Sure it looks quite disproportionate at first, but trust me, in the end it doesn't look that bad at all.

my buddy's dad gave me a wolfsburg badge similar to the picture.

i have it hanged in the rear mirror of my Volvo now, to remind me that my swedish hunk of steel has a diesel-powered straight-six german heart

I drilled two holes in my shed door, and set [friction fit] a Vanagon front badge on it.
