Thanks! People are definitely doing a double take, that is for sure. There are hardly any G8s in San Diego, nonetheless any Commodores :)

Quick Question?

G'day, just wondering if the G8's have a Pontiac badge in the centre of the steering wheel? The G8's in Australia have the Holden badge and would like to change to a Pontiac one if available. Thanks in advance, John

When you do a rebadge do you change the front fascia and hood as well? I am not sure I understand the concept if you don't. What would be the point in a car that is half Pontiac and half Holden in appearance? Just one of my odd thoughts.

actually, you can do a holden rebadge and still keep the stock pontiac front end. there are some commodore models that have the pontiac bumper & hood from the factory

Some do, some don't. Our cars are 100% Australian anyways.

ha that looks cool, I can see someone driving up behind you and checking your car out, then reading the 'commodore' badge and just being completely confused!

When the us division canned the g8 we had (Aussie) too many g8front ends left over. Holden made it a limited edition. Still no effect so now it is an option.
My father in law ordered a le ssv commodore and payed extra for the privilege of a limited edition. By the time he took delivery it was an option. Needless to say he was not very happy.
Cheers boys.

The few "limited edition" commodores I've seen have no front badge, so I'm guessing they don't make a Holden badge that fits our front end.

Thanks guys! I replaced the front arrowhead with a Third Shift Studios white concept dart, so it looks all white and very clean up front. I would recommend both the TTS front and Holden rear badges! I've had more people look at it now than ever before, trust me on that!
