Them are cool badges! Who issued them .org badges back in the day?

The second badge is an iItalian one. That isn't related to this org, not?

Theres a lot of politics around the 'org' badge, and we probably shouldn't scratch it open again here.  There were issued through this group about 10 years ago.

The second badge shown was never affiliated with the org.

have to disagree re the grill badge, they were made by the org in 2007/8 i bought 3 at the time i had 1 on my first 116 which i sold in 2010, i have one on my current car and this spare that i found in the shed a little worse for ware.

at the time it was a debate that was heated lots of opinions,  but some members put in a lot of work designing and making the badges

sorry for hijacking the thread, those penta's look great any car i have seen them on it gives it a more muscular stance

all the best
