Group buy/pre-order: SE emblems for Mk3 ST grille



As some may know, the Mk3 ST grille is designed to have an emblem fitted. This is great for STs but for those that swap the ST bumper to another model there is a problem. The only options were to either keep the incorrect ST emblem or remove it and leave a blank space showing.

I recently fitted an ST bumper to my car. As a temporary measure I made up a replacement emblem to show the proper trim level and was very happy with how it turned out. Others have shown interest so I am now currently working on a more OEM-looking piece to replace this. I have found a company that will 3D print some emblems but at the very least about 8 pieces will need to be ordered before the costs become reasonable for each unit.

They would be styled after the ST emblem but read SE instead. The design is more or less what is shown above, just updated slightly. Once printed I'd paint them and then send them out to buyers.

The finished product would be a 3D emblem just like the original ST piece, which features an 'E' in place of the 'T'. It would fit in place of the original and both sizes can be accounted for for those what want a matching set. There would be a smaller emblem for the grille and larger emblem for the rear of the car, just like an ST.

OEM grille emblems cost just over $50 each (Canadian) and I would be able to get these made and finished for others, for $65 each (small or large). If one wants a pair of emblems (one small for the front and one large for the rear) the price would be $115.

They would be printed by another company but I am handling the pre-order and final production through my blog, ThreeTwenty.

I will do, thank you! With the time that will be needed for production of these I'm hoping enough orders can be made fairly soon, so that we can get these before summer is over.

Yup!

These will be going into production (hopefully) soon but you can put your name down now and reserve some for yourself.
