Nice, I must admit that after 30+ year collecting I’m not very knowledgeable on Kraftfahrer gear. I know it when I see if but don’t know how to authenticate.

it looks genuine 

Thanks CCJ. Here's a few other interesting Kraftfahrer items in my collection: enlisted straps with two different styles of K and a 84/98aA marked to the Bayerische Ersatz-Kraftwagenkollone 2. If anyone has any Kraftfahrer items feel free to add them to the thread.

Great photos Andy! I've got lots of Kraftfahrer photos, but have never seen the sports car style badge until now. There's a member of the WWI German Soldier facebook page that has a WWI souvenir belt with that identical badge on it, I've asked him to add a photo of it here. That style looks like a staff car so maybe for drivers for regimental staff? Or maybe just private purchase?
