    First Mod =]

    So i have been searching for the tinted tail lights for a five door, and ive found them! So heres my first modification, not a deal to people with the newer astra where they come bog standard, but a joy for me =] i decided to debadge the astra and cdti, not too sure weather its as easy to do the Vauxhal badge?

    AFTER

    Lookin smooth, defo get the the massive vx badge off, IMO looks better without. just heat it up a touch, and run dental floss behind the badge, will come off pretty easy, then sticky stuff remover on the left over adhesive.
    After a month of waiting, I now own my Arden VXR....

    No, fully debadge the real, is the only way to go. Just like doing the other badges .... p*** easy.

    Love the lights. Did the same with mine, changed from the ones you had to the tinted ones.

    Out of interest, how much did you pay for them?
    Astra sold ... replaced with a Skoda ... soon to be replaced with another Vauxhall

    I don't, no!

    Not a bad price for them in all honesty, think I paid £45 for mine delivered, but the drivers one had a small crack in it.
