    After seeing gogz post of his "Quattro" grille badge which isn't to everyone's taste however I happen to like it.

    I have spoken to xenonz on eBay and if bought individually they are £49.99 with £5.30 P&P. however if more than 5 people are interested he can sell them for £45 delivered.

    Item number: 151313823783 [check it out]

    Just wondered if anyone else likes the look of them and would be interested with this group buy? They can be put into the majority of audi models but the advert clearly states the models that it's compatible for.

    Let us know

    Apparently not. Thin strip which bolts onto the pillars then the Quattro badge attaches to the strip. Comes with fitting kit.

    If I can get some numbers... I'll organise it, and take payment to pass on and deal with him sending to your addresses.

    I like the look of this but according to their youtube video it requires you to melt holes through your bumper, so if you don't like it your bumper is gonna look ****.

    gogz s3 - can you confirm fitment please? I've mentioned what you told me about the fitment of the strip on the pillars and then attaching the badge via screws (kit provided) is there anything else worth mentioning to put people's minds at ease?

    Looking at the YouTube video it shows melting holes in the plastic strip provided to line up with where you want to fit it so no holes needed in the bumper.

    eBay item does state it's universal but can only go on the image at the top of the page. It can go into the grille too I believe. If you search on google images to get an idea of different variations

    It's an easy job to do

    1) cut clear plastic to length of badge
    2) tape badge to strip and make holes with heated (i used a lighter) metal rod (supplied with badge)
    3) centre both badge and strip against where badge is being fitted, heat the rod and make holes through plastic and the grill
    4) untape badge and fit strip to car (screws supplied)
    5) screw badge onto strip (better using black headed screws)
    6) job done, stand back and admire :icon_thumright:

    cheers

    Yeah, but where i fitted my badge, there's just three tiny holes and even if badge was removed i doubt you would see them.

    I wonder if there is a way to fix this to something behind the grill (almost like a clamping effect)?

    I know it sounds a complete bodge job however hear me out... Once the badge is on the plastic. Cable tie the clear plastic to the pillars (it'll won't be visible as it'll be behind the lettering) and no bumper damage and removal will be simple. Bodge job but no damage...

    That was my thoughts on doing it. Or get 2 pieces of plastic to sandwich the pillars.

    Just heard back from xenonz uk on eBay and he has said that he can't go any lower than the £45 delivered as postage is £5.10 via recorded delivery. I've just asked if they're are any cheaper delivery options available to make the price a tad cheaper as I don't know about you lot but I'd rather pay less and wait 3-5 days than have it next day. Awaiting comms at the mo

    Update: £45 recorded delivery is the best price he'll offer. I'll keep this thread going till Friday so add your names if interested... Then I'll take payment at the weekend hopefully it'll be easier

    Pretty sure xenon uk is a member on here.
    Just incase he would accept PayPal payments etc.
    Just a thought

    That would be better to save any issues occurring... However some haven't got access to PayPal so I'll sort them out

    He won't budge mate. He doesn't send anything less than recorded delivery either so can't drop cost that way. Maybe if we get a good number it may be easier but so far no luck.
