That’s spot on, HP.

This one is too, I can tell just by looking at it visually if it’s factory fit original badge placement.

The PF boot you found is interesting but they’d need to pull the badges off when painting silver I imagine. Hopefully someone will get us the exact dimensions.

Thank You.
As a matter of interest, when I bought my S8 from the second owner of the vehicle, he told me that the car originally came without the rings on the boot. Mine is Jaspis Green 1998 example.

I have found one other example on the internet, also Jaspis Green, which does not have the rings on the rear.

There is a picture of my ringless boot in the link to images in this post:
http://forum.a8parts.co.uk/showpost....65&postcount=1

I wonder if the no rings on the boot thing is rare or just a debadging?

It was an option when new. You could pay the dealer some money to not stick the badges on

You can factory order to delete the engine / model....

Rings however, always fitted at the factory....

I have no idea what the fascination is with people removing them.... I understand not wanting a Toyota to look like a toyota, but why folks would want to pretend they don't have a Audi.....

That image seems to be AWOL, MJ...……

Anyway looking at the pictures, the curve of the boot lid, and the subtle curve of the badge itself to fit the boot (look at one from above) I'm using the width (including chrome border) of the red parallelogram as a baseline and the bottom left corner as the datum point.

I reckon it's about 1.5" (38mm) wide. The corner is about 50% of that (3/4", 19mm) in from the side and about 65% of that (1", 25mm) up from the bottom.
The gap between the two halves is trickier to estimate, but probably only about 1/8" or 3mm.

My 5mm separation is clearly too much and now I know the whole thing must come off! But how to refix it, is there a recommended double-sided tape to use or will any reasonable type do? I have some very thin transparent tape that should do the job, it has no "padding" in it unlike numberplate or mirror fixing pads.

PS: As a footnote, my current S8 came to me with both an S8 and 4.2 badge on the rear! I hadn't noticed the issue but was soon "told off" by the good people here.
The 4.2 badge came off PDQ, but I have to say that no-one noticed my S8 badge was in the wrong place - call yourself experts?
This does make me wonder if the first owner had ordered it "de-badged" and a subsequent one had the badges fitted, doubly-incorrectly, as he wanted to show off his S8? There's no sign of any accident damage or repair and I'm pretty sure the boot lid is original, not least because of the rotting grommets!

Odd, it worked for me, but I've attached it now.

I'll be out at the workshop in a bit so I'll get some close-up pics with a ruler for scale

I decided to buy a new badge anyway and will keep the original (once removed) as "backup".
(You can see the curved back on this one designed to fit near the boot edge, it's also listed as being Size: 105*37 mm which may help with spacing)
