I have no idea if one is being set up I made my comment as some interest was had in what I done. I have seen the guy that made them is not taking new orders until early January as he has a backlog he is doing with other badges also.

My plan for custom kick plates with someone else hit a dead end but found someone else I’m waiting to hear back from. This idea is proving to being a little slower in the making. I’m also replacing my coin button for my Leyo dsg shift knob just waiting on that also. My coin button I had custom made before whilst does what’s needed just wasn’t quiet right.

@Nidana these are awesome small details!

By kick panels do you mean the scuff trim as you enter the car and mind mentioning how much your SW logo and rear logo add-ons were?
Hi, Ian yes by kick panels I mean scuff trim but keep hitting dead ends for now. The front and rear badges were 75 euro not including shipping and I think the steering wheel was 20 euro off the top of my head not 100% sure about that.

Just an update i have someone doing the scuff plates but as they have not done them for the mk2 TT I'm sending them the whole sill section to be made up. So good news is its going ahead.

As per the above, if these were done in chrome to match the factory badging, I’d be all over a set of VR6 badges for mine…….any developments @Nidana ??
The person that made them only does it in the mentioned formats no chrome options. Unless I accidentally come across someone else that can whilst trying to get my dsg button redone.
I'm now waiting patiently for my door scuff plates and hoping they arrive in time for EvenTT 22.

That’s a shame about the chrome option. I wonder if these guys could help out to manufacture a chrome or even a stainless steel variant - according to their web site, they seem to be able to do just about anything……

I imagine if they could, they’d need a prototype of sorts even if it were just in the silver.

So a short time ago I did a thing. Well actually I saw a YouTube video and it hit an itch that I was already scratching at images will display the result below. So I'm waiting for a badge to be made up to insert into the steering wheel but also when the guy gets back to me going to see if he can do me a set again for the rear in black.
The reason being is the colour grade disappears on my car so you don't notice it so much and it's not matching the TT chrome effect. I have since plasti dipped my rear badges to black and it's a lot better but want to redo it as I got called out and it hasn't had the finish I wanted. It won't look it but the rear badge is straight the curve of the boot and photo angle is throwing it off.




@Nidana Do you by any chance know what size the letters are on the VR6 and size of the red box? Basically Iv got a guy how potentially can make these but wanted to make sure we had the right sizes.

if the project goes well happy to get others some made on the cheap 🤞🏼

I‘ve also fired off an enquiry (better late than never) to the guys I inked to earlier. We just need someone to make these at a reasonable cost and get numbers of people who would be interested as I doubt very much that one or two would be cheap.

Maybe we should start a list of members who are genuinely interested so we could put together a group buy?

Agree we should get a list of everyone that’s after one! The guys that I’m talking to do work for my business they specialise in acrylic so they said they could make it from that, which I was going to agree to but now thinking might go more OE look.

I think the OE look would lend itself to looking, well….more original and not an add-on. Are the badges above an example of what your guys can get made up? - they look nice and well made, reminiscent to me of the show number plates that can be bought with a choice of coloured acrylic under the letters.
Hard to tell, but is the lettering on these gloss black or chrome?

Stevie and I have both been in touch with the site Stevie has linked above about possibly doing them in ABS and chromed. In the interest of transparency, this is the returned query.

ABS Car Badges have the advantage of looking like metal but being made from a form of plastic, they can last a lifetime.

These are our recommended finish for car badges for most designs as they are lightweight, durable and very high quality.

They can be plated in chrome or various other finishes and can have various fixation methods, the most common being 3M adhesive.

Tooling - from £450

25 units (MOQ) - from £20.00 per unit 50 units - from £17.50 per unit 100 units - from £15.00 per unit 250 units - from £10.00 per unit 500 units - from £7.50 per unit

*Prices are an approximation and are based on a standard spec. no more than 150mm


Would need 25 people interested in a group purchase which might be a tall ask. We also figured that if 25 people took it up that we would be looking at £40 to take in shared tooling costs and postage. Nothing is set in stone as yet but this is just what's been returned.
