I'd love to swap out at least the front bumper badge for a Holden/Opel/vauxhall ... Preferably all. I'd love people asking what is that?!.

Any ideas for a source, I've been trying for a while with no luck.

Believe it or not--you're not the first person to go down that road. Opel re-badging (or restoration, depending on your viewpoint) is not easy--just because of the extended bits of the 'blitz' logo--unless you get the entire grill assy.--also covered in this forum, just use the search box. The Vauxhall version is covered here:

Thanks, I definitely see some leads in the threads, biggest question is what year insignia do I look for if I have a 2018, bc it's the first of the sportback generation for Buick. Like will a 2017 badge fit with the same hassle?

Unfortunately, you will need to replace the whole upper grille in order to have a Holden/Opel/Vauxhall look... Buick Regal grille parts are not compatible with Holden/Opel/Vauxhall grills.

You don't need to replace the whole grill with some time spent in the shop to modify the Buick emblem. I spent a total of $230 including shipping converting my wagon back. That includes two stick on Opel emblems (rear ones), 4 wheel center caps, and a stick on emblem for the steering wheel (came as a 4 pack). Steering wheel emblem was an ebay item (50mm). All others came from Bitzparts in Germany. How I converted the front emblem is in a post in this forum.

Note: I do not have Active Cruise Control. If I did than yes, a whole new grill would need to be purchased.
