They're very rare to come across, I picked a "genuine" one up a few years back that came in the VW box and all.

Someone had just repackaged it with a cheap one and after a year it was chipped and going green all over so just watch out!

Seen one on eBay that the seller says is £25 but no idea if it is legit.

Shows it with a VW box too but now your post makes me doubt it is genuine! Lol

I got mine for the exact same price on eBay. In the VW box with the part number.

Wasn't genuine in the end. Problem is that the corrosion will take a year to show up so by then you can't come back to the seller complaining.

Last time I called they were looking for around €100  :stupid:

I chose to opt for a non genuine and replace every 2 years for that price!

I actually found one last night that's brand new in my car press!

It's slightly smaller than the average one which is why I never liked it....

So that's another thing to keep in mind when you do buy it, check the size of your existing one vs the new one.

1mm all around makes a huge difference aesthetically.

From memory the drill holes are different so it requires you to drill a new hole to thread the bolt through!

Anyone know if the front mk7 badge is a straight fit for our mk5 front grilles? :stupid: Or whether the rear is the correct size to stick on to the existing mounting plate if the front isn't a direct fit? cheers.  :happy2:

@gman the clips do look very similar from what I can see but I'm not aware of anyone who has fitted one. Would be good to know so I could get a front red badge to match the back!
