    Default Strange

    Why do people have an obsession with taking the Griffin off of their Vauxhalls?

    They buy a Vauxhall, presumably because they like the make, and continually try to improve it with different upgrades/modifications and then they remove the very thing that tells people that it is a Vauxhall.

    Strange.

    Vehicle : BMW 525i

    Trim : SE Touring

    Engine : 3.0

    Year : 2007

    All the original badging remains in place on mine.

    Take things off and there's just something missing. It's not right to me.

    I think the general consensus amongst those of us that debadge our cars is that manufacturers have a habit of putting too many badges on their cars in the first place. All we do is try to correct the balance. I've always debadged my cars, right from my very first one. It just looks cleaner and easier on the eye to me.

    Maybe they dont like the make and dont want the world to know its a Vauxhall, or maybe they just like the look of a debadged motor.
    its their car , so they can please themselves.......

    I intend to spray the grille on the front of mine black and then get rid of the design badges down the sides, and the 2.2 direct badge on the back & leave the vectra badge

    I think it also makes people a little curious about/interested in the car too, as many debadged Signum owners have have found.
