For all those with worn S3 steering wheel badge.

My little S3 badge was worn, but I didn't want to get ripped off by the stealers, or even attempt to paint mine, luckily I fount a self adhesive aluminium replacement on eBay for £4.99, perfect fit and just sticks over the original.

Looks much better in the metal, pictures don't do it justice, certainly worth a fiver, as for the link, I'm not very good at all that malarkey, I knew someone would do it anyway, bit of a techno twonk I'm afraid:)

No I'm not that much of a mug as to spend near on £30 for tiny bit of plastic.


Sadly I would be LOL...

Get the pic up mate... there is a limit on the physical size of the pic you can upload so try reducing the resolution of your phone camera and take it again

It's only £20 for the right one....

If these cars are going to go up in value over the next few years as you have previously advised on another thread then it will only be for the ones that are correct and with only the very best quality mods. This is one of those things that every buyer or driver will see first....

I'm not calling anyone a mug that's not my style but with the decline in numbers of these cars which we are already spending more on than they are worth...why flinch for another £15??

On the listing the first pic looks normal with the 'S3' indented and looks like it could be passed off as a genuine badge but on the second pic the 'S3' looks like it's raised and looks terrible.
Like you I refuse to pay the £30 price tag for a new one which is why I painted mine but it would be interesting to see a better pic of yours.

If your using IOS you could try something like the 'simple resize' app (or similar) to scale the image down, Maybe that could work

The 2nd pic is clearly the "reverse" side of the badge fyi
