    I replaced all mine on my first S50 and the did cost a lot but worth it. The eBay jobbies are well fakes and you can tell being a purist like me ;-)

    I bought S54 ones though which IMHO look that bit nicer as the are convex. The colours are also supposed to be more UV tolerant but I still sprayed mine with clear lacquer lol

    Hello Chaps,

    I just had my rear M badge refurbished as it was badly faded (why do the rear badges seem to fade so badly?).

    I'll try and post some before and after pictures.
