    Question Inspiration for the back of my car? Debadge? Spoilah?

    Looking for inspiration on what to do to the back of my car. Really think it is letting the whole car down at the moment. I like the fact its a saloon, its different to the other 100 Astra's that live within a mile of here. But the back looks fugly.

    Had this crazy thought I would go at it with the hair-drier tomorrow. So which badges should I take off? Lets see your pics... I was thinking take everything off but the Griffin...

    Also what else could I do to the back? I have a set of mud flaps to fit to the back, they should bring the back down a bit.

    What about spoilers? or what else do you have on there?

    Steve

    Ohh btw, here she is:

    Tinted rear lights would be first on my list.

    I wouldn't bother with a debadge, IMO it doesn't change the rear much and unless you point it out, Joe Bloggs in the street wouldn't even notice.

    If you want something that will stand out more - Spoiler.
    If you have no money to spend - Debadge.


    But it definately needs tinted rear lights, especially due to it's dark colour, nice to see you have them on order.

    Sounds good, not sure on the black griffin though. Can only remember seeing one once.

    Yeah I see what you mean, was planning on getting an Immy spoiler from the local scrappy but some bugger had broken it by the time I went back to get it. Mindless people about .

    Cant really afford 100 squid on spoiler and spraying, so was looking for a simple job. The badges are weathered, you can tell when you look at them, well I can anyway. They have gone sorta spotty.

    I'm trying to keep it subtle, If I had an 888 I could afford to get away with a wing. Right Scott?
