    Vauxhall OPC !?

    Hi there in the uk !

    first off all let me say sorry for my bad english but i couldn't resist to register at this board to ask you a few questions.

    I drive a Astra 1.6 16V Caravan - and i changed every Opel Logo into a Vaux sign .

    here is a picture of my baby...



    My question: is there a vauxhall edition of a Astra OPC ? Does this edition had a diverent cooling grill (is grill the right word?) than the normal vauxhall astra ? The Opel OPC has a diverent one.

    I still have many questions - and if i find the time i will bother you with the one or the other...

    lovely looking car!!

    As for the Grill the OPC version in the UK is called the GSi and the grill is a standard one the same as your grill is now. Its something that a lot of people are un happy with as the OPC grill is a lot nicer!!!

    thank you for your warm welcome !

    oh - thats a pity with the OPC grill

    I think about changing my complete front into the OPC one but the design of the grid in the OPC front does not fit to the Vaux grill.

    this is the astra GSi our version of the OPC



    How about buying an OPC grill and finding a vauxhall badge to replace the Opel blitz??

    @cal

    oh - now i understand


    @MatG

    i don't wan't to put any signs on my car the signalise that this could be a OPC - it is just a 1.6 16 with 100 PS (till now ).

    Ok there are many OPC parts on it - rear bumper, rear lights and in a few weeks the OPC rear wing for the caravan but these are only there because i find them very "descreet" and not so "overloaded" - don't get me wrong, there are many great Astras with spoilers and wings but this one should be more gentle

    In the end i don't think that a Vaux Logo would fit to the OPC Grill of Opel ?!
