    Default Vauxhall or Opel...

    Been thinking this morning(Dangerous thing, as it tends to cost me money)

    Shall i rebadge my car as an Opel, or leave it as a Vauxhall. Basically all the body badges have gone, No Griffin's or SRi Badges in sight, Just the Wheel Centres, Caliper Graphic's and Probabaly Number Plate Holders, and also lookin ginto getting some rubber mudflaps with Opel badges too(They do them with Griffin's tho')

    So, Vauxhall or Opel???

    Opel is different for UK roads but it also makes everyone think that the car's an import. Definitely remove any Opel logos if you were ever going to present the car at a dealers for a part exchange valuation!

    How about Holden badges if you want something really different?

    If you're going for the euro look then i'd definitely go for the Opel badges, although like Matt says, go for Holden badges if you want something different. I saw a Holden badged vec yesterday and apart from GG's its the only other on i've seen.

    I'm in the Process of "Opelizing" mine at the moment Ben, Already changed the Centre Caps, Put "OPC Line" badges on the sides where the Sri badges were, and I've got an Opel Blitz on order for the boot lid, Also got OPC Kick plates on order from Ebay in Spain the only bit that will be tricky will be the Airbag Badge,
    I'm keeping all the originals to put back on when i get rid of the car.

    In short Ben "Go for it" theres not many opels out there, But like people have said why not Holden ise!!! it??
