Default TDI Badging

Hi,

I may buy my son's 2012 Toureg TDI Sport with 117k miles. There are badges on the front fenders between the fenderwell lips and the doors. He doesn't know what they signify. The badge is a blue square with a chrome "R" on the right edge of it. Over the blue field there is what appears to be a squiggly logo. Does anyone know what they signify. To my knowledge R-Line wasn't offered until the 2014 model year but I'm relatively new to the TDI. I had a couple of Mercedes turbo diesels way back when with mechanical fuel injectors - a far cry from todays clean diesels. My son loves the 3.0 diesel and he over maintains his almost to a fault. Its a beauty and runs like a watch.

Thanks for listening. I'm honored to be accepted on your forum.

if he bought it used, the previous owner may have added the vinyls to it. and i believe the r-lines have red stitched steering wheels, different seats and the r badge front back and sides. Could be wrong, just my take. im looking to add all the gtd logos to my jsw
