Fancy your S3 has as much power as an RS3 should have? Buy the badge to prove it!

    How long till someone does it (assuming it hasn't been done already)?

    In the last few months I've seen RS TDi's and all sorts. All badge, no trousers. These are on offer on Fleabay now.

    Verdict: A nob extension for your car :haha:

    Almost as bad as people putting 'turbo' and 'sport' and '16v' badges on their car?!

    My town has a Fiat barchetta badged up with four rings and TT badges :faint:

    Its a fine line putting RS3 badges on a S3..or 8P2 front on a 8P1 or even and S3 grill on a 1.4TD :sadlike: or S-Line badge on a non S-Line

    So thats mostl of us then :yes:

    Nothing wrong with altering the looks of the car IMO... just leave the badges off.

    Ohhh dear....

    When over badging a car, is the person doing it horribly insecure, or just suffering from delusional tendencies?!?!? Where do these delusions end is what worries me a little ! :laugh:

    It's almost like admitting publicly 'I will happily and openly falsify my status to live up to the aspirations I can't attain in reality'!

    Surely this is the best cost vs power mod that money can buy :)

    Quite like the black "S" that this company offers though.

    I had no idea you could buy these...silly me!

    I could have saved myself a few thousand bucks and had the car going as fast as anything out on the roads.

    I need at least a dozen of these so that everyone will know how fast my car really is.... :jester:

    A better trick would be to put a 1.6 badge on an S3, stealth power!

    Ruffling my own feathers if anything :yes: if Audi had stopped teasing a bit earlier and pulled its finger out - i.e built the car I wanted them to, yes mememe, then I would have been far more likely to get another one.

    As it is, the TTRS guts in an A3 SB shell is just a pipe dream (watch them release it next week now I said that) :lazy:

    If I'd have won a part share in the Euro Millions last weekend I'd love to have had it done as a technical exercise then delivered it to Audi in a crate with the slogan

    "Here's what you could have made!"

    At least the RS3 badge would be easy to fit. The 2.5 lump will need a fair conversion of mounts, battery relocation, ECU etc... so wouldn't be an easy ride. I'd borrow the Audi approach and not change the body work (eg. lazy) so it would have the sleeper look!

    Have another new car. Buy a batch of these and stick them on your current car and it will be faster/better/newer. People will stand back, rub their chins in amazement whilst admiring, wondering how wealthy, successful, handsome and enormously endowed the owner of this M badged monster must be.

    Surely that's what must happen, else why would anyone do it?

    :lmfao: why indeed!

    They have already put some M's on there (steering wheel and sill trims) obviously not enough and I'm just off to fleabay now to order half-a-dozen Taiwanese M's :p

    2 on the boot, 2 on the front wings, 1 on the grille and 1 stuck wonkily on the glovebox should get me over 400 bhp :notme:
