5x130 aftermarket rotors (pretty much all) are these showed in my thread, sold as blank or already drilled 5x130, and to me are pretty dangerous to be used with press-in stud because the lack of mate ...

I can't get a super clear pic of the badge on Google, but Simca looks like a real possibility.

I don't think so. Of course, like the Type 3, they may have changed the badge style.

Ok, judging by the response it looks like I will go for new rotors. Am I right in say beetle 1967 -1979 rotors will bolt straight onto my 1968 Squareback?

Isn't that a FIAT badge?

I don't think so... Rolling Eyes
