    Wife and debadging!

    No i'm not going to debadge the wife!

    What I was planning to do was debadge the astra and then place a chrome badge (of a bull) on the back end....

    Now she is happy with the bull (as it's our surname....poncey or what but I just want me astra to be different!) but she will not let me take the badges off 'cos she wants everyone to know we have a 1.8....

    So:

    all badges off and stick on the bull badge,

    all badges off and no bull badge,

    all badges off except the 1.8 and stick on the bull badge

    or lastly

    all badges off except the 1.8 and no bull badge.

    What a kerfuffle!

    any advice will be gratefull received by myself....and probably ignored by the wife!

    I'd just take the lot off, and stick the bull over the hole where the Vaux badge was.

    I was in two minds when I removed my 1.8 badge, being only 18 at the time I was really chuffed at having a 1.8!

    You just need the smooth clean look!!!
    Sold my Astra to buy a house.

    Now drive a 205 GTI 2.0 16v

    Cheap and Chearfull!

    just do it and don't tell the wife, she'll not notice for months the only car I've left badges on is my supra as its a 3.0 turbo thats worth leaving them on

    take them all off,
    i wasnt sure on taking the 1.8 16v off my 1st astra but i was 18 as above and liked having it known what it was, now i have a turbo and will take the badge of that as and when i can,

    the clean look is much better,

    All off - Bull on.

    Anybody who wants to know what engine it has will be able to tell from the way it sounds/drives.

    engine size badges should be on cars full stop, Its for reps who want to make up for lost inches with bigger engines
