    Default Re-badge - what do you think?

    I see some of you de-badge your cars. I love the look of my vectra with OPC II package and has a long time thinking what to do to make my car special. I found at ebay a lot of orginal opel badge cheap, so I order a OPC-line badge same as the badge at my front door. Then I removed the "vectra" and "1.9" badge at the rear and repleace it with a new "OPC-line"badge and also leave the CDTI badge. It become like this. What do you people think?

    Isnít the OPC badge the equivalent of a VXR in the UK? If so then my opinion is, if it isnít an OPC then take it off Ė why badge a car to say itís something it quite clearly isnít!

    LOVE the clean lines of the Opel badge compared to Holden/VX

    But as above. I've always been in the mind that if you badge a car, badge it correct. Little bit contradictory having a CDTi badge on it, AND an OPC. (Still wish they made that bi-turbo OPC, CDTi for the pre-face)

    Personal choice though

    OPC its the same as VXR i think.

    But OPC-line (as my badge) its the same as XP. The badge I have mounted at the back door its the same orginal factory-fitted badge at my front door. So its nothing fake here. Just chance the badge at the rear, to the same as factory fitted at my front door.

    Picture under shows standard badge at my car

    I agree. The cdti 212 biturbo would have been a nice car, but very expencive here in Norway.

    A new insignia OPC with the 2.8 turbo cost over 100.000,- GBP here
