Stolen badges

Some tosser has nicked the badges off my car. I've seen some on E-bay that vary in price from £3.50 to £150. Any advice on where I can get replacements (other than main dealer) for a price that I won't need a second mortgage for.

Main stealer prices at the going rate for a genuine badge. Check eBay but only search using part numbers.

Sad to hear, but I believe Paul (PWPro) has a drawer full of badges, I'm sure he'll be able to help

Did they get them off without damaging the paint? Pretty impressive for a thief if so! I took mine off as I think the rear looks cleaner without them and is easier to keep clean, but I know other people on here think differently...

P.S. It happened in Spain somewhere between Cangas de Onis and Cangas del Narcea. Great area but just goes to show they got twats here too or as 1 sympathetic lad at a petrol station described them. Puta

there seems to be plenty of badges on yahoo japan at much more sensible prices

Thanks for the tip(s) guys. Both this and the Japanese sight look encouraging. I'll contact Carbon Goodies when I get home.

I have to say that the GTR seems to be really admired and liked here in Spain. Just wish those guys didn't admire it so much they felt they had to take the badges.
