    The best badge....

    I have pulled off the "vauxhall" "astra" and "1.8 16v" from the rear of my car, but have left the griffin badge in situe as I know it has got the locating holes underneath. However I don't like the look of the rear with the griffin badge, and I dont want to fork out to have two tiny holes filled and painted lol.
    So my question to you is what alternative badges are there for the plain old girffin?
    Its a mk4 hatch.
    I thought about the Irmscher "i" but that would be the only irmscher thing on the car so might look odd

    The new griffin badge is nice, with vauxhall written on the outer circle.

    Personally I've just ordered an Opel badge for my Coupe and I'm going to remove the other badges.

    I debated nothing more than a custom sticker from e.g. Heko - a black circle the same size as the Griffin circle, with a dark-grey Griffin on.

    Or a griffin in the same colour as the rest of the car.. That's what I'm thinking to do with mine later.

    Or maybe a custom made dome gel circle badge big enough to cover the holes up.

    It could be one of those Gel stickers yea, but a normal vinyl one wouldnt work as it would sink where the holes are!
