    I have to say I like the older version, though I'm probably a bit biased cos' I have one on the back of my car. The new one is obviously more modern, but tells everyone it's an S3, the old badge makes people come over to have a butchers and see what it is - not sure if thats a good thing or not though.

    Yeah I agree with Joe. I prefer the old badges..

    Hmm perhaps a subtle mod (or de-mod!) coming up...

    I did really like old badge but on seeing new one in the flesh, I reckon it look well smart /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Think the new S3 badge set into steering wheel is a bit boring though /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I don't mind the the badges inside. Definately thinking of swapping the exterior badges.

    I'll have to have a nose at Jojo's car tomorrow and swap the badges over when he is not looking /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif

    What about no badge at all on the outside. Keep the un-initiated guessing!

    Ebay can be a crazy place on times! I've seen people get so caught up in bidding wars that they actually pay more for the part second hand than you can from the shops new!

    Perhaps people like Winning!

    The old one is much better, it looks much more grown up. I have the new one which doesn't look quite as 'special'. Any ideas where I could get the old style one and how much it would be and how hard it would be to fit?

    Does the dealer still sell them? They should do?

    Have a look on vagparts...

    Vagparts don't stock old ones (according to their site) but if I buy a new style one I will have the old going spare /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    New style badge!

    I changed mine a few months ago thanks to VAG parts.

    I also changed the rear light cluster, which makes the car now look "fresher" and more "crisper" edges.

    Personally I prefer the old style badge. I have debadged both S3s I've had and prefer the look with out them on....mainly to stop the little feckers from trying to pry it off with a screwdriver late one night /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/burningmad.gif

    I had to get the replacement badges and they cost £9.99 from an Audi Dealership (Ridgeway in Newbury) either for the S3 badge or the 4 rings.

    New one for certain. The old badge is too fussy. You need to have radar vision to read it!

    I agree totaly the old one is alamost the same as on 1992-94 S4's, the badge needed bringing up to date and the new one did it with style, same goes for the grille badge as well.

    For new badges look under new parts for the S3 on the VAG site they are only £5.96 ex p&amp;p they have two different prices on the site for the same thing.I got two for £16.67 I only want the 'S' one for my 18T A4 sport and the other for my wifes A3 1.6fsi sport.

    I prefer the old one, not as it looks beter, but as I have the new version on my tailgate I have noticed that trying to clean between the S and the 3 is a nightmare, where on the old one it looks much easier to clean. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile_smoking.gif

    Just called them about price diference and now have my order reduced to the lower price /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Quite fancy the 'competition' badge to replace front S3 one /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I think the later badge looks cheaper/ less involved than the earlier one, but then on the other hand you could say the later one is cleaner and less fussy. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif
