    A mate of mine spotted this on the roads. I think it's a model above the VXR... :huh:

    Not that I want to nitpick or anything - but being a CDTI, isn't it technically a TypeS?

    Good point! lol

    I think he's still got room for a few more badges. This could be the Vauxhall Astra Type R AMG S-Line Cosworth 1.9 CDTI

    Another one from the school of 'How to make yourself look like a total dick without even having to open your mouth'.

    Four letters, starts with C, ends in T, rhymes with stunt.

    Never believe a man with a fake 'upgrade' badge on back of car, likely to be a king of billy bull$h1t.

    VXR would be bad enough but using another car manufacturer is shocking! Bad form there!!!

    I think its rather fun :) We have an original Fiat 500 ( 1960's) running round locally with a collection of badges on the back from V8 turbo 16 valve to GTI, always makes me smile :)
    I removed all the badges from the back of my old VR6 golf and put a "Caddy" badge on. I hate badge snobbery :)

    Before fitting that badge do you have to remove 75% of the engine torque?

    See I don't mind this when it's blatant piss take, but when people stick RS badges on diesels, M badges on 320i's etc it just makes me sigh and think ...

    I once saw an M reg 318i with M badges all over it. the guy had even cut wonky holes above the wheel arches for the glued on M vents.

    it was so badly done my wife who couldnt care less about mods pointed it out. wish had taken a pic.

    My friend told me about this, he currently owns a VXR now and he seems to think the new one will do 0-60 in 5 seconds! I just replied with a huh as i believe he said it due to my S3 being faster, nicer and just simply a better car all round :D hahaha
