Where can I find out where "V6T" badges should sit on my wings?

So the lettering/badges on my wings on one or both wings are positioned wrong & it's really bugging me!

On one the "T" looks too high, on the either side the gaps between the letters seem wrong.

Want to sort them out by either replacing them or removing & re positioning with fresh double sided tape, although that will be fiddly!

Cheers,

Russ

Germans say "T" is good ya?

Edit:- my non Audi but look okay Supercharged badges that were bought many years ago are still waiting for action, I was worried that when I swopped them I would have that "are they straight/right height?" problem.

The T is for forced induction TFSI not turbo, id stick with the V6T or go none at all as every man and his dog goes for the supercharged badges ( no offence to anyone had a couple of pairs myself )

Just put them where your happy with them thats what i would do

Hmm, I wonder if V6 & supercharged is too much!!

According to Audi's own glossary, the "T" in "TFSI" does stand for "Turbo".

I know; why do they do it?!

I have to say though it does make me chuckle every time someone asks about my motor and they say " oh ye the s4 the V8 one " and i say " no its a v6 supercharged " cue the blank stare

From what iv seen that unless your into audis the supercharged one we have is prob the least know, even had a stand up argument with an s3 owner one time who was adiment my car couldnt be supercharged as it was an s4, very funny

But TFSI stands for Turbo Fuel Stratified Injection

EDIT read whole thread before engaging keyboard....

Mine came with the 'model designation delete' option and I had thought about refitting 'V6S' on the front wings instead of 'V6T', that could be an option if you could find an 'S' in the same font.

Very handy! I was going to use detailing tape to make sure it's equidistant from the edges. Do you have one for the 'S4' on the rear boot lid?

'Just to clarify, the "T" is to denote the TFSI technology which reduces emissions, increases power and fuel economy.

3.0 litre V6 TFSI

The FSI part is very clever and combined with forced induction it creates Turbo fuel stratified injection (TFSI). Its very clever hence why Audi feel they need to highlight it in the badge. Its avail on a few of the powertrains and the FSI part is famous for being on the B7 RS4 4.2 taking the old 4.2 v8 from the B6 S4 and adding an extra 74 BHP (340 to 414 or 344ps to 420ps, pet hate when ps figures are quted as bhp figures - 1bhp = 0.987ps) and increased fuel economy, although its not just the FSI part and is helped by other modifications and technologies. Just FSI is said to increase power by as much as 15 percent.

Instead of trying to explain it further, here is the Wiki info:

Turbo fuel stratified injection (TFSI) denotes a type of forced-aspiration ("turbo") engine where the fuel is pressure-injected straight into the combustion chamber in such a way as to create a stratified charge. FSI (VAG) direct injection technology increases the torque and power of spark-ignition engines, makes them as much as 15 percent more economical and reduces exhaust emissions.

Some advantages of TFSI engines:

Better fuel distribution and better fuel charge inside the combustion chamber
During the injection process the fuel gets evaporated, cooling the cylinder chamber
Higher compression ratios, which translates into more power
Increased fuel combustion efficiency
Higher power during pick-up of vehicle.



So basically the T is is part of the overall induction technology title, not specific to turbo's or superchargers.


For me, the OEM badge is the correct one, but the supercharged badges do look good.

I'll see how I feel when I get mine, currently stills searching (5 months so far) for the right B7 RS4 but beginning to think the right choice would be a B8 S4 to replace the B6 S4.

Sorry for the long winded write up, had to do it.'

Well, stage one is done, gotta love the fishing line trick to remove them, no dents from screwdrivers, no snapped finger nails!

Good choice! Went for them myself :)

The red goes well with the calipers I think.
