hi,

has anyone retro-fitted the new style griffin badge to their car?
I am looking to de-badge mine and add the new style griffin badge.
I want to do my alloy centre caps too, so same question. Any photos would be great! :)

My old car...









Grille took some work, sanding and priming and painting of the Opel blade.

Rear was easy, J rear griffin and some double sided tape. Think the facelift Corsa one is self adhesive, so even easier now.

Did the centre caps too - bought some Insignia ones and pushed the griffins off and then just removed the ones off mine and glued the new ones in place. The only thing I didn't get round to doing was the air bag.

She came up to 3 years old and at the time I couldn't park at work so in effect I was paying finance to have her sitting outside my house all day, plus there was a worrying M32 failure type noise, plus MOT and service etc etc so I got rid in favour of a Coupe Turbo cause I've always wanted one, and now I'm saving the finance I was paying :D

But she was gorgeous while I had her, one of the last ever Moonlands before they deleted it, PEPS, AFL, Bluetooth and the XP.

If that's off a J or Insignia then I'm pretty sure the PCD is different. But the griffin on yours just pulls off, it's just double sided foamy tape stuff. I bought 4 Insignia centre caps and nicked the griffins and glued them on to mine.
