Ohhhhhh nooooooooo, I remember this topic. If you want a lot of answers right away, check out the old archive and search for it. There musta been 4 pages of it in that forum. Oh well. Here's my opinion: don't do it. Just to warn you, this may be a sensitive subject to some.

I would only do it if I had a jdm front end. But thats just my opnion. I don't think it's "rice" either way tho

I don't like it at all. Acura is the elite of honda, why would you want to take the drop? The acura badges look so much nicer anyhow, but that's just my opinion.

I'd consider it rice if you didn't do anything else to make your car look JDM... But if you have the JDM headlights etc... you're just completing the look!

in the US there are 2 types of Hondas: the economy (Honda badged - excluding S2K) and the elite (Acura badged). I saw if you bought it an "Acura" keep it Acura. Unless we lived in a country without Acura it'd be nice. Just my dos pesos.

edit: AND Canada...

I've seen tegs that are rebadged and it looked ok. After all, tegs everywhere outside North America are badged as Honda so why not? Your sunroof is labled as a Honda and so is the rest of your glass. Your motor is badged as a Honda too. It doesn't really matter. But if you are going to rebadge your car then do it right. Remove all Honda badging out of your car. That includes your floor mats and your steering wheel. E V E R Y T H I N G If you leave any 'A' badges then it will look cheap. Anything that makes your car look cheap is how I define rice. Clear tails may be ok on some cars but if they look bad on others then it would be ricey to put em on. That's just me though.

I just got done DE-badging my car, and I personally like it a lot more. Then again, I bought my car with yellow 'A' badges and Altezzas =P I bought some JDM ITR tails, and when I put them on, I had to chuck the yellow emblems. They were horrible!

I think it looks really clean with no badges, personally, and I'm most likely going to keep it that way...

I think it looks like its missing something with NO badges...

Also, I like the definition of rice above... anything that makes the car look cheap! I also agree that its all or nothing. Change the emblems and you should change the steering wheel too!

It is just a badge after all. If you look on the back of an Acura emblem you will find HoNDA stamped right on it. It's all the same, do what makes you feel better.

If you get "H" badges then at least change the ACURA letters on the left of the hatch to HoNDA. It makes me laugh when I see people rolling around with "H" emblems but they still left the ACURA badge on their car. That just looks half-assed to me.
