The back end will certainly look better for de badging, so long as you leave the Vauxhall griffin, as there are two locating pins in the badge itself, which would leave holes. I am also considering this myself. It does give a cleaner line to the car and looks good.

i've de-bumpstripped mine, it does look miles better, the only bad bit is getting the horrible sticky tape stuff off.

How did you do yours?

When I had to take the strip off the door, that I am getting resprayed soon. I boiled up a kettle and poured that on the door, the moulding came off easily then, just that damned tape

tbh it was quick and it took the stuff off, had i been a bt more patient it would have been better, but it was freezing and dark and i was determined to finish it. Scratched it a bit, most of it T-Cutted out, bit of touch up paint and roberts your fathers brother :)
