Half way through last year Audi had the Edition 1 variant which was one down from Vorsprung. I did not want the Vorsprung as it came with dynamic suspension and my personal preference was sports suspension. What I did then was to add on options to get it as close to a Vorsprung as possible. The 20" alloys were a special edition at the time so I went for them. As regards the badges I retained the front/rear quattro and Audi rings and the two front wing s-line.

Oh ok. I see now. Thanks for the explanation. Honestly I think I prefer your alloys. 鈽
did you remove the badges by yourself ? I鈥檓 afraid to do so.

Dental floss for the badge removal. You'll likely be left with the residue of the double sided tape that holds them on - I've found a rag moistened with petrol will soften it without damaging the paint. Or you could just leave it....

Don鈥檛 be afraid of badge removal it helps to play a hairdryer on them first softens the adhesive then, as John says just draw dental floss behind the badge one side to the other.
I usually use fine fishing line same thing and the residue of adhesive can also been cleaned off with Autoglym tar remover if you have it, other brands are available馃槀

Yep, heat gun on a low setting or hairdryer to loosen off, then elbow grease with autoglym tar remover to get rid of excess glue. Jobs a goodun... Worked a treat on mine when I did the black badges
