Ive a quick question and some may think its stupid.
Im struggling to find a VE Calais Phantom and It was suggested to me to perhaps to buy a VE Omega phantom which are about $7k less and spend the $7k decking it out with all the necessary modificatons.
such as:-
Interior seats - Get leather Senator seats for example.
New Grilles,
new tail lights (im aware omegas cant fit calais lights)
New mags
Exhaust
Springs
Dash/console

Is this a silly proposition? Can I mod the Omega to resemble anything classy??

IMHO Its not worth it, just keep looking for a Calais.
Its going to be a pain in the ass to change it all and it still won't be the same as the real deal.

Oh and by the way, if you want the Calais tail lights you need the calais rear bumper as the lights in the Calais and Berlina have slightly different dimensions to those of a omega, sv6 or ssv.

Yeah ok,
Cheers for the advice,
A mate was saying if i gutted the interior and went to a wrecker to get leather seats/accessories from a Senator it would look wild. But im thinking its going to be too hard in the long run.
Yeah i'll keep looking for the Calais, as long as my VS holds out lol.

I didnt even think of that,
i was aware that unless the Omega is a Sidi it doesnt have the dual exhaust system.
