Why is this article entitled General Motors Omega instead of Opel Omega when for example the Pontiac Grand Am article is not entitled General Motors Grand Am? optikos

I understand your predicament. There are some people who think that this should be even though it violates the home-market naming scheme. We’ll see. -Daniel Blanchette 15:33, 8 April 2006 (UTC) In the UK it was the Vauxhall Omega

The Vauxhall/Opel/Holden crossovers cause all sorts of headaches and personally I think it would be better to have seperate articles for the different versions (As for example the Opel Omega A was sold as Vauxhall Carlton B) I also think many of the Opel articles over emphasise Opel as a German Brand because Vauxhall and Holden versions don’t get there own pages in most cases of shared names it implies something that isn’t always true, Especially since any of the cars aren’t designed by germans Wayne Cherry designed quite a few and he’s American. I personally think it should refer to GM’s European divisions Opel and Vauxhall as they both have design teams that work together.( (talk ) 01:15, 16 August 2008 (UTC))

wrong cat [ edit ]

It was in the Category: Lotus Cars. I changed it, but if it’s wrong#160;;-)

There is a picture of Omega B, but car on that picture is infact an omega C —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk ) 08:35, August 28, 2007 (UTC)

Well, there is no such thing as an Omega C. The picture displays an omega b facelift model, but still a B-Omega. (talk ) 01:22, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Body styles. [ edit ]

I have changed as many sedans and station wagons as I can find to saloon and estate respectively. I believe that seeing as the Omega/Carlton was a European car, the body styles should be referred to using the apporpriate colloquialisms. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dominar Rygel XVI (talk • contribs ) 09:57, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

Need to break down article into differrent markets [ edit ]

The GM company manufactured Omegas (and Carltons) produced in / for various countries differ quite significantly. the name is just reused. The article needs to broken down into differnt national / reigonal markets. (talk ) 01:58, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

Germaness [ edit ]

Like many Articles about Opels the first paragraph heavilly sugest the car is German, a vauxhall Omega redirects here I think it should be ‘made by General motors European divisions Opel and Vauxhall’ as noone would consider a Vauxhall Omega a german car.(Morcus (talk ) 01:25, 29 August 2008 (UTC))

The car was solely developed by Adam Opel AG in Germany, and even Vauxhalls were made in Ruesselsheim. PrinceGloria (talk ) 09:33, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

V8 [ edit ]

The intended engine for the stillborn V8 version was not a GM Premium V engine but a GM LS engine. Rdeiriar (talk ) 14:11, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

end of the omega [ edit ]

why do the runners of this site ALWAYS reverse any changes made to the end of the omega section, even when there is no deletion at all of the points made in it (rather, some being moved to another section). and can’t they see how poorly written this section is. (talk ) 22:11, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Holden – badge engineered? [ edit ]

Badge engineered refers to just swapping badges or other minor cosmetic features on a car and selling it as a different brand. Considering the Holden VN Commodore was based on a stretched VL floorpan so it was bigger than the Omega then fitted with different engine, interior/dash, front and rear end body style, I would probably use a different term than badge engineered. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk ) 05:02, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Vauxhall VXR8 [ edit ]

The Vauxhall VXR8 is a simillar sized car made after this one, albeit with a gap, would that not make it a successor? And wouldn’t the next Holden Comodore also be a sucessor? Granted these cars might not have been available in most of Europe but the Vauxhall Omega redirects here so perhaps it should be shoehorned in?(Morcus (talk ) 04:52, 15 March 2011 (UTC))

Opel Omega

End of the omega [ edit ]

I don’t know who created that section but it was not only heavily biased and containing weasel words, but also incorrect. This section: On 25 June 2003 the last Omega rolled out of the factory in Rüsselsheim – it was a silver 3.2L V6 Omega B FL number 797,011. appears to be unsourceable as it would have been heavily publicised, and yet after 3 hours i couldn’t get close to finding a source. I have left it in the article anyway since someone already tagged it with a citation needed. Thanks J e n o v a 20 14:25, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

Mv6 [ edit ]
