K5ING,

I depends on the size of your emblems. In the back of my Mk3, I pulled the factory badge off and glued the mounting ring in place. Actually, just remembered, the ring is a tad too large for the trunk recess. So I glued magnets to the back to space the badge away from the base metal. I put GOOP adhesive among the magnets to secure the badge so it wouldn't fall off when I hit a bump. These badges are actually designed to mount to the grille slats instead of in place of the emblem. BUT, they can cover up the emblem. I have some measurements in THIS POST.

I posted this photo in another thread last week, when my 2003 Golf celebrated its 400,000th mile.



It is running better than ever, but I need to rebuild the original front axles and replace the Chinese-made ones currently in place. The Chinese axles resonate at 3800 rpm and limit my top speed to around 105-110 mph.

Yeah! Pictures AND stories. Favorite moments. Favorite rides. Issues that arose during those 400k. Et cetera! Saying that you have arrived at this threshold is fine, but hearing more details really makes the thread.

Some of us post that already, it's just not consolidated into one location.

If you have a TDI with 400k+ (but less than 500k) miles on it this is the thread to say so. The other threads are more general in nature. These threads are specific:
