    I don't think any of the badges leave the factory black. All the "black OEM" badges I've seen for sale are OEM chrome badges redone in black after they have left the factory, so the quality of the final product is subject to non-Audi factory workmanship. Even the so called Audi "Black Editions" of various models come with chrome finish emblems. Or is there now an Audi part number for black badges?

    I also checked with my Audi Dealer and they confirmed that Audi did just release the OEM black emblems (which LD-OEM Parts sells). He is definitely selling them cheaper than any Audi Dealer here can offer them for.

    At the price of a complete set at +-$300 (based on exchange rate) and the "other vendor" here selling the aftermarket at $250 (where you can get them for sooo much lower on ebay), its a no brainer to buy the OEM set.

    V10, R8 and rear emblem (rings) are the same on gen.1 and gen.2, so you can install those on gen.1. Front rings are different on gen.2, but not sure if size or shape.

    So Original Audi Emblems which we are selling, can be installed on gen.1 except front ring emblem.

    We have gen.1 front hood here and we can compare gen.2 front emblem and see what is the difference.

    Maybe rear RS5 2019 emblem is same shape and size as gen.1 hood emblem... maybe they share same emblems with new Q2/Q3/A6/A7 which also have black emblems as option...

    My dealer had them on show in the parts dept for several cars.
    He said he had R8, but server was down so he coldly confirm in stock
    Not sure if he meant only 2016 Gen2 cars though

    R8 gen.1 front emblem is little smaller than R8 gen.2. Shape is the same, so you can use gen.2 emblem kit on gen.1 if you don't have an issue with little bigger front emblem.

    We also order Original Black rear emblems from NEW Q3, A6 and A7 and we will compare them with front R8 embem. I think Q3 emblem might be the same as R8 front. Will update that thread next week when I get emblems.

    Top emblem gen.2, bottom emblem gen.1
