advice on badge replacement

Need some advice/suggestions.

The front MG badge is starting to look tatty, the laquer is coming of, and needs replacing.

What i would like is advice on what colour badges to replace it with, and wheres the best place to get them from ?

i know several people have done this so look forward to responses.

thanks in advance

Ive tried both the stickers and the full metal badges and i have to say that the stickers creased when put on . I put on a black and blue metal one on my trophy blue and it looks awesone, just got to replace the back one now. It was about 8 on e bay.

I'm looking at these on ebay.

No idea on quality, but look ok for the money.

Cheers

For the ZS I've bought new genuine replacments from eBay and from Brown and Gammons at Stoneleigh and will fit them once I've been remapped

For the ZR we got replacment stickers in blue and black from eBay.

tried a few, bought metal yellow and black with enamel, they where okay, put them on the zr in the end but noticed recently the badges have gone all clouded so look fairly bad, the genuine badges seem fairly poor, dont think they have enough laquer and it lifts and peels too easy, ive recently bought new inserts for 2 of my cars, they are exactly the same as the originals and just stick in the centre, they seem to be okay so far, dont know if they are genuine mg or not but literally no difference between them so unsure of how they will last, time will tell i guess
