    I did my last two cars with the new badges. The first was my Astra H SRi back in December 2008.

    I think it suits the newer Astra's but I think it would look wrong on Astra G. I have considered this myself but think it won't look right.

    Depends.

    If you've done like i have & stuck the new griffin on the grill & plan to do the new griffin elsewhere, then the new griffin for sure.

    If however you're only going to do the new griffin in 1 spot & no other, then old one for me.

    Lol. Personal preference would be the new one. It looks more stylish.

    BUT it can look daft.

    In YOUR case, it wont

    Happy?

    Here's my Astra SRi XP2 from November 2008 with the new style griffins. I managed to get the badges before the Insignia hit the dealers! Thanks to Vauxhall putting the parts on EPC in September 2008!







    Then when I sold the Astra for another Signum, I did the same new griffin conversion to this one.






    I think it suits the these cars, but I really am not sure about the Astra G as it is of the old generation.

    I really don't like white cars at all!!

    However, there's always an exception & that car looks tidy as anything!!
