Hi all,

Brother and I are discussing SS badging this evening, he tends to like the VE SS badge more so than I.
However, in my opinion it has lost its aggression and meaty appeal.

Last SS badging on the VY-VZ I thought was great, very aggressive and dominant in its class.

Brother says latest model is more curvaceous, no lightning strike effects & aggression. In his mind more so aesthetically pleasing.

Share thoughts and discussion.

Cheers

honestly have to agree with your brother. The design of the VE is unashamedly euro-based - so the acca-dacca-esque SS badging of VY/Z wouldn't have worked. I think it works with this car, in the same way the blocked SS badging/decals worked with older models. All in all, I think holden do a very good job of keeping the designs of their non-logo badging current. The sharp angular badging of the previous model would look very out of place on current model.

Just my $0.02

That's what I did, well the side ones anyway.
The only badges left on my Stato are the one in the grill and the chrome strip on the boot. I've been wondering if it's possible to buy another strip, fill the letters and get it rechromed.

Debadged cars look funny.

The only one I don't have on my car is the Lion on the boot lid.
