    What’s people’s thoughts on badges? Personally I’m a fan of chrome but I’ve got to say some Audi’s sporting the black badges are growing on me! What’s your thoughts? [​IMG]

    For me, it depends on the colour of the car.
    I thought about black rings for my Bitdi, but it looks odd, black on black.
    Black Audi’s must have Chrome, but white or silver cars, black rings look good.

    I did too, but the wife thinks I’m an emo with Black edition and black rings, so I stuck with the chrome.:)
    I like the black rings on the rear though, especially on grey/white/red.

    Also black rings aren’t as bad as glowing rings.
    I’ve seen one or two of those, tacky as.....

    I think the rings need to be chrome on the front otherwise it looks like the badge is missing.

    yes i agree - went top the trouble of fitting the black ones, then decided i didn't like it so replaced the originals ...... It reminded me of the feeling i get when you see a Skoda in that awful "primer" colour - unfinished

    Yeah I agree with you both, don’t think I’d be able to live with chrome front and black rear though

    I was thinking about putting black rings on the back of my Avant as it’s Floret silver & I’ve sort of gone for a black & silver look.

    Your Avant is beautiful with Chrome rear rings and gloss black diffuser.

    I was always going to black mine out at first when I got around to it but there's something about the chrome on the white I quite like it, looks very clean.

    Clean.
    That’s exactly what it makes you think even if the car isn’t. :)

    I'm thinking of keeping silver front because of the black edition grill and black rings on the back as I have a metallic red so would look awesome.
    The only thing stopping me is I cannot find black "A6" "TDI Ultra" badges to match.

    I think I’m going to do the same on mine. As for the other badges in black it looks much better debadged. Mine came factory debadged

    i did this but found there was a raised area under the rear, so you could see where they has been after a bit of road dust build up?

    What size have people bought? eBay is showing either 193mm or 216mm long for the rear. Ones appears smaller and one larger than my original.

    I will either remove the other badges or replace them with black however I can only find "A6" and "TDI" no "Ultra".

    Have you used any adhesive to stick the new rings on or just double sided tape? Not sure how much I trust the tape.

    I just used the sticky back stuff it came with. It was branded 3M and has held well.

    Hi folks, new member here and new to Audi’s bit have bought myself a bitdi.

    I have the black rings on the front but undecided whether to de-badge the rear completely or go black rings there also.
    Does anyone have a link to the correct size rings for sale anywhere in black please?

    Welcome! You're car looks great.

    As per my post above, I got mine from eBay, there are two different sizes, one slightly smaller and one slightly larger.

    Finished and pleased with the result. I've kept the silver on the front as I think the black edition grill looks too washed out without the contrasting colour.

    Thanks. Have the wheels black as well so the back rings are the only thing left chrome really.

    Will order them up from Ebay this week.

    Looks way better than having the badges on. I really like an understated but not standard look. And your black rings does that.
