Also interesting, this aftermarket part site offers 8 different sizes of light-up emblems due to size variation from front/rear and country. - Crystal LED Badge Logo Emblem Light Lamp
I had a BAD experience with one of those aftermarket LED rear badges. Mine shorted internally and resulted in the car freaking out with tons of error messages (brakes, cruise control, etc). I disconnected it and all is again well. Your mileage may vary. I was good until my Insight got rained on a few times.

The Japan Honda site offers OEM black chrome "H" and "Insight" emblems for sale, and are probably available in the JDM market. It looks kind of cool, and it's cool that they're OEM. - Honda|Honda Access|インサイト|エクステリア|ブラックエンブレム

08F20-TXM-100 - Includes front and rear H marks and Insight emblem.
The black H and Insight emblem are now available in the US.

@blackheart Should've gone with a blue H instead of red since it's a hybrid.
Before I even seriously thought about buying my first Honda a co worker told me about the Honda Insight so I googled it and came across this awesome car...that turned out not to be real :LOL::
5750

I made it my goal to re-create this render tho, and I would like to think I am getting close. Next monday the front grille parts that are chrome will be wrapped black. Also working on deleting the front part of my grille and adding the type r style mesh grille. Will have a type R wing eventually mounted as well. Still undecided on adding the NSX wheels, mainly due to cost lol. As it stands:
5751


I dont plan on putting any Type R badging on it though since its not a real one.

So I’m thinking about buying 2 of the 21 Accord Hybrid blueish “H” emblems and putting them on my Insight.. I just have to make sure they fit first, especially the front.

what is weird is that I called 2 dealers and one quoted me $3x.xx and another $12x.xx.

huge difference and I’m wondering if the cheaper one was an error from the parts dept.

anybody else thinking about doing this?

here is a pic I got my from Autotrader.. not the best pic but best I could find.

I'm thinking about dropping $75 on this though... :surprise:

So... I got these Raymax wheel caps for Christmas for my 2020 Touring. And they do not fit. Did you get them working?
There is a thing sticking out from the axle that prevents them from fitting (the light-up wheel caps are almost an inch thick)

I didn't buy them because I couldn't get a response from the store if they fit.

Raymax doesn't come off as all that dependable to deal with. They also seem to selectively answer questions in their e-mail based on whether they find it of interest to them or not. While I did get what I ordered form them and the product did work, I never got an answer to a follow up question I sent asking how water proof the symbols might be.

There are a lot to choose from on eBay and Amazon, but not all are authentic so it depends on your price point and preference.

For "authentic" emblems, look for ones that are called JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) or USDM (US Domestic Market) or OEM (from Type-R)... not ones that are called "JDM style" or other description. The logos/size from the GenX Civic (2016+) should fit the Insight emblem area. These are the part numbers from the Type-R:
Type-R OEM Front emblem = 75700-TGH-A01​
Type-R OEM Rear emblem = 75701-TGH-A01​

Here are a few "authentic" options you could look into; you can also use the part numbers above to check online OEM dealer part stores:
Any idea where to obtain these for the 2020? I'm finding a lot of mixed information on the interwebz regarding what badge size I will need. Has anyone made the leap to red? and if yes.... Where can I find?

Welcome to the forum. So far in this thread, @blackheart has installed the red Civic Type-R rear emblem as the Insight's front emblem. (The Type R front emblem is larger than the Insight front emblem.)

If you're into darker emblems, @andrew28 mentioned there are black ones that Honda directly sells for the (Japanese) Insight and are now available for order in the US. All global Insights are produced in Indiana, and 2019-2021 Insights should have the same front emblem design spec.

Decided after seeing all of the ways for this to go wrong, and the mixed size options. Going to do a blue reflective metallic vinyl backing and a chromed black emblem. I will post pics when done.

Rear is an easy 98X80mm the front is a little weirder but I ended up with a 113X92mm emblem which works nicely for the front
