    Hi all,

    I've been searching ebay and trying to google, front and rear black Audi badges for a 8L, don't seem to find a problem with the 8P.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

    Could you not just plasti-dip some standard ones?

    Haha....

    Being really lazy would be to not clean the Audi rings for a few months and then they'd be black...free of charge and you wouldn't even need to fit them! :) lol

    ive sprayed mine a couple of times and they just get stoned chipped. as said, either plasti dip them, or get them wrapped. Im pretty sure though you get get 8l badges of ebay as I was looking not that long ago.

    I removed my rear badge completely (personal preference) & sanded, filler primed, sprayed and lacquered my front grille surround and badge and it hasn't suffered from any chips yet. Didnt take long atall. If i was to do it again i would plasti dip them.
