Looking at getting the front and rear Audi badges in gloss black and the rear RS3 one done too... just looking to confirm if the badges on the FL are the same size as the PFL cars

Cheers

Anyone with a FL model... would you mind measuring the front and rear Audi badges please?

Are they the same as the PFL?

I’m also on the search for the RS3 front badge... no luck as of yet

How easy was the front Audi badge to remove mate? I’ve got the same 3 badges at home ready and waiting for the car

Can someone just drop a link from eBay of the exact Audi rings please. Having never used EBay there appears to be bloomin loads, how do I know what’s legit and the right ones?

The K-electronic ones are good but quite expensive.

They re-finish oem badges which is probably why they ain’t cheap.

There used to be a company called euro badges.com but they seemed to have closed down.

Mine are from a fella on Instagram under the username @fresh_mods_uk

They all seem the legit parts but as the car isn’t here yet they aren’t fitted

I would be interested in these....

Quick one, are these badges easy to fit ??

I have not find any mat alu badges, but I will buy if it exists ;-)
I have not changed myself but as I have read, it's not that hard but it requires some patience.

Easy mate. Most difficult bit is just getting the existing clue off. More of a pain in the a** than difficult.

Thanks.

Are they glued on then ?

Rear badges are glued on. Front grill badge is clipped in but can be carefully teased off with a plastic trim removal tool (ie, without actually having to remove the grill).

For the rear badge I used a heat gun and some strong nylon fishing line (or briad may also work). Gently warm up the badge with the heat gun and put the fishing line underneath the badge. Pull it across so as to slice through the glue underneath (like a cheese wire). I tied a large loop in the fishing line to make it easier to grip.
Once the badge is off, you will need some cleaner (a solvent) to clean off the glue residue left behind (see pic below)

Tip: Cut a template (piece of card) before removing the original badge. You can then tape it on the car and use it to position the replacement in the right spot.

The glue residue left behind can be a real pig to get off.....

Ha ha, no not me!
Just passing on some helpful knowledge to fellow owners regarding my experience with some of the upgrades that others may be considering adding to their car. Pictures always help too.

Real easy to break / damage the front rings and the surrounding area so be careful.

Phil3 told me about a lad on insta, bought front and rear Audi badges and the rear RS3 badge for 36....so why the feck you’d pay in excess of this for one badge is beyond me

Yeah after reading this post I contacted this chap through Insta and got same badges for my FL saloon. Picked car up Friday and this was my first mods before the weekend was over. Will post up pics and spec soon.

Hi again Beebee-one.
Any particular product you used to remove the glue residue left behind after removing the rear badge?

And what product would you recommend to glue the new badge?

I'm thinking of swapping mine to black front and rear.

Thanks in advance.

I tried glue and tar remover from auto glym but it was not very good. I then resorted to petrol and it took the glue straight off with a little soak on a rag and wiped in.

You'd never guess, I was snowfoaming her today and don't ask how or why but the lance mustn't have been clipped on properly. It ****** flew off staring at the top of the boot and dented and scratched it. Luckily a friend of mine has his own body shop so he is going to sort it mates rates...
