VW Golf GTI 16V Badges - Where are they located?

The markings for the  16V version of the VW Golf Mk2 are quite subtle and there are only a few places where it is obvious as the car otherwise looks identical to an 8V to the eye.

There are 3 different red 16V badges around the car - on the tailgate next to GTI logo, on the front grill and inside the car on the glovebox door.

When I bought my Golf GTI I soon realised one of the badges was missing - interestingly this wasn't the obvious ones from outside that could have been stolen by anyone walking past the car - but the 16V badge that is meant to be on the glovebox was no longer there.

I was lucky to find someone breaking a 1990 16V that had the badge intact and after a small payment including postage was able to restore the glovebox back to its original condition.
