    I was having a play with photoshop a few weeks ago and wondered how the S-Line badge would look in black, I think this would really suit cars with the optics grille because the silver badge looks a little out of place.

    The badge would be very difficult/impossible to paint but i've been speaking to a supplier who can laser cut a piece of black vinyl to place over the badge (the same way the red colour is achieved on the diamond / /

    It would look like this (excuse the **** photoshop), would anyone be interested in a group buy?

    If all you want is the diamond in black then they are actually available from the dealer.
    They are listed on ETKA as BLACK/CHROME.

    I just did a mod on my S3 grill badge, as I have A3 & the grill had S3 badge I wanted sline, so I took s3 back plate & put the sline front plate on this so it retained the oem fixing of the s3 grill as they're different, what yer think?

    I think ETKA is a software like Vag. Ask some one who as ETKA for the partnumber and go to the dealer.

    I was going to do the same but wasn't keen on the backing of the old badge being visible, I was after a more elegant solution :)

    I see what you mean, but I liked it because its different from others I've seen & also it has a more 3D effect as the S on the original S3 had a slightly raised part as you can see, which makes the S part little more prominent.
