Help Changing boot/bonnet badge

Hi, dont know if this is the right place to put this but anyway, im looking to change the bonnet/ grille alfa romeo badge on my 147 as its got quite badly damaged in a garage door incident i have looked at the boot badge & that is marked and started to fade aswell so im going to get this changed at the same time but i have seen some black & silver ones somewhere before but i cant remember where. Does anyone here know where i can get them or know anyone who has got this style of badge?

Am after replacing my boot badge as it is very faded. It has no laquer on as I can rub away the colour. Can you replace the badge by itself or is it part of the lock component? BTW it's a 166.

you have to take the boot locking system out to change it apparently because its the twist around 1 on mine not sure about the 166

I changed mine this morning. Been meaning to do it for a while. When it came to putting it all back together, I snipped a little bit off the spring inside. Made it much easier to get the cir-clip back on. Did it all by myself as well. Managed not to drop anything into the "safety net" either. Now the back one matches the front one, which I did the other week. Happy days..
