Default Badge change?

So after picking up my car last week, I noticed that on the rear there is the obligatory Q7 badge on the left side, but only the Quattro badge on the right. There is no TSFI badge, let alone a 3.0T badge. Nothing:

Is this how it's supposed to be now? I kinda like it, but just wondering if something was accidentally omitted...

I recall a thread a while back saying they've changed this.

I thought they changed it from 3.0T to 55 TSFI or something like that.

They removed for the 2019 model year.

My 19 Q7 doesn't even have the quattro badging on the back. I got mine in April but it was built in 12/18.

I can see some of the more recent 19's prestige trim levels that arrived at my dealer have the quattro badging in the one corner. Other prestige level ones like mine that had been on their lot when I was buying do not have the quattro badge in back either. I actually like the badging and just having a Q7 and nothing else on the back makes it seem very bland. Not sure why there is no consistency within a model year. So I would have to assume it may just vary based on build time and not trim level. I just wanted to focus on apples to apples since I know which ones just arrived. I was considering waiting on one of the vehicles that had not arrived yet but chose from the lot.

So in other words, it's basically a mixed bag. I was so "used to" seeing the 3.0T badge that once I saw it missing it looked like something was wrong. Being that the quattro badge is so thin, it does seem like something is missing still. Of course, in the grand scheme of things, it doesn't matter that much to me, and I wouldn't debadge anything else. I wouldn't add a 3.0T badge either.

My 2019 Audi Q7 Technik purchased in Vancouver BC in April 2019 ONLY has a Q7 badge on the left side. On the right side, it does not have a 55 nor a 3.0T nor a Quattro on right side. I actually liked it this way, cleaner look.

Early 2019 builds only had Q7 on the left. Part way through the model year they added the quattro badge on the right.

So I figured that probably was the case (or wondered if there was a badging shortage). No matter the reason, I personally find that a little sloppy due to the inconsistency. I feel they should badge consistently within a model year and then change badging on model years if they want to change.

Like I said just having a Q7 looks bland. For those that got at least the quattro then I felt that sort of helps. I would have preferred more badging. All is what it is though.

Seems like there was never any 55 TFSI badging change across the range? I was wondering about this, and figured the badging would not fit on the current Q7's tailgate, the 55 TFSI would be too long, run into the character lines.
