Cadillac Catera and Cimarron Forum Discussion, 00 Sport Rebadged to Vauxhall Omega for sale in Past Cadillac Vehicle Discussion; I decided to test the waters while my car is under warranty and listed it on ebay. It's a 2000 ...
hehe... true that! I considered making it an Opel but I've seen that before and I think the Vauxhall griffin is much cooler than the Opel lightning bolt. Another thing was getting parts in England was hard enough, I can't imagine trying to do it in Germany with the language barrier.
Thanks for looking! I'll probably end up not selling it (reserve is too high) but I don't mind keeping it. Just need to start a savings fund for when my warranty runs out.
Being different is good. Not many people here even know what Vauxhall is and it sounds German and looks expensive so that impresses people
If you ever make it to a breaker yard, I need a the door sills with teh Griffin emblem on them. That's the only Cadillac thing that remains on my car!
Apart from it not being German at all
I'll see what i can do, there are few of them ever in breakers yards, they get rare, Ill be in touch if i find them though.
Ignorant Americans like me think it sounds German...lol. It's sad because I took two years of German in high school so I should know better!
The steering wheel badge is easy or tricky. It's easy if your Cat is a 97-99 because the badge is made of a thin metal and has 2 prongs... just carefully pry it out and you're set. If your "Omega" is an 00 or 01 like mine, the badge is actually integrated into the airbag unit and does not detach. Someone in England had a blown airbag and cut out the badge for me and mailed it. I then had my dad clip off all of the excess plastic underneath and sand it down to where it was flat. I then used double sided poster tape (3M, very strong!) and put it on top of my Caddy badge. You can't tell the difference, it looks like it is part of the airbag. Now if the airbag deploys, I hope it doesn't fly up and launch into my head or eye but I guess that's the risk I have to take. It's on there pretty good and is difficult to pry off.
