on rear end but still loks good
    i want one now
    heheh

    According to the brochure (yay www.holden.com.au ) .....

    "The first inspection is due at 3,000km or 3 months (whichever occurs first). The first service is due at 15,000km or 12 months (whichever occurs first). Thereafter, at every 15,000km or 12 months since the last service (whichever occurs first)."

    Yeah Rombles got it. I have brochures for Omega/SV6/SS/SSV and Berlina/Calais/Calais V and in both the brochures the initial oil change and nut & bolt check is at 3,000km and then service intervals are every 15,000km or 12 months, whichever comes first.

    I dare you to run ANY car for 100,000km WITHOUT a service. MORON!!! :D
