You might be saving money up front with the fakes, but they don't last, so you'll be buying another set in a year. The proper emblems are protected from UV light. The fakes aren't, so they look just fine up front, but fade, yellow, crack and haze with age. So you'll spend more in the long run replacing them, and give the counterfeit operations more business, so in the future they can pass off more junk as they start to perfect their fake packaging and get more ballsy.

The problem I have with these, even though I don't even like the red emblems is that they are not reproductions, they are FAKE and trying to be passed off as the real thing, even going as far as faking the "Honda Genuine" packaging! They do that because there is a TON of profit in there for the counterfeiters. The Chinese are getting super good at counterfeiting stuff, they're pretty corrupt over there, so they have access to a lot of machinery to help get this stuff done. Check out some of the rip off iPhones some day, or the fake Apple stores (Yes, a WHOLE STORE! FILLED with rip offs, down to the boxes and bags!). These guys are GOOD, they find things in demand, copy it using the cheapest materials, and make a TON of money doing it.

These emblems would be totally fine by me if they where sold as reproductions, and cost $10 or $20, but that's not what they're doing. It's the morality of it (or lack of) that gets to me.

Sh*t, immagine if they start moving on to actual parts?? I sure don't want to be duped when buying replacement sensors and whatnot!
