Default Replacement Hood and Trunk Emblems??

I have to say this group is a wealth of information about New Beetles! I find myself looking through the different sections every free moment I get! I was worried that buying my 03 Beetle that I might have problems but if I do, I know I am not alone and have a great resource for help.
Anyway, I need to replace my hood and trunk emblems. They are faded and have no color to them anymore. Almost plain silver. I have looked on E-Bay and they have the black/silver and also white/blue. Which is the correct color for my 2003 Beetle? I have not seen hardly any in pictures with the blue/white emblems but I do like that color better than the silver/black.
Thanks!

The blue/white are European. The silver/black are the ones that came on NBs for the US from the factory. You can pick up the euro emblems but they are usually a bit pricey.
