    Hi all,

    I recently got the whole front of my VR replaced lol bumper, bonnet and left guard cos some twit ran into me in a New Nissan Maxima his car came off second best lol my car bent the front of his car across so his was a write off but anyways im going off track...
    yer so its all resprayed new but I'm not sure whether my car looks better with or without the badges i still have the back one on but i asked em to leave the front one off i gotta take it back for cut and polish in a month they said if i wanted they could either put the front one on or take the back one off for me.. my car already has the commodore and holden letters taken off the back by the previous owner lol so any advice would be great heres some pics of it with the badges and without

    (the back one without badge i did with photoshop)

    I'd leave them off...

    No more worries about neighbourhood kids trying to get those nice shiney new badges off with a screwdriver and marking your paint whenever you leave your car anywhere.

    leave the main badges.. take everything else off (including the spoiler lol)

    only differences between a vr and vs is badges, indicators, grill colours and hubcabs :p

    i'd say leave them on, i have hsv one's on mine, but have taken all the other badges off

    my car pretty much looks like a vs becuase i have changed all the indicators and and taillights to clear ones instead of the orange....

    mmm yer would look lil better now that i think about it lol but i cant afford to have the back of me car resprayed :S is it a myth that spoilers help with fuel economy something to do with the aerodynamics of the car i dunno lol not that fuel is a bother for me cos im on gas...

    spoilers provide downforce.. but on standard cars and the speeds most people travel they are only there for cosmetic looks, nothing else.

    i personally like the sleek no spoiler look (car also looks lower)

    yeah no spoiler is good i took mine off because the boot kept falling on my head and decided it looks way better.. as for badges its a matter of preference all i have is the front and back round holden badges and the "commodore" badge on the black strip each side though i have considered putting the 5.0 badges on too as morons keep lining me up in their v6's
