    I know mine will be getting washed and put on that's for sure...

    That's mine arrived.
    On first impressions it's not the quality I was expecting.
    I'll get the car washed later after some sleep and see what it's like.
    Cheers Jay for sorting this out so promptly.

    Yeah Jay typical after all your organising.

    That's what I was saying earlier... Hopefully that will make the quality appear slightly better.

    That looks pretty sweet mate. At first glance I thought it looked a bit busy... But after a while it actually looks quite sporty/aggressive being so close together. Wonder if the number plate boarder was removed if it would give it a different look? I like it

    i agree i think it look too much, but thats the license plate causing that. If it was just black i think the new badge would look alot more effective :D

    As already been said it looks too busy, but now seeing it further back, it looks good.

    Yeah I tried it above the splitter but I prefer it where I've now put it and if course so does the wife!
    I'll let her think she was right.

    Quattro location is good but you have 3 Audi ring logos, 2 S3 logos and an Audi logo all in close proximity.
    Looks far too busy, I would remove the number plate surround if it was me.

    Got mine this morning.
    Can't fit it yet as car is not arriving until September. The badge is in my stash of goodies to go on the car when it comes.

    @Marshy - it is your car so have it like you want it. Looks great either way in my opinion. :cool:

    Fitted to my 8L, I like it personally, not the same visual impact as on an 8P though.

    Cheers for sorting the badges jay it's appreciated mate.

    If there's owt to moan about to xenon it's the quality for £45 I was expecting better quality if I'm honest knowing what there like now I'd be hard pushed to pay £20.

    I'd also put longer screws to hold the plastic strip on which I intend to do.

    If the badge is still on the car come the end of summer I'll be surprised, just don't see it lasting.

    Removing the flies from the badge will be an issue.
    I think they look good on but as I said yesterday I think the quality and fixing setup is pretty gash.
    If I'd handled one before ordering I'd of put a price of £15-£20 on it.

    Have you got yours today Jay?

    Yes mate received this morning. I can only agree with all your comments. First impression thought looked good. Then picked it up and was very flimsy. I think they do look good on however unfortunately I don't think they are going to last too long (probably the jet wash will rip it off). Price was a bit steep considering the build quality. So overall mixed emotions really but still early days so may prove differently.
