I'm going from the silver to the all black front and back. Bought from ebay, not cheap, says it fits a iM but the front one does not have a guide stud for the plate like the OEM and is a little smaller. Rear one fits perfect. My experience getting that plate off was something glad you didn't see. Read somewhere push on the tabs. Right did that nothing happened. Started prying on the badge and then the plate popped out. Easier with plate out to get all the sticky stuff off. You can get most of it off rolling it with a thumb.

finally named correctly!!
took a while to align the badges but they came out great!
to remove the factory iM just use a hair blower to soften the glue and a piece of dental floss for removal,then use a microfiber towel and goo gone for residue removal!!!

dont forget to clean the area with alcohol before installation!!
added some pictures ,red one is from a jdm auris,yep jdm one badges are slightly off center! mines are not perfect but i can live with that! you wont notice from an airplane!!

Thanks!
Still figuring out how some pics of the auris show them aligned in straight line and some like the red one here are tipped and follows the lower arc or line.
I did mine following the line but im not happy with it,the Rs looks ok because is short but the Auris looks tipped down becuase is longer.saw different pics from other auris and some of them dont have that arc in the rear door,they have the line straight from end to end,maybe different years who knows!!
Taking the exmaple of the red one they go aligned to lower line,or.maybe my eyesight is failing!

Feedback welcome!! Im about to take them out or place them in straight line!?
