Anybody know where to find different color emblems for the grille and hatch? The only one I've seen is a carbon one and I'm more or less looking for black.

I'm trying to stay away from sanding the stock ones and painting them. ;D

I've been doing this with my GTI's for years: Go to a company that make signs for trucks/cars.
They cut the lettering out of sheets of vinyl.
I get them to put a sheet of vinyl (many colors available) over the lettering and then cut around the letters using an Xacto knife, leaving the vinyl stuck to the top of the letters/emblem.
I've even added a rabbit and had it done.
My United Gray GTI has red lettering to mach the red around the grill.
One other thing: If you want to put "2.0T" with matching font on your GTI, use the 2.0T from the EOS.

I got the 20th AE gti badge on the rear of mine.

Anyone know the Pantone matching color for the red in the grill and on the breaks? (those emblems would look hot in the same red) :p
Still not sure if I trust myself to do it.
:p

I make movie posters and video game boxes. There's a bodyshop across the street from my office and they said they have a number for a company that will paint the emblems, and I'll post when i get it. Think i'll design something in illustrator and have it run over the rear quarter panels and back to the emblem.
