Hi All,

I love the look of the tuscani badges, and thinking of changing my 'H' badges for a 'T' badge. (I'll be keeping my existing badges so I can change back if I feel like it). Pipe down over there, you purists ;)

Does anyone know if the steering wheel badge eBay item: 260544318682 will cover the holes left by the 'H' badge on my F2?

If not, I guess I'd have to get the V6 Engine cover badge?

(I knew it wouldnt stay standard for long!!)

No, it won't - I had one on our gen1 steering wheel and it's only just bigger than the logo on the wheel.

Furthermore, the round Tuscani badges are too big for the curvature of the gen1 bonnet. They have a noticable gap between the metal and the badge, though I suppose you may be able to judiciously shave the badge back to fit. They do not fit the boot at all, too big and overhang the boot lip. Best place I found for mine was on the C-pillars, then some git nicked 'em...

The ones above don't come as a pair, you'll need to order 2 of them.
They're engine plate badges for the V6.
That steering wheel one you mentioned will fit perfectly onto the H-badge on the HT lead cover though, and can be used as external badging, but its smaller.

yep the back one fitted great and the front one was a little big but no one noticed unless I pointed it out (it was that minor)
