Default Lexus carbon fiber emblem inserts

Does anyone know where I can get this for the grill emblem and steering wheel? EBay only has the trunk emblem.

I measured my emblem on my trunk and it is 12cm in length and 8cm in width yet the ad on eBay says the cf insert fits into a 13cm length and 9cm width. Would I have to use the Lexus emblem that they send with the inserts to make it work?

I got those same emblems and wasn't satisfied with the quality. The cf still shows a murky resin, it's more greenish, and the "L" emblem doesn't have a fluid form that forms the L, it's more edgy. I just ended up getting the cf inserts only from the eBay seller in California.

I think I read somewhere else on here that a member mentioned that about the emblems over seas was edgy... thanks for sharing your info. Hopefully someone can point us in the right direction for these. I really want to get ones for my steering wheel for sure. the front grill emblem I can do without but I'd definitely get it if there was a legit seller

I ordered that exact product (same seller) a few months ago and what arrived was total garbage. The "brand new" emblem was all scratched up, and it was the incorrect size. The emblem insert didn't fit either and was very poorly made (they use "hand made" as a euphemism for poor craftsmanship). Thankfully, I was able to get a full refund about 2 months after returning it.

I got my front and rear emblem inserts from L-Tuned Parts. Perfect fitment.

Gotta pay to play!

j/k, I think that might mean they're sold out. I have an extra set lying around my apartment somewhere that I'll dig up and sell at some point.

I'm almost tempted to get cf vinyl and make inserts myself. Considering I already wrapped my interior, pillars, grill surround, roof and roof spoiler
