flip badge boot release options please?

Recommended Posts

I'm interested in doing the mk5 ect. Boot badge retrofit.

does anyone know what sizeD diameter badges are available?

What options of fitment is there?

I know you can cut and shut a mk5 badge with a square extra surround from the mk5 boot. I'm interested into how casperGTi did his as it looks like he made the hole to fit but I'm interested how people have kept them water tight and muting on the inside.

Also how many people have wired the central locking in and is it controlled on a separate button?

Any help is welcome. Pictures appreciated too.

Thanks

If the lock mechanism is stock surely it already opens on CO, I could tell you a good way of wiring in a switched boot popper though.

The way I have it on mine is using a relay and a boot popper.

Works a treat

Rather have it as functional as possible if I'm honest.

Someone suggested wiring it to the ignition live so it is possible to open when live

Also got suggested that the mk6 badge is better looking.

I don't fancy having th mk5 hump that leads up to it, I'd rather have the recessof the polo

I have used the polo 6r one on mine - looks a lot fresher than the mk5.

Mine is fully functional using the relay and popper. Locks using the Central locking button as before
