    Not for everyone, but I loved this badge when I saw it on an C7 RS6, decided ages ago I was going to do it on my 8L.

    Not cheap @£45 posted, but I did have a plan B for the part if it looked ****. For me personally, I think it looks good!

    All opinions welcome.

    It's just cable tied to the lower grill ATM, so I can undo it at anytime.

    I like it. Don't think it would look good on any colour car other than black though.

    It is the slowest modded S3 on the forum, still running stage1 power after almost 14yrs ownership. Black rings and surround was DIY in my garden.

    It's cable ties, or ruin the lower grill screwing the thing on, so I went with ties as a temporary measure.

    Lupo is still VAG, easy enough to wire up if you know how, I have used Lupo mirrors aswell as part of the conversion naturally.

    Imho not sure, would need to see it in the flesh, like it on the original car but i think its too much badging with the number plate surround (even tho u got blacked out rings), your car looks awesome anyway JoJo!!
