If you are creative enough you can do it by removing the logo and buying black paint. I don't know if it is just me who notice that a lot of car enthusiast nowadays are not a fan of chrome anymore.

You're absolutely right. I don't know why they keep putting chrome on cars, especially on "luxury" trims. I like the blacked out version or simple de-badged. I guess it still appeals to certain masses.

Can buy them off ebay easily, I bought mine from there and they look great and have held up no issue.

Can also get black 86 badge kits that include the logos, side chrome 86 pieces and rear 86 badging

Full 86 glossblack set- https://www.ebay.com/itm/Set-Gloss-B...UAAOSwyhNdB9PT

full 86 matteblack set- https://www.ebay.com/itm/Set-Matte-B...AAAOSwd3NdB9K6

They look like the same badging manufacturer as the ones I bought locally, and the moulding/ paint is good just know it's obviously plastic so won't have the same weight as the OEM badging, not like anyone goes out of their way to touch the badges anyway

True, he did say FRS that went over my head...

And yea i agree its def expensive, but personally id just get OEM badges and pay the cost... to each their own. Also they have other badges on ftspeed as well i was just giving him a place to start

Amazon has several shade of black to choose from.
Now, try finding bronze ones that are actually in stock someplace.

First order and no issues whatsoever. Was recommended by another owner as mine started to peel after trying to paint them myself.
Order placed over a weekend, shipping number supplied on the monday and arrived yesterday, so just over a week. You even get a free air freshener

Plastidip is another solution. This will allow you to go back to stock look easily any time you want.
