Black VW boot badge
« on: April 14, 2011, 07:13:34 PM »
Anyone know where you can buy a black MkV Boot badge for a 58 plate Pirelli (curved back in the inside) I bought this from ebay but the back is flat and the edge is not the same as my boot badge  :sad1:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Golf-MK5-5-V-Black-VW-Boot-Rear-Badge-Decal-Emblem-GTI-/220693278308?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item3362582e64#ht_3379wt_907

I wonder how much a factory badge is, I could spray myself ?

Quote
It is made of strong material and comes with self adhesive foam tape pre-installed and has a flat not curved backside.
(please keep in mind the badge may require modifications to the trunk release and / or the backside of the emblem, since there are different MK5 models on the market.)


The GTI isn't just a machine. It's very much a living, breathing thing.

It's a fair point but the advert does say may and specs years to 2008, without seeing it and looking you don't know tbh. It could have been easy right ?

If the add had said not suitable for xxx then I would not have bought

Shame really

I also bought the front black grille badge from the same seller which fits perfectly but its the boot badge thats the problem,
I sent them a mail regarding the fact it don't fit mk5 golfs, early style or 3d style boot badge.
But funnily enough not had a reply & that was weeks ago & the same badges are still for sale stating they fit mk5's lol
Maybe a nice mail to E-Bay will solve that problem.

Well I had the early style whiteworm type badge.
Bought a new style badge off a member on here, took off the silver VW part, really easy to do,
then simply gonna spray it black myself when I get the chance.

Don't have a clue about wrapping, sorry.

i carbon wrapped my front one but i couldnt get it to curve like the black so iv got some creases in  :sad1:
looks ok until you get up close, might be because i bought it from motorsave, so it wasnt the 3m stuff
should look good  :happy2:
