    Lightbulb badges-vauxhall, opel or holden?

    Now i was thinking about changing the griffin for the lion....

    not sure though so opinions would be great

    must admit though, opel really did pick the short straw when they got the sideways harry potter scar.

    I can see why people would want to change badges etc, especially if you are going for say a Euro look, then Opel Blitz badges make sense.

    If you can bagdes on a car, IMO you have to do the whole lot on the outside. So, boot badge, centre cap badges, and front grill badges. All need to match.

    Don't see the point in changing 1 and leaving others standard.

    To answer your question, Vauxhall all the way, if you car has a Euro theme, then fair enough I would go for Opel.

    At the end of the day Dan, its all down to personal preference. If you want to do it, then do it.

    Havent got one at the moment, had a 1.2 16v corsa b which i loved with all my heart, i then proceded to write it off.

    now looking for a major up grade, im after a 1.6 16v or a 1.8 16v so really im trying to get as much info as i can, aswell as looking everywhere for a car at a decent price witth decent mileage!

    absolutely love the mk4, my dad had one when i was younger, an sri in red and when he sold it i was very disapointed!

    my mates just got himself a 1.6 16v so anything smaller than that is a no no, cant have him bettering me now!
