    De-badging SRi Turbo XP

    I know it is all about how I feel about it but I need some opinions whether to de-badge my MK5. I am definately de-badging the two SRi side badges and the rear Astra and Vauxhall badges. This just leaves the Turbo on the right...

    I have never had a Turbo and its nice to see it on the back but I don't know what I should do, what does everything think would look best?

    Heres a pic:



    Thanks

    if you keep turbo keep astra to balance the strip, so leave both or remove both imo

    Not the answer I was looking for as I am still undecided. Thank you for your opinion Rich. Then if I have just the Turbo, your right it prob won't look balanced.

    not sure what it would look like, but what about removing all 3 (emblem, astra + turbo) then putting 'turbo' back on more centrally, perpaps even in the centre of the chrome strip??

    if you could get a more "square on" photo and without the rain i could photoshop something for you, could do it with the rain but it wouldnt look that good

    tbh ive never been a fan of chrome letters on a chrome strip but what i would do in ur case is take the astra off and the badge as well and leave the turbo
