But what does switching the badges achieve?
Performance increase - Nil
Handling Improvements - Nil
Resale value - likely negative effect
Risk of paint and finish damage - Modorate
Impresses the passers-by - Unlikely
Impresses car enthusiast - No Chance
Wastes $200 you could have spent on something useful for the car - Yes
Changing badges doesn't change the car, A GT badge on an old XY 302 doesn't make it a GT, Tickford badges on stocker EL's doesn't make them Tickfords, So what difference is an Opel badge going to make.
Your car may be Opel in manufacture and the locally supplied ones are most likely barely changed if at all from the OS spec, but seriously is Opel any more exclusive than a lion with a circle round it, what difference will a couple of badges make?
Take the misses out to dinner with the money you save on badges.
