At the time I re-glued mine, I called the dealership for a replacement emblem and was informed that I had to buy the whole replacement grill piece for some outrageous sum (I don't recall the amount, just that it was a LOT). That'* why I just reglued mine back on, faded and all.

you may want to try gmpartsdirect.com

they may have them by themselves..i think the entire grille is about 125$(shipped) from them...dont quote me on that though.

If you can clear the old stuff out yourself and find the right paint and feel comfortable with it, it really would be the cheapest thing to do. Getting the silver in the "+" symbol might be the hardest, but if you're out of luck trying to get just the arrow on GMPD.com that may have to do. Anyone who has been to a junkyard ever been able to get just the arrow without the grille?

Well if you were able to do it at your house I'm sure someone here can do it at a yard.

They don't sell the arrowhead separately. Neither does GMPartsDirect. Some kids ripped the arrowhead off my car and stole it. I had to get the whole front grille, and yes, it was around $120 from GMPartsDirect. But I'm anal about my car, so I paid it, just to get the red arrowhead.

To get it cheaper, post in the Wanted forum for the salvage yard vultures to look for one for you. I can't believe nobody sells the arrowhead separately. Seems like there'* a market there and nobody filling it.

If you read further up in this thread, you'll see that he had to pry his off and was removing the red anyway. When you pry them off, or they fall off, the adhesive that'* used to keep them on the badge holder takes the color with it.

Now you could get the whole badge/holder off the grille by drilling out the plastic spot welds, I suppose, but there would be a challenge involved with re-attaching it to your grill.

One of these days, one of us will come up with a good way to do this, I believe.

Good call lash, didn't even think about that. Junkyard won't work except for a whole grille assembly and I'm guessing it'd be hard to find one without any fading already. GMPD.com would be the only way to go as I see it, but I'm not getting a match when I search that part number "25625878" posted. Am I missing something? What was the price listed by the way?
