They don't look black to me on the limited edition:

The Honda badges aren't black - I got this confirmed when I enquired about the LE at my dealer. You can also see the badge on the front of the LE in this thread sporting the blue surround.

The black badge they're talking about is the "Honda e" model badge on the hatch, and the silver accents are painted black on the 17" 'gas burner' style wheels on the LE. These are the only differences between the LE and the regular e advance.

You can also order the regular e in Premium Crystal Red now too, so there's no real point in the limited edition to be honest, given that the only limited edition stuff is the black Honda e badge on the hatch, and the slight difference in wheels. You could basically buy the red one, de badge it and get the wheels fully powder coated black, and you'd basically have a car that was indistinguishable from the Limited Edition.

When I get mine, I'll probably look for red type-r "H" badges in the right size, and replace the silver and blue ones to match the red paint.

Type r badges would actually be cool on the red.
I thought for sure it would be more than just removing the diamond cut and having a black rear (text) emblem.

I’ll use my vinyl cutter to make some covers to cover them up. The nice thing is that it’s then reversible if I later grow tired of all black, or if I want to sell the car and can offer both looks.

There was a 6 month old limited edition that showed up here just after I ordered. He even dumped the price by 30%.
Well, considering all the dust, grime and trash in the pictures, he probably didn’t take too much care of it anyways.

Once I get my e delivered I'm going to measure up and see if there are any red badges that are the same size for other Honda models, if there are, I'll order a pair and swap them out (my car is coming red, and I agree they'd look super cool)

If not, I think I'll do the same as you, and black them out.
