    I imagine different front emblems might fit, say, one of a different color scheme that is made for a different model Toyota or something. Mine is cracked and I want to replace but while I'm at it, I'd like to get one with a different color scheme. Maybe black instead of chrome. I know replacing the background is easy enough and I might be cool just doing that too.

    Thought I'd ask.

    C'mon, it's the Bat logo you're after, isn't it?

    Regardless of its appearance, the emblem needs to be radar-transparent.

    Ha, no.

    Is that a thing though? For the Prius? Asking for a friend.

    Do I have a radar there? I didn't think so. Prius Two, 2016. I don't think I have any front crash detection and I certainly don't have radar cruise control. My front bumper doesn't have the little holes for sensors either. Do I still need to be concerned with that?

    I googled, didn't see any. But the image is pretty much the same shape. This is one genie that maybe should get out of it's bottle...

    And matching wheel centre caps? :whistle:

    bat logo instead of toyota - Google Search

    Your profile says “2017 Prius Two”; if you have a 2016 model without TSS-P, then there is no radar, of course.

    Yes, I would like to know also.. Saw some Red colored emblems on EBAY that appear to fit "over" the current one.. But the size doesn't seem to match.......
    Other threads or maybe from youtube, showed how to "plati-dip" them.. I think that was the term....plasti-coat ??? something like that.
    I'm looking for Red 2015 Prius emblems...

    Plasti-Dip is a product. Originally touted in commercials for dipping tool handles, give them a softer plastic coating. Comes in cans and spray cans, multitude of colours.

    I get mixed answers on if it's safe for plastic. Something about regulation changing the contents inside but I kept some in a plastic party cup and it ate though it.

    This might not be very relevant, but on the 3rd gen prius atleast, the Lexus emblems from the Lexus LX570 (both front and rear) fits perfectly and is the identical size of the 3rd gen prius. It should also be radar cruise control emblems that is plug n play with the 3rd gen, so i can imagine it being the same for the 4th gen (that it shares the size of the emblem with some Lexus model, or a non hybrid toyota model).

    And was it really sold Gen 4`s without radars??? Here even the base version (active i think its called) got radar cruise control and TSS 2.0, might be a EU regulation thing then...
