I've just found this part of the forum, but have been going to Omega for about a year and a half. They are very solid craftsman and very reasonably priced. They are also biodiesel friendly.

They have a lot of parts cars, so can often find a missing trim or other piece while you're there.

I have visited these guys. Even though they are quite a ways away from my house, I went there because they didn't seem to be on a highball about the cars. I think they know the cars well enough but they were exceedingly slow and undependable in working on mine.

I left it for a month while I was out of town, saying I would come by and pick it up on the way from the airport, giving them the specific date of my return. No problem they say.

I take a taxi there from the airport at 2pm as promised and they have the car completely torn apart as though they had just started working on it that day (which I believe to be true, given they apparently didn't have time to check the quality of their work when finished). They say come back later in the day to get it. I had to call a friend to come and get me.

I returned at 5:30 when they are just starting to put door panels back on and I wait. An hour later I pay my hefty bill and drive off. The trans still didn't shift right (but now they are closed for the day) and the first time I drove it at night none of the dash lights worked, which they did before taking it in.

Now I am trying to get them to fix that problem and the problem they didn't fix with the shifting, but they don't have time to do that because they are too busy and have told me several times to bring it in next week. I don't want to leave the car again for more than a day because I don't think they will actually work on it until the last possible moment.

Your results might be different but I am not impressed. Expensive and undependable. The expensive part I expected, but getting cars fixed on schedule doesn't seem to be a big priority for them.

And if you leave your car with them for any length of time it will be completely filthy dirty from sitting in their gravel lot near a freeway overpass.
I'll try someone else next time for repairs, but I would recommend them for used parts.

I found this site while researching Omega, they were just recommended to me to call about the driver side headlight door I am looking for for my 1977 W116 280SE.

I called and the person I got on the phone was very friendly until I said what I was looking for, then the mood changed fast. He asked if I needed the entire light assembly, I said I just need the plastic part then he got loud telling me they won't sell them separately.

The call was dropped (or I was hung up on, not sure) before I was able to say anything else but I will never try to deal with them again.

I have had nothing but positive experiences (10+) with these guys, going over and above to help me out over the years. They even order parts that I need same day, for much less than the dealer. They are also constantly slammed, very busy getting these old cars back on the road, without the luxuries of the dealership's deep-pocketed clientele. They also don't turn away the biodiesel or motor swap crowds.
