: Catera Aftermarket/Performance Options

02-05-05, 12:12 AM
Since there have been so many requests, here are some possible solutions for performance additions and exterior modifications. These are the best we've found so far:


Irmscher- I dont know if they will send to the US. Call them or email them.

Part specification is the same as above. On the side bar, go to Accessories Programme > Omega > Till 1999 (97-99) or From 1999 (2000 -) > Saloon only. Catera is 3.0 V6, Lucas Brakes. Dont select estate/caravan.



Again, not sure on their status on shipping to US.

Go to Tuning > V6 Tuning. Most things should theoretically work except for all of the throttle bodies, and the items for the 2.5 V6 unless it also says 3.0 V6 is compatable as well. For example, the power chamber resonator works on both engines.

http://www.drivewire.com/ - Sparkplug wires (97-98), Intrax lowering springs (must disable rear leveling system!) and camber kits.

Where can I find headlamp assemblies for 2000 Catera? My left headlamp insides have come loose---they still work, but cannot align correctly...Luis

So, if i get one of those exhaust systems it will all fit and work on my 97 3.0 catera

If I could only get this kind of dedication from the guys at work, I'd be rich. You've given me some great info over the past year since I bought the Catera Jeffery, Thanks.

I am just looking for a cool billet or mesh grill for a 97 catera. E&J classics use to make them, but they are discontinued. I like the all black ones that are available in the UK, but if someone knows where I can get one in the USA, it would be appreciated.

09-01-05, 10:08 PM
heres the cheapest one I've found its $219

our stock grills go for alot on ebay. I believe I saw a used one go for $250 before.

how bout some rims that will fit a 2000 catera sport? i've been kind of hesitant about gettin rims because i wanna go bigger. like 18" or 19" even.:yup: i have the 17" sport alloys now but i'm just not sure if 18's or 19's would fit on my car. if the bolt pattern is 5x110 but it's 18 x 8 will that work? because i know the wheel now is 17 x 7.5..please help :)

Hi, i am from the UK, i have the omega which is the same car as the cetera, the correct size for the wheels are 265/35/18 rear and 235/45/18 front the rears are 9" and fronts are 8", if you get the stienmetz i think the rears are10", just make sure you get the correct camber or you will chew your rubber to bits:banghead:
