    Hi all, I've had a bit of a lurk but thought I should probably post some pics. I've got a 2006 3.2V6 DSG which I've had for a few months.

    I'm afraid not much will happen mod-wise as it's a second car so i cant justify throwing too much money at it (aside from tax and fuel!) but I've added the LCR Splitter and Black Grill. The brakes will be replaced shortly then i must stop spending!


    My couple of questions are: What badge do I need to fit this? My old S-Line badge is far too big to fit, and the quattro badge I purchased is an older type. Does it need to be an S3 Badge? If so, can I bodge the S-Line bit to the S3 backing as I dont want to pretend it's something it isnt.

    Also, my car has the shark fin rear aerial thing and a phone cradle - but it doesnt seem to have bluetooth or anything like that as far as I can tell. Is the cradle/aerial a remnant of something long since removed?

    it's a quattro badge that goes on the front grille.

    is it not just an aftermarket phone cradle?

    The phone holder is a factory fitted option, you need to buy a phone model specific cradle & clip it on to the holder - which will then charge your phone and connect you to the shark fin for better reception.

    It may well have Bluetooth, but you have to search for the signal when you first switch the ignition on, as it shuts down pretty sharpish if no phone connects.

    Different mount type badges are available for peanuts from e-bay\Amazon.

    As above, but don't hold your breath on a compatible cradle as just about the only supported newish phone is the iphone

    Nice car by the way, will always have a soft spot for the 3.2!
