My g/f's badges were stolen off her AU XR^. BOught replacement ones form ex harrison ford. The new ones are plastic, but i was sure the originals were backed with metal?
Went there and asked them for a refund as i was after genuine ones, and they told me the plastic ones were genuine??

everyone i speak too says they are metal backed. I even have some stuck on my front calipers, and from what i remember they were metal. Cos if they were plastic i wouldnt have stuck them there cos they would have melted?

i think its the chrome bits inside the badge, that the white, red etc is painted on. the back of the badge itself is a think layer of plastic, and the magnet will only stick to the back of the badge, not the front.
