    Hi All!

    Can someone please tell me if the S3 Logo on the brake calipers can be removed and replaced with a new one?

    They seem to be on a plate that can be removed.

    Thanks

    No they can't. You can paint an re apply one but would look poop. Buy new ones from audi.

    No, is it a caliper spring with the s3 logo on it - i need new ones as 4 years of cleaning, wear and tear have worn away the logo.

    I believe they are £30 from Audi for the pair.

    You can buy plain ones with no logo on them from Seat which go on their Cupra's

    Yeah, sounds like a plan.

    Does anyone know the part number for them?

    TPS prob same price as dealers in the main..... stoke Audi are probably the most likely to be the cheapest

    I found at the weekend that TPS are now governed by VAG head office which is why discounts apply to how much business you do with them, in other words your buggered unless you order loads off them as they cannot operate a discretionary discount anymore

    This is a good shout - been wondering about these for a while.

    TBH my decals aren't in bad condition, I could do with touching up the calipers in a few places though (corners mainly) with some satin black as the paint has chipped away in places and you can see the exposed areas starting to rust over (last winter took it's toll)

    Anyone else noticed this?
