    Default Advice on custom badge location.

    I won these retro (Cavalier or Corsa era I think) style SRI badges and thought they would look good and a bit unique on the Vec. Those in the know as it were would know where they where they came from. A bit of a knod to my previous Vx's I've owned.
    Here are the thoughts so far. I have 2 of them.2012-07-28191220.jpg

    Just held on with blue Tac atm.

    Try the bottom right of your top grill (as you look at it). Similar to where the vxr badge goes I think.

    What about in place of the 2.2 direct badge?

    Remove the 2.2 direct (Remove the engine if possible? ) and slap it on below the vectra badge on the boot. Looks very clean.

    Have to agree as well, a badge from a bygone era, OK if you have a retro car to put them on but imo just doesn't go with the Vectra style, also no other red to tie it in anywhere, Just my opinion though
