GSi
« on: 07 May 2018, 22:19:51 »

As we seem to be on memory lane, talking about Carlton and senators, Vauxhall has revived the GSi badge on the new insignia and Iíve already seen my first and like the Carlton they look really smart in grey !

To be hoped that it doesn't turn out like the SRi badge where just about every Vauxhall you saw was wearing one.

I see Vauxhall tv adds are promoting the "British company since" 1903 ?

If anybody wants to buy GSi badges , for their 1 ltr Corsa etc , they sell on Ebay  :y

That's because it sounds better than "A British company between 1903 and 1925 when it was sold to General Motors, an American company"

They can paint it gunmetal grey and stick a GSi badge on it, but it doesn't have rwd, 6 cylinders or 24 valves so it aint a real GSi.  :)

Didn't really matter, as in the targeted market, the badge meant more than the performance/handling.

Hence, it stood for State Registered idiot.

My astra wears an 'elite' badge, but it hasn't even got Bluetooth, or sat nav. Badges mean eff all. Used to, though.
