Hi there,

I need a new vw them for my 1971 T2a.
Sadly I could not find one in my country so I need to order it from the US.
I found the following two items now
http://www.jbugs.com/product/311853687.html
http://www.jbugs.com/product/211-601B.html

Anyone experience with these? How is the quality?
Should be the right one for my bus, right?

Thanks for your help!

Quality of the front "VW" one is excellent.
I didn't like the rear "VOLKSWAGEN" one as it is brushed aluminum and not smooth and doesn't look right. I wound up using a good used one carefully prepped and sprayed with "chrome spray paint"... it actually looks authentic compared to the brushed one.

The 1500 'Notchback' Type 3 sedan uses the same "VOLKSWAGEN" badge on the rear lid on '63-5 cars. Maybe Mario Steinhausen at Type 3 Headquarters in Germany has one. The 1500 Sedan version only- not the Variant or Type 34 as they are smaller.

Thanks for the info regarding the front emblem and the tip with the type 3 headquarter. But they don't have one either.
That's very strange that nobody has this part in Europe right now...

Welcome to the strange new world of VW ownership, unfortunately.

If you need it, either nobody has it OR they do but it's just stupid crazy money. Rolling Eyes

the stainless steel front emblems are really a crap. Looks like a cake melting in the sun.
