    Opc?

    The badges are peeling off my astra gsi but instead of getting new GSI16v badges I wondered about replacing them with OPC badges from LMF.
    I wondered if they would look stupid with my astra not relating to those badges.

    Whats your opinion?

    Can someone fill me in on the background of the OPC Astra please.

    An independent subsidiary of Adam Opel AG, Opel Performance Center GmbH (OPC) is responsible for the planning, development and co-ordination of all European motorsport activities.

    Moreover, OPC proves that the returns resulting from developing business areas such as merchandising, events plus the planning and development of exclusive limited production series of special vehicles can partly balance the expenses of motorsport. OPC’s philosophy is to tailor motorsport around the individual needs of fans, customers and sponsors.

    IMO it would look good, would really freshen up the cars look, I have 3 VXR ones to go on mine once the GSi transformation is complete also to show my support for the VXR racing team

    I am thinking of it, just didnt want people to look at it and think I was trying to make it something it wasnt.
    They will look different I agree, much better imo, plus they will match my opc rocker cover.

    As far as im aware all the gsi's were actually opcs and then were rebadged and had the grills changed etc for the uk vaux scene.

    Im very tempted to do the same, but dont forget to change your wheel logo's to opel ones and also the only thing that will give it away is opel opcs had opc written on the clock faces and had red needles instead of black.

    oh and they also had different wing mirrors.
