I agree with the shave,
I see they are "type R" emblems, if youre looking for the type R look, generally the emblems were red, on white cars, so I'd go with that just for a little authenticity, even though I don't know of a type R lude, could be wrong.

i ended up painting my stock badges gloss black and it gives the car alot more personality, alot of you were right, black was the way to go,
my engine needs attention due to running rich and bogging down sometimes, going to invest in the new injectors and a new TPS sensor and fix the mysterious drips and then ill end up making my car look great

as my dad told me
"you can have a great lookign car, but if it doesnt move what good is it!"
ill post up pictures tomorrow

Yes more pics If you end up wanting the S2K black chrome they only made it for the '01 and its pretty cheap through Honda don't try and find it online you will pay twice or even three times as much. I do like the flat black it looks good :)
