Hi There!

New to the forum.

I have a question regarding the red emblems on the 06-07 sedan. There just is nobody who sells them for this car. I have seen them on other sedans in the forums and maybe somebody would know where I could locate some?

Thank you

You're just not looking/searching correct ... for example, on Ebay - do a search for "red Honda" or "red JDM Honda emblem" , either of those should produce enough results to take you an hour to look at them all. Just make sure to measure your emblems in mm so you order the correct ones.

FWIW - a front JDM emblem for a 06-11 Civic Si COUPE is a direct fit / exact same emblem size for the front of our car.

I have checked ebay and there are no emblems that specify fitment for the Accord. so, do I just need to measure them and purchase by measurement? They are quite expensive, so I would hate to screw up the measurements

The thing with Ebay you see, is that the exact same items are not on the site EVERY single time you visit ... but, be patient and what you're looking for will eventually re-appear if you didn't jump on ordering it the first time.

IMO - from twenty/ten/five feet away can others see the difference between the $45~$90 OEM and the $20 chinese knock off ?

Specific mention for front;

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Honda-JDM-R...Parts_Accessories&hash=item2a314f9cc2&vxp=mtr

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Red-Honda-J...Parts_Accessories&hash=item4aca3c83ef&vxp=mtr

And for the rear - order off measurement because once you take off the OEM "H" there's just two little holes left on the trunk that get covered by the red badge anyway, so if your off 4mm total it's not a big deal. However, if you order one WAY over sized, it looks a bit silly ; but then again, only sticks out to someone who knows it looks wrong.

I am not sure that those will fit. They specify fitment for the Civic coupe.
One of the greatest things about owning a Honda, is the often times very deep parts bin.

Example, our 06-07 sedan will accept - an intake manifold from an 04-08 Acura TSX (if K24), front and rear sway bars off certain Acura TL's and TL-S's, and just as I mentioned above the JDM H emblem off an 06-11 CIVIC SI COUPE (direct fit, meaning the pegs are even in the EXACT proper location for an EXACT OEM fit)

If you really need to, measure your front emblem and then look at the dimensions of the JDM 06-11 Civic Si coupe red emblem ...

Good point. That would be doing myself a big favor. Thanks.
