I bought my Subaru/BRZ ones from Alibaba for like 5 bucks from China. They've been on my car for almost 3 years now without any issues. No chipping, no paint fade, etc. Matte black.

No reason to buy the official OEM ones for 10x or more, and I'm usually an OEM person

Now, try finding bronze ones that are actually in stock someplace.
You ever find these bronze ones?

Why not just buy a black one and paint it yourself? Badges are so small itd be hard for anyone to not produce a decent looking outcome

Could just paint the ones on it but it wont look as good as the ones that are actually bronze coloured material. Not like I am in a rush since I will have the car a while.

Just ordered some Grazio & Co emblems. I tried some black ones made by a US vendor, it was injection molded plastic, looked very cheap so I sent them back.
