I was searching through Google and found the web site of the owner...

I have been trying to find more pictures of it for a while now... looks like it started as a base Catera, and he might be from Poland which explains how he got all the parts for it...

He is one lucky man... I even like the plate on it... "CANT BY 1"

the muffler is still in the stock location it just one pipe runs from the drivers side to the passengers side directly behind the bumper cover. I might have a pic in one of my opel mags will post it if i find it.


I personally like the lines of the catera and think that simply an addition of a chin spoiler is all the car needs to look good

I agree. I bought one plus Steinmetz side skirts which are deeper than the stock ones with a subtle contour towards the rear. Both items update the styling without going the "Fast & Furious" route.

Yes, I'm in Chicago. Detailed photos/info will be on eBay soon, unless someone in interested in buying early...

As far as the clip or other parts they aren't easy to find, irmscher.de is where I bought it but they discontinued production :(

That thing is sweet... I think they are a dealer of european exotic or rare cars... I wonder how this one is an identical copy of the previous silver one that sold... go figure?

I kinda wish the guy would let us know where he is getting all these body parts for the car...

The parts are all sourced from Germany, can you not buy them direct?

irmscher,com - This is the official Irmscher site, but there is also plenty of other unofficial suppliers - carstyle-bits,com

You can always try to grab a bargain by checking out German Ebay. ebay,de There is loads of Irmscher and Steinmetz stuff for the Omega!

The part I most want is the rear deck spoiler with that integrated 3rd brake light. I don't like the "wing" spoiler on my current 2001 sport. Looks tacky, but that deck spoiler is a little more understated.

That spoiler is an irmscher item

You should be able to buy it direct from them.

I have just checked Ebay here in the UK and there are several used ones. They seem to go for about 30 - 50.

Out of interest, that spoiler was standard on Omega Elite and MV6 here in The UK.

Can you send me a link to those auctions? I did a search; however, I can't find the one that is on this Catera. I am specifically looking for the rear deck spoiler that integrated 3rd break light

Hello Mate

I have just checked the UK Ebay and there isn't any there at the moment.

Just keep watching and type in 'Omega' 'Spoiler'

1 thing to note is, generally there is quite a few rear spoilers for sale on Ebay, but most do not have the intergrated 3rd brake light. The spoiler was standard on Elite and MV6 and so there is quite a few about as they get stripped for parts.

You maybe lucky and find one with the 3rd brake light, but this must have been purchased direct from Irmscher.

I have also checked on the official Irmscher website and this part is now discontinued. So the only chance is a second hand one.

My colleague bought a non brake light spoiler for his Omega a few weeks ago on Ebay, it only cost about 30. - With the current exchange rate $- it is a great time to buy!!!

Cheers

Here's a good site- http://www.tuningzone.pl/- that i'm pretty sure has the spoiler you're talking about. Although shipping may be an issue, there pretty cheap. Regardless this is the best site for Omega/Catera Body kits and bumpers.
