Since you have an Omega I assume you're on the other side of the Atlantic. You might have better luck finding answers at an Omega Site like omegaowners.com. There is confusion here regarding where the Catera fits in the Omega family tree. Is it an MV6 or an Elite? The MV6 is the sport model with stiffer suspension components. The police used a version of the MV6. The Elite is the luxury model with heated leather seats, premium stereo, and other deluxe appointments. I believe the Catera is a cross between the two.
Below is a link to an OOF thread regarding the MV6 & Elite.
Here's another good Omega group:
PS: It's probably a 3.0 liter. The 3.2 L didn't debut until 2001 in Europe. The Catera retained the 3.0L for its entire production run.
now you've confused me mine is like the combination of both
it's an mv6 with leather interior heated seats power windows and door locks with a screen instead of the two gauges u guys have in the catera and a complete bose sound system with a blaupunkt cd changer
i checked the car and it doesn't say elite anywhere just mv6 on the fender right besides the turn lamp. i'll go and get it started today it's in the garage for a new paint job. might get some pics too
this is my opel getting prepared for a fresh coathttp://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/attachments/cadillac-catera-cimarron-forum/37702d1195743502-1999-opel-omega-mv6-22-11-07_0928.jpg
my paint is done just needs a clear coat scrub and it's good to go
