Can anyone recommend a supplier of Opel badges for my Calibra?
Im thinking of Opelising it from Holden badges to Opel! Gotta embrace the Calibra origins!!

My car has the front bumper V-grille.. does the whole thing need to be replaced with the opel badge on the new grille??
Pricing??

Cheers fellas!

No, you can just replace your Holden badge :) E Bay Germany is worth a look.

Tut tut tut!  ::)

hahaha mate ;)

another question thats always been on the back of my mind.
My Cali is a manual and the gear stick knob on my shifter the top surface has cracked and rattles..
Ofcourse for the cali to go in reverse there's the plastic pasrt you have to pull up and then shift to 1st.. to get a replacement knob.. is it easy? would have to be a specific make for the calibra? anything else that would get me by?

My reverse is in a different place being the V6 but the knob is easy enough to change, getting the old one off is a tit though, I still have a scar on my hand ;D Google Richbrook, they do knobs :)

You could always take the gear lever out and put it in a vice pull the leather boot off and your see a metal pin your need a long screwdriver to flick it out

Yes, sometimes you'll get lucky as I managed to buy a brand new bonnet for ?100 funnily enough, from a Vauxhall dealer.

Photos from today!
Im considering replacing the Holden Badges with Opel ones! The current holden ones are looking dated and show their age! Im also considering a chrome "calibra" badge for the rear as a replacement like the V6 calibra badge.. Can anyone recommend where I can order from?

It's hard to import from ebay to australia. UK, Europe, Germany.. Most don't send to Aus. That's the problem!

Well if you find what you want on evil bay why not ask nicely and get it posted to a member who could then post to you?

I don't why sellers don't post to Aus or SA, they are missing a trick TBH! OK you take your chances a bit as some air mail you can't track it for some dim reason but there you go!
