    I just bought the black emblem set from them. I hope mine last a decent amount of time. For $80.00, i'd expect better quality.

    I thought about buying from them but it was well over $100 US plus shipping. Bought the same things on ebay for far less. But, to OP's problem: I would mask it off, lightly sand with 600 grit to rough up the surface, and hit the emblem with a few coats of clear poly, like helmsman, something for marine surfaces. It will be good as new.

    Yup, my front one did the same thing, I replaced it with a legit one.

    Try hand buffing it with wax, I use Meguiars gold class wax. It really smooths scratches in plastic or clearcoats. My boy had a 2008 white civic that had alot of door sill scuffs. So I used Barkeepers Friend soft scrub then waxed it. Looked like new afterwards.

    Sorry to hear man, not sure if GRFXP still make something similar to these, could be a fix for you.

    At least you've received an email back. My front emblem did something similar, ended up wrapping it in some grfxp "alien eye" overlay. A lot less noticeable. I knew they were knock-offs ordering but for 80 i thought they may have a bit of quality.

    They are all knock offs the only jdm emblems there are is the red ones and you gotta really check to see where they came from I got the Kplayground red emblems a long time ago and within months they went to crap so u went to procivic and bought the jdm ones from them and they are apparently the real ones from procivic and I have not had a problem yet

    I could definetly vouch for pro civic.. Their red Jdm emblems are official.. I had mine for over 2 years and they still look great.. My car is always outside too.. Some low life loser even stole the front one and tried to steal the back one but cracked it 2 months ago.. So I'll buy my next pair from pro civic..
