    missing s3 badge

    Hello there new to this site and all things internet based . But owned a few audis now . My first love of audis was a black 1990 audi 80 2litre 16v sports . Then I moved to a quattro version of the same car then I brought a 1995 red a4 1.8t sports with s4 bumpers . This is a car that I will never ever sell I bloody love this old car I'm an addict to it .

    But I have brought a black x reg s3 with the intention to fall in love with this as much as the red a4 but it's a hard car to love . The day after we brought her home she broke down and it went back to the garage then she came home a couple of days later . Then a week after that the brake lines went or the rears back in the garage next it had its identity stole and I started get speeding fines then the next thing clutch pedal went and the turbo pipes were splitting faster than I could change them and now some little sod has nicked the badge from the front but it's the chrome one with the depressed numbers on it .

    Can someone help me out and tell me where I can buy one . Looked on eBay and all the places but can't find one for love or money . Please help

    Give them the model and year and they should be able to sort it... they may ask you to PM your reg or VIN number... I wouldn't post it on the open forum but if you start the request on the forum first then they will let you know..

    I've just noticed my badge sits one slot lower that the red car, I got my car waaay back in 2001 from Audi, so curious which car is correct? Not that it matters one bit! lol

    Old style badge definitely much nicer IMHO, and stands out much better than new style badge.
