    I searched all over the place, even went to the dealership to see if they had one with no luck. Just ended up painting mine. Came out great, 6 bucks for a can of spray paint.

    thanks. I thought about that, but I can just repaint or get a new emblem.

    just snaps in. Pop it out from the inside of the hood. Its super easy and fast. Just a few clips holding it in. I just popped it out, wiped it down with alcohol and sprayed on 3 coats of Tamiya black spray paint over a few hour period. Popped it back in the next day. The Tamiya paint is great, its the stuff they use for RC cars and models. Got it at a hobby shop, supposed to be pretty durable.

    If your worried about fading just prep it properly. Sand, adhesion promoter, primer, black gloss (or matte), clear coat.

    That's the beauty about fading paint; You can sand and paint it again within a matter of a few minutes. :cool:
