Also fitted the repainted grill. Can’t decide what badge if any to fit, it’s a 2000 car with a 2500S engine - anyone have opinions?
Later cars with the plastic grille had the option of '2500', '2000 TC', 2500 TC, or '2500S' as it was an adhesive backed stick on 'foil'.
The early cars with the metal grill only had the option of the metal badges with '2000', '2500' (only for export models to Australia) or '2500 Injection'.
They aren't interchangeable unfortunately.
As you have the black painted PI style metal grill (which I think look far superior to the alloy look of the 2000) and a 2500 engine, I would try to go for the metal 2500 badge (630314), but I they are difficult to find - maybe worth checking Ebay Australia?
I will check if I have one but I very much doubt it.
But it's personal choice ultimately Chris!
