        You need Vauxhall part number 91146475, £15.20 a pair retail. But thats with the older driffin, you will need to change the griffin for the new style if thats what you want.

                Did think of that, but I am not keen on the sporthatch with no badge, I also like the enhanced factory look

                      Yep, heres the link to the rest of the badge upgrade, but I may re-do the steering wheel as I think I can do it better.

                            The hardest part was sizing up the badging, the new badge so happens to be the right size for the steering wheel.

                            You can't easily remove the airbag badge without damage, so you can :-

                            A) Put the new badge over the top of the original, making the mod reversable.

                            B) Slowly remove the face of the original badge until you have a nice flat surface, then fit the new one, this will make it look even more 'factory' but will be non reversable.

                              Thanks Matt, so the silver emblem will just peel off? very carefully?
