    Hi all, I searched the forums for some time trying find out the best source for an illuminated emblem, but am not having much luck. I found an OEM illuminated emblem for the Aqua on eBay but it's quite spendy.
    Toyota Japan Aqua LED Light Front Hood Emblem JDM Badge Prius C Hybrid 2011 2014 | eBay

    I've also seen the other type on eBay that appears to be a sticker, but don't think it's the correct size for the Prius? I see that someone used the Corolla one, but it didn't appear as clean as if it the emblem were made that way. I've also found this: Junack USA | High Quality Customized And Modified LEDs

    But the emblem doesn't appear to be OEM, has a lot less blue in it when it's not illuminated. Just as expensive as the OEM eBay version.

    I also found Tommy Kaira at this place product information´╝Ü LED Illumination Emblem
    Tried translating the page but didn't get very far and I am unclear as to what one is indicated for the Gen III Prius.

    I was hoping someone out there could straighten me out some on all of this ;)

    Thank you.

    We've been noticing duplicated threads for some time now. Must be a glitch with the server duplicating the thread or the thread not appearing causing the OP to post it again.

    It's because the page no longer refreshes when you hit reply. It used to indicate that your post has been submitted and then return you to the new page. Now, all it does is put a little animation in the upper right corner.
    It makes it very easy to think that your post didn't go through.

    Not terribly friendly from a UX standpoint.

    Hi all, sorry for the repeated posts. When I pushed "post reply", my post seemed to just hang. I tried a few times not knowing if had actually posted. After the fourth or fifth one, I got the message that the post had been put up.

    I did get some confirmation from Rowen regarding the Tommy Kaira LED emblem. It appears as though w/ shipping the LED emblem will be ~$200. I've asked for more clarity as to what is included, but will likely be placing my order.

    I'll keep you all posted.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Yes, but hopefully worth it!

    Hi all, I received my emblem from Tommy Kiara in Japa. Excellent service and a really nice product. I like that's a straight 12 volt connection. Looks very similar to the factory emblem, although when I put both emblems together, I can see that the LED emblem uses a slightly different blue (which I like) but there isn't as much of the blue as the factory emblem. I wired mine to my fog lights, which I run all the time, just in case I need to turn it off for some reason. The LED isn't visible during the day (wish it was) but if it were, it would likely be too bright at night. All in all the LED emblem was ~ $175 and I received it in less than two weeks.

    How did you end up translating so you knew what you were getting ?
