    Morning,

    Please can someone tell me the exact locations of the badges on the boot lid or how i can refit new badges after the old badges have been removed?

    How do you the dealers fit the badges, i assume they use some sort of template?

    Thanks:icon_thumright:

    Thanks for that, do you know if you get some sort of template to fit them when you buy the badges?

    Thanks

    id say keep them off, its still looks standard with them off, you can request the car from new to be badge-less.

    Persoanlly I'd leave them off, however, if someone has access to Elswin you can view the template which contains the exact measurements of the badges. I don't have access to it at the mo but could send the details through tonight if no one replies in the meantime mate ;)

    Good man, if you could show us some sort of template when you get a minute that would be great, i don't know whether I'll put them back on yet, just mulling it over that's.. You could say I'm a bit bored and looking for something to do. :haha:

    Is yours a quattro? And does it have a quattro badge? If so the badges look better with the Quattro badge!

    Mines not a quattro no, i know which bads you mean, i won't be putting a quattro badge on, but i have seen A3's with an S-line badge where the quattro badge sits, that looked pretty good.

    Thank

    Don't go putting an S-Line badge on there, you wouldn't get away with it ;)

    Check with Audi; on most VAG cars, the letters come held in a clear plastic pack. It holds the letters in the exact postion needed - you simply remove the backing, press the holder to the car and then pull off the clear plastic pack.

    That way, all you need to do is mark the position on the car using masking tape along the bottom and one edge.

    You can see what I mean here http://www.awesome-gti.co.uk/product.php?xProd=3418&xSec=391

    Info came from Elswin mate, software that the dealers use.

    If you do a quick search on flea bay you'll probably be able to pick it up for about a fiver.

    As for the badges mate, I'd leave them off. Makes the back end look a lot smoother ;)

    This is exactly the information I need! Would you be able to repost the photos please? (I'm assuming it's valid for a 2011 Audi A3 3dr?)

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    I don't suppose you could repost the images if you still have them? This is exactly the information I need (assuming it is relevant for a 2011 3dr A3?).

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    James
