    Default Just picked the Astra up from the bodyshop.

    Just got back from my Vauxhall dealer with a new front skirt and the whole bumper painted after my VXR skirt got mullered. So took the opportunity to fit the proper XP2 version. Also added a few new touches, being the new style griffins! These are proper Vauxhall chrome badges and not duplicates. The new style 'CDTi' badge from the Insignia, which does'nt have engine size and also a black Ti rather than red.

    I also removed the Corsa VXR indicator surrounds, fitted the standard side repeaters back in, then fitted the new Insignia 'smaller' SRi badges. This is the way Vauxhall are fitting 'model' badges now on the new cars, and as I assume the new Astra will be done in the same way I thought I would do mine in this theme.

    But the XP2 is 100% finished will all the correct parts.

    Opinions welcome.(Y)

    There had to be a little modifying but on the whole a pretty easy job. The tailgate badge is on back order, but as soon as it arrives it will be fitted.

    Simply stunning Matt.

    Subtle but at the same time sexy!

    And was not impressed one bit with the new Griffin badge when Vauxhall revamped it but seeing it on your car i have now changed my mind!


    Snowman, you got your ears on?
