Chevrolet Omega CD '99
Hello!
Im new here and im from brazil. Here we have the omega, an imported gm badge version of the holden commodore. Its not the omega version you have there though, its named omega because we had another car with the same name here and then came the commodore as its successor, in 1999.

Mine (1999) came basically with automatic a/c, cd player, an ecotec 3.8 v6 engine, electric seats, 4 speed automatic gearbox and some more stuff.

My fathers version (2005) came with all that plus leather seats, an alloytec 3.6 v6 with 260hp, 5 speed automatic gearbox with active select and traction control and other stuff.

The first omega we had here (in Brazil):




My omega (first model that came from australia):









(yes, the drivers position is in the left not in the right as you have)






(Imported exclusively for GM of Brazil Limited.
By Coimex International S/A)


(owners manual)






My dads '05:
















Both are all stock

Just for curiosity:
Here in Brazil the price of a new omega (we only have 1 model here) is 110000 reais, about 74000 australian dollars.

Thats what we call the VT Calais (your car) and VZ Calais (your dads car) here. They are both good looking cars with some good options too.

Its equivalent to a VT series 1 Calais with a Berlina interior (single zone climate control, no audio control buttons on steering wheel)

His dad's is equivalent to a VY series 2 Berlina.

I only bring it up coz it was just interesting to see the vt with the berlina int... anywayyy...

Very nice cars buddy :D :thumbsup: good to see our local cars all over the world :D How do you like yours? Its pretty much what I drive here... just sitting on the other side :p
