Saw a guy down here in MD. Nice looking G8 (I assume GT as it wasnt a manual) and it had nothing but a V badge on the back left.

in australi holden has a V series line so technically he's not wrong for putting that badge on his car its kinda like dodge and Chrysler sharing the srt badge...

Didn't have anything to do with this did it?

I actually wouldn't mind swapping out my V's for those holden V's. It wouldn't make any brand sense per se, but they look good.

My emblem on the back is faded & the sides are starting. That Holden badge would look good on there.

You're right, there's definitely a car in that picture. It appears to be white.

The holden badges are smaller than the V flags. I replaced all three because the flag colors were fading and coming apart. The Holden badges were cheaper than stock replacements.
The red is brighter than the Redline as well, by a touch... still not sure If I like them.
yes I know brand differences... but not like them guys that slap on snakes on their GTs type thing.

I was crusing by a gas stations pumps the other night. Saw a kinda-ok looking older gal with a new Mustang with snakes on the side. "Oh damn, that mama's got a hot ride!" I then saw as she was pulling out... single exit exhaust, quiet as a mouse... not even a GT. Tsk Tsk.

They do not come in black, they are badge for the holden.
They came from JHP Enhancements down under. I just called and had them sent slow and cost effective.
