    Opel badge or griffin?

    Hi everyone

    I am thinking of removing the "vauxhall" and "Astra" badge from the boot and replacing the griffin badge (I think thats what you call it) with an opel badge, but before i do i would appreciate if anyone could give an opinion.

    Gotta start somewhere and i suppose this is just the beginning....

    Thanks

    Not keen on the VX badge. Looks a bit messy. The Opel badge is more modern looking and far neater.

    I badged my old Astra up as an Opel.





    There is actually a really nice recess for the Opel badge on the MK3 grilles, so when painted, the gille has the same contour.

    I did manage to source an Opel V6 cover as well...wasn't fitted at the time.
