    Plain Number Plates, standard type, about 15-20 quid, plain white front plate would go well with paint.

    that is my main thought but i cant think of what to do with it (sure i've started a few threads on that topic) would have been done but i have to change the lower part as well to remove the chrome added to the fact no one will tell me if pre 2008 grilles will fit, so i need to get one to test,

    tempted with top and bottom steinmetz ones but not sure if it'll look good and £300 for them is alot to risk

    that is what i would like to do, but want rid of the chrome on it aswell so would need to get a pre 2008 top and bottom grille and paint the V,

    will call vauxhall tomorrow for the price
