In America, we have acura rsx, not honda integra. If anything, I would either leave it as "Acura RSX-S" or debadge it, and not replace the emblems. Main reason I stay with the whole Acura emblem thing is, besides the fact it's a jdm car, Honda wanted it to be "Acura" in America, so I'll leave it as is. I don't care if every part in the car says Honda on it because Honda decided to name it an Acura here in the states.

As for the popo that told you to change it back to acura, he's only suggesting you do it. If i was a cop and didn't know shit about jdm stuff, the license plate that would bring up another model and make from the current badges would tell me something's fishy. I mean, the popo could've thought you stole someone else's license plate :dontknow:

I really doubt it's a law. We can put anything on the side of our cars can't we? Hell, I could cover the whole car with every single emblem in the world and it shouldn't be a problem. Damn pigs... :shakehead
