We know that Audi and Volkswagen share the same mother, but we still can’t find any reason why someone would badge a 2000 Audi TT with
Volkswagen logos. He could’ve just gotten a Volkswagen Golf if that’s all he wanted to do. After all, the Golf – as well as the Jetta, the Beetle, the Seat Leon, and the Skoda Octavia – shares the same platform, engine, and mechanics with the TT so he could’ve just spared himself and the ensuing public reaction a lot of trouble.

But this guy, who by the way is selling his re-badged TT on eBay, doesn’t see a problem with that. Heck, he even took his VW logo fascination past the TT’s exterior by adding some emblems on the car’s seats too.

His justification: "I just added Volkswagen logos around to make it look different, since they are the same company." Ok, sure. That explains it a great deal, except that the scent of irony is a tad too intoxicating.

In any event, if you want to bid for this - and we can probably say this with full certainty - rather ’special’ one-off TT, the auction’s currently on-going on eBay.

well IMO doing that is just fine, just to look different from others, but for me changing the badge of the Audi is like down grading the TT.
