    £22 seems a bit excessive for the rear S badge but may have to bite the bullet on this if i cant find it anywhere cheaper.

    Oh and the infotainment system is working again but will see how we go tomorrow as tonight is meant to be a another frosty one
    Welcome aboard

    Go for either badge, not many would know the difference anyway

    For a MY 2011 neither of those badges are correct. They are both face-lift badges.
    The rear S badge on a 2011 has no colour and no background. There was no front badge.
    Go with whatever floats your boat, unless your a badge fanatical anorak...

    If it's a face-lift and built in 2011 it's regarded as MY2012. Then the coloured badge is correct. Just enjoy, stick whatever badges you like on it. (just be prepared for the backlash from the Badge Police )

    I've bought a grill badge with a fitting/fixing rear plate (proper job), will I need to take the front bumper off to fit it? if so, can someone with an original grill badge guide me to the "exact" location of the original fitment of the badge on the grill mesh i.e. - bottom right corner 3 holes up and 5 holes in + pic? please

    If you look at the early posts in this thread I think most have suggested sticking it on as it is easier, as you suggest it would probably be bumper off otherwise. I would suggest looking at a few dealer models etc to get an idea, I'm sure it's not an exact science.

    A grille hole filled with clear silicon is all you'd ever need.
    It won't move unless you decide to pull it off and then the silicon pulls out of the grille pretty easily- just comes out in a block.

    I had reason to pull mine off recently because a rock must have hit it and the green enamel fell out. So a repaint.
    All done in 15 minutes. Damned if I'd be pulling the front end off the car for that, with the possibility of scratching parts when you're doing it.

    Agreed (getting to be a habit lately!), with one difference - I prefer to use black rather than clear on a black grille like on my XFR.
    I stuck an R badge on years ago using black silicone RTV windscreen sealant, and it never budged a micron.

    Just in case you haven't already discovered the answer to this one. Under adverse conditions, low battery, extreme essential demands on the electrical system, for example, the car shuts down non essential devices such as seat heaters, infotainment etc. When the battery is sufficiently recharged, and the system can support everything, they will work again.

    Bottom right quadrant of the grille, just place it where you prefer it

    I was thinking of upgrading the xenon bulbs at the same time, so it would kill 2 birds........etc. Having come from adaptive lights on a Mercedes, the Jag ones are wanting!
    I was hoping to make the badges look totally OE stylee
