Ever want to change up the look of your MK7s rear badge. Kind of hard when it houses your rear view camera. We'll DeAutoKey has made a solution which is cost effective and also makes a world of difference. Below are pictures for the different vinyl badge inserts they have to offer. They have plaid (personal favorite), stickerbomb, German colors, and textured black fiber. These are made of automotive grade vinyl and have a strong adhesive which will stand the test of time. The plaid has been on the vehicle for 3 weeks and has been through 7+ days of 100*F plus weather. Thunderstorms and heavy winds. And it still looks like the day I put it on. PLEASE NOTE: ALLOW AT LEAST 2 DAYS OF DRY WEATHER AFTER INSTALL SO THE ADHESIVE CAN SET PROPERLY.
As always with coming from DeAutoKey, you are backed by amazing customer service and an amazing product. Any questions feel free to PM me. Thanks

I like the plaid, and realize that these things are always a bit of a compromise, but think it would work better if the pattern was shifted so that more appeared in the bottom V. That said, I'll likely get one when I get my VII.

TO_Turbo - no compromise here, it simply goes with the flow of the pattern and the single red stripe against a black background is a very popular design, it tested well so far. :)

I'm guessing the badge has to come apart to fit this as its a single piece??
No, this is a 5pc set, this is cut perfectly to match the voids, so you simply peel and stick the vinyl onto the voids of the emblem.

If you pop the emblem off, there is an insert that goes between the emblem and the car. This goes on that insert.
Yes, but there is no need to pop off the emblem.

Oh yeah, I can see on the plaid one how you messed it up a bit........
Sorry, that is simply not true, and we never had an issue with any customer saying otherwise, in person this looks great and pops. All the plaid lines up perfectly and we guess in person you can see the single red stripe on the bottom better which is done on purpose as it is a better and more popular design to have a single stripe on a black background.

We are not asking you to buy this product if you think it is messed up, but we guarantee it is not.

I don't think he means deautokey messed up the product. He's implying that the person that put the stickers on did and I see it as well. Not a big deal, it is person dependant on how well everything gets lined up and put on, not how the vinyl is cut per say. Need some sort of fool proof jig or a very steady hand to get everything lined up perfectly. :thumbup:

Ya that is true. I have been dealing with a compressed nerve in my neck and therefore my left hand is dealing with odd sensations. So it was hard for me to keep steady when trying to put it on.

I see, we did misunderstand what he was saying. We apologize.

Sorry to hear that, we didn't notice the difference personally. You are looking at extreme close up of this vinyl, from 3-5 feet at normal viewing range, it looks great.

Just to clarify, I think it looks good. So good I at first thought it was a single piece. After the explanation it was a 5 piece I looked closer and could see where the individual pieces had been applied. (some slightly out out of position which shows the separate pieces)
Talk about touchy..........Please send me a free plaid insert as compensation 😉

Your website shows this as a six piece set? Is it not a five piece??
