    The x is a badge that has been taken off, what looks like a BMW, most probably an xdrive BMW meaning 4wd. (due to how small the letter is)

    It has nothing to do with Audi or a model of Audi, so looks like somebody has stuck it on for show.

    As above.

    Get it removed and whilst there, get rid of the A3 and 2.0TDI/2.0T/2.0 etc on the other side. They look much cleaner debadged!
