    Default New badges.... size help needed

    Looking to replace the centre badges on my standard 2.2sri 05 alloys.
    i've measured 64mm in diameter?
    If thats right are there any decent irmshcer replacements?
    Also that goes for the steering wheel badge,any good replacements there?

    And one more thing,the lacquer is coming off in small patches on two of the wheels.. Are they covered by warranty?

    Your assistance please chaps...

    one member has had their wheels replaced under warranty with a laquer issue..they got the wheels FOC.I'll rack my brains for a name..

    IIRC, the steering wheel badge is part of the airbag pod..so removal isn't much of an option..you'd have to change the airbag..

    For Irmscher bits, try www.irmscher-bits.com , they're one of the approved traders

    No mate, The only VX badges left on my mota are the wheels. Looked at Irmy centres but was told by riggs of Irmy bits that I can't use em. so I'm stuck with the griffins for now.
