    Badging opinions

    Ok I only recently changed my badgless grill for an opel one. As in the pic. I am now wondering if a standard vauxhall one would look better. I would also need to change my rear badge.

    I think it would look better de-badged, but it is your car mate so you make the decision

    The opel logo is pretty cool, and I think it looks better than the griffin. At the end of the day it's your car, you could always try it with the standard VX logo and with a completely debadged front grill and see which you prefer?

    The opel badge for the back is looking pretty rad though!
    Watch who's comin' at you! Why? Who's got the power?

    Clean your tail pipes while you're deciding - they're filthy

    lol was going to say the same !

    As for the badges, my take on it is that badging as an opel makes it look like a cheap import (in the uk) so avoid it

    I agree with above, opel to me says import. I prefer the clean look.

    How about changing the badge in the grille for a Vauxhall Griffin?

    Would be a bit different I reckon.
