aftermarket e46 touring/wagon badges?
 
Hi, was wondering if anyone out there can help me, recently bought a 2000 e46 touring (which i believe is known a an e46 wagon in the US). As it is an older model I have started by changing the front corner indicators to crystal clear from orange and the orange side repeaters to clear led's. I have also upgraded the tail lights to the facelift red and white ones from orange and changed the front kidney grills to the black sports ones. Tommorow I am picking up a nice set of 18" rims for it so its starting to take shape. The problem Iam having is this. on my last e46 i fitted the carbon/black bonnet and boot badges and had matching caps on the wheels which i think really set the car off well, the thing is i have been searching for 4 weeks now but I cant find any that say they are compatible for the tourings boot (iam guessing it is a different shape from the saloon and the cab) does anyone know if they exist, or if there is any way the normal ones can be doctored to fit? i really want to fit some but its all or nothing if i cant find one that will fit the tail end!?? any help gratefully recieved. :bawling:

khoalty.com


they sell a set of black/white and carbon fiber roundels.

yes unfortunately the roundels we stock will not fit the touring's bootlid...

Dunno if khoalty has them or not.

will take a few pics after i fit the wheels tomorrow so hopefully put a couple on soon ;-)

yeah i checked out the khoalty website but doesn't specify if it fits the touring so might drop them an email....watch this space!

just had a reply from khoalty and sadly as i suspected they dont do roundels to fit the touring, iam a bit gutted as its looking like they may not exist, guess the man upstairs thinks no one would mod a family wagon :-( if anyone out there has any other ideas it would be greatly appreciated....?

I've been looking for the same thing for ages, but it really seems there's no one even making this type of roundel.
There's nothing on eBay (I've sent tons of questions to different sellers, but no luck.
I managed to get a dealer in the UK to contact his manufacturer, asking them about the availability/plans of this product.
So far, there's been no answer.

Any update? Been looking for the same thing. I think I am going to cut some black vinyl to cover the blue pieces.

Any update on the trunk roundel for the touring ladies?

Dammit.

I am still looking, I found one seller at eBay, but the part is out of stock.

Have anybody know where to buy them from? :)

From the photo it looks like these are right for the touring if you are looking for black and white carbon ones:

I am looking for non-carbon black and white... can't seem to find it though. Anyone seen them anywhere?

Mod a stock one
 
Im buying a stock one on EBay. Then I will buy an all black badge of the same diameter, and see if I can mate the two.
The problem as you know is the higher base for the hatch of the Touring.
It will take a few weeks, I will post my attempt once I get going.

There is a guy on eBay with 3 stock hatch badges (boot badges) left at $22 U$D each.
