Default Ea\se of fitting badge on front grille

I think the car was delivered without the W12 badges, but I want to put them back on.
The stick-on ones are fine, but what about the badge in the front grille - how easy its that to fit? (worth considering glue??? )

[EDIT] sorry for the typo mistake in the subject line, the silly forum won't let me edit it.

Parts wise, both should still be available from Audi themselves. The badge itself is part number 4H0853736A, but you also need two small clips, part number 8L0807180.

Check out the following PDF from page 336 on fitting the front badge, and page 334 for the locations of the side and rear badges:

That's fantastic thankyou very much!! Looks like an easy job then. I had imagined having to disassemble the entire front-end to get at fiddly clips behind there lol.

That PDF is gold too. I was looking for something like that, I found an online version but this is great. I need to change the external heated mirror glass too and just a couple of pages up it's right there!!

Thanks again.

It's also worth checking out the following thread which has a lot of associated PDFs for the D4:

Has anyone fitted the clips on the front grille? Looking at mine I think it's going to be impossible to get behind there to install the clips...

Didn't realise there was a mesh behind the main grille. The instructions don't mention it, but I would think that they could be fitted from the front, so long as you don't drop them.

I'm not so sure, looks like I need to get behind there. I wonder how easy it is to get the grill off....

Page 267 of the above mentioned PDF has an exploded diagram of how it was put together and how to remove it. I don't see any mention of the mesh though.

Even by Audi standards, I don't think they require a full disassembly to fit a badge.
