    Hello there new to this site and all things internet based . But owned a few audis now . My first love of audis was a black 1990 audi 80 2litre 16v sports . Then I moved to a quattro version of the same car then I brought a 1995 red a4 1.8t sports with s4 bumpers . This is a car that I will never ever sell I bloody love this old car I'm an addict to it .

    But I have brought a black x reg s3 with the intention to fall in love with this as much as the red a4 but it's a hard car to love . The day after we brought her home she broke down and it went back to the garage then she came home a couple of days later . Then a week after that the brake lines went or the rears back in the garage next it had its identity stole and I started get speeding fines then the next thing clutch pedal went and the turbo pipes were splitting faster than I could change them and now some little sod has nicked the badge from the front but it's the chrome one with the depressed numbers on it .

    Can someone help me out and tell me where I can buy one . Looked on eBay and all the places but can't find one for love or money . Please help

    Give them the model and year and they should be able to sort it... they may ask you to PM your reg or VIN number... I wouldn't post it on the open forum but if you start the request on the forum first then they will let you know..

    I'd have to agree with jojo. I actually prefer the pre-facelift badges.

    I think the matching style of badge fits best with the edition of the car, sorted :)

    Old style badge definitely much nicer IMHO, and stands out much better than new style badge.
