Badges!?

Best place to find replacement rear badges? Vw logo and golf.... surely not £40. Anyone know of a good replica source?

Not aware of any replica ones. Could try Matt Palmer if Mk2 spares. He’s a club sponsor.

Good console used can fetch Good money. Settled for satin black paint for my rear vw badge.

There’s also a guy on eBay that does chrome vinyl lettering to recondition worn out ones. Results are quite good I’m led to believe.


Side note: your user name... where are you? There’s a fair few active members in Bristol and the south west. And we used to run monthly Bristol meets before Covid.

Hi. Do all  GTI 16v badges fit both 7 and 5 slot grilles, or do I need a special one for my 7 slot?  Thanks.

The badges for 5 and 7 slat grills are NOT interchangeable. If you have a 7 slat grill you need and early badge.
Thanks
Anyone got an early 16v badge?

I’m in Thornbury. We used to meet every moth at Bradley Stoke, I’m hoping we can get back to it next year.
