    Tailgate badges

    Has anyone noticed the height difference on some models. Maybe it's just mine but all other A3's seem to have the rear badges higher up. Just wondered if anyone's sit the same as mine? Mines the lowered one on the right.

    Mines same as the left, but can't say I've ever seen any down that low

    They should be a lot higher. The one on the left is how they should be. The badges must've been removed at some point and then replaced by someone who just put them wherever they thought could be right.
    This is usually after some paintwork has been done.

    Just debadge it, it'll look much better anyway.

    Edit: Now I think about it, maybe its different on later models. I can't remember where mine were now, although mines a Sportback

    Yeah I reckon the previous owner de-badged it. I know it's not been painted as it had warranty job by Audi and they went round the car checking paint depth and all was original. Strange one really. More intrigued than anything.
