I agree like the front, goes really well with the silver car

I'm surprised VW did not think of black badges - you can see the logo better, at the front, on light coloured cars when they are black. I like the black rear badge too mainly due to the chrome version being a bit large and 'in your face' for want of a better description. +1 from me...

after wearing a Fiat badge for over 12months, for me, the bigger the VW badge the better! lol

I owned a Fiat group car ten years ago and will never, NEVER buy one again! The build quality, repair and running costs were debilitating to say the least. I do like the look of the Fiat 500 but...it has a Fiat badge.

lol thats the polite version Mark!Yes Jimmy I agree that the 500 has an iconic design & shape which is why we fell for it & its not a bad car in the grand scheme of things ..... but it just does not come even close to an Up! imo
Was glad to be rid of it tbh & havent looked back

How did you wrap the badges? I've been researching online and you're the only person I could find who has black badges. Did you remove the badges first or did you use Plasti-Dip or something?

Although the Mk1 GTi, on which we are told the UpGTi is linked had a black VW emblem in 1975
Ah - didn't know / recall that
So you're adding a retro touch :wink:


For those who want a really big VW badge, here's one solution ... :devil:

And the rear in 1975 was understated and pretty horrendous....
