Default Someone broke my rear lid emblem!

The first time I take the g8 out for the night in 2 months, I pull the car back into the garage and notice that the center red portion of arrowhead emblem has been cut out! You can see the wedge mark of a knife against the side of the chrome and where the interior red used to be! I mean at least I didnt get a key mark along the paint anywhere, but how old school is that taking car badges? So I called gm, $85 for replacement!! That is definitely not an option. I know the g6 rear arrowhead sells for like 20 shipped brand new, think itll fit and look the same?

People got no respect these days, if its not one thing its another.. keying up someones car because its nice, throwing shopping carts into them. My personal favorite is when you park way in the back and some clown parks next to you just to be a dbag. Some people just need to be throw screaming from a helicopter. At least its a quick fix, coukd have been much worse. Still sorry to hear it

Wish I had a trunk monkey..

Post an inquiry in the WTB forum of the For Sale section. Emblems are available from time to time and you will get them much cheaper through a member on here.

There is also the Concept Darts that I think look pretty good...3rd Shift Studios

thirdshiftstudios.com/G8-concept-darts.html

...of course they aren't cheap :-\

That blows . Glad they didn't key the car or worse though. I would think a emblem would be less then twenty. I got my Holden one for 25.

I cracked my front bumper Pontiac emblem, taking it off to paint the bumper. I thought oh well $25 no big deal!! The damn thing was $95 dollars.

Punish the guilty by stealing from the innocent? Yeah, makes sense.

Punishing the guilty would be getting yours back. This is about getting something for free. Stealership probably wouldn't even notice.
