    Default My final badge set up!!!

    Talk about going full circle!!!

    I decided that I did not want to use a genuine VXR badge as it is not one, then I thought the VXRD badge idea was good but not factory like as they don't do a VXR diesel.

    But....... It has got alot of VXR styling and tuning parts fitted.

    So here it is....... original badging but with a VXR sticker in the proper VXR style and in a subtle chrome effect, fitted before the 1.9 CDTi badge, in my opinion, this does not detract from what the car actually is, but it should give the idea it has received a bit of VXR treatment.

    What do you think?

    I think it looks good! Did I immagine it or was your chrome strip black the last time you posted a pic???? (with an alloy effect Griffin???) Am I losing my mind?

    No it was black, but after seeing it parked next to Spoons, I though too much black at the back made mine look a bit cheap!!

    An expensive experiment you could call it!!!

    Have you heard of Photoshop? I actually liked the Black ... to be honest IMHO I think the VXR badge you have there would look nicer on a black background from that pic ... perhaps above the 1.9 badging.

    Just my opinion ... it does look good as it is

    Matt, public opinion will be never ending on your car badge theme... You've given us all too many options..... Just stick with the one YOU are happy with....

    Doesnt seem right though, that you've spend soooo much money on badges, paint, chrome strips, lettering... just to end up back to the same setup as when first started but sticking a 'freebee' VXR badge on it.. just doesnt seem right

    Your dead right!!! but we all learn the hard way. Fortunatly I have not paidfor the new chrome strip myself so not so bad.

    The VXR Sticker will be replaced with another, but in silver with the 'Style line' wording underneath, just loke the OPC version.

    So it should look a little more complete. See I am at it again, this post was titled 'Final Badge set up' and I and thinking about changes again!!!

    Should get the new decals done very soon.

    Hi Matt, I prefered the chrome strip in black and also the vxr badge stood out more. But if you are happy with it then fairplay
