    My 2014 mod

    Not for everyone, but I loved this badge when I saw it on an C7 RS6, decided ages ago I was going to do it on my 8L.

    Not cheap @£45 posted, but I did have a plan B for the part if it looked crap. For me personally, I think it looks good!

    All opinions welcome.

    Before



    After




    It's just cable tied to the lower grill ATM, so I can undo it at anytime.

    I like it. Don't think it would look good on any colour car other than black though.

    It is the slowest modded S3 on the forum, still running stage1 power after almost 14yrs ownership. Black rings and surround was DIY in my garden.

    It's cable ties, or ruin the lower grill screwing the thing on, so I went with ties as a temporary measure.

    Lupo is still VAG, easy enough to wire up if you know how, I have used Lupo mirrors aswell as part of the conversion naturally.
