    Badges

    Noticed from pics on here that alot of cars wear the opel badges. Are they original opel origin or are the badges being used to replace the Griffin, if so why.
    Thinking of removing the Griffin off the back of mine as it seems quite big.
    Have removed the badges off the chrome strip.

    Don't forget, if you remove the Griffen you will have 2 locating holes left in your bootlid.

    I changed the badges on mine for a cleaner look as already mentioned......and to be different.

    They are available over the counter at any vauxhall dealer/parts desk and can sometimes be found on ebay.

    If its got pistons or tits, its gonna be expensive!!

    If you get a genuine boot badge it will have the locaters in the back that go in the 2 holes

    It has two locating holes/pegs as well as the double sided tape, all other badges are just secured with the tape.

    If you have a MK5 astra there are not locating lugs under the badge, its just stuck on.
