    S3 front Grill Badge alteration??? to Quattro???? Advice needed

    Hiya, Fitting the S3 Optics Grill but dont want to keep the S3 badge on it. I'm after trying to fudge it to get the Quattro one but using the fitment from the S3 (if that makes sense) Has anyone done this??

    Do the badges just pull apart so the front leaves the back fitment part or will they just snap and break???

    I really want my Quattro badge back on but it just wont fit, even if I try to glue it, so trying to use the S3's fitment.







    Again thanks in advance

    Sarah peal off the S3 so you just have the fitment and see if you can get the quattro badge of its fitment and sticky tape or glue the quattro logo to the s3 fitment if that makes sense lol? I just slowly pealed off the S3 logo off the fitment as its only attached by sticky back tape of some sort.

    Yeap peel of S3 & red diamond shape, clean up sticky bits with white spirit, then with double sided sticky padded tape stick quattro on front of the S3 back plate, dont use glue as its brittle & will possibly fall of with knocks & bangs, sticky padded tape is durable & will move so wont get knocked of, I did this with my SLine badge.

    not to be pedantic(but I am) but we don't drive cars with quattro. We have haldex and 4-motion. I would rather see you put a Haldex performance badge on rather than quattro. I have one and will post a pic if you want.

    What utter nonsense!

    Audi use the term Quattro to describe both the Haldex system and the Torsen CD (not 4Motion, thats VW branding for Haldex) so using your methodology we'd re-badge an RS4 with "Torsen type III planetary type center differential"....might not fit on the grill though eh??

    Both systems drive 4 wheels (be it temporarily under certain conditions or permanently) so I think using the term quattro (meaning 4) is perfectly allowed.

    Looking forward to seeing the finished mod Sarah!
