I don't have any idea where you would find a green one. In an attempt to be helpful, I looked at some of the sites on my list that might sell these things, but I couldn't find anything.

However, I do know a guy who painted parts of his VW rear badge for his Jetta.  It was pretty easy. If you wanted to paint the parts that are actually chrome, I'm sure you could somehow sand off the chrome on there now, and fairly easily spraypaint it green with a high quality spray paint.  Shouldn't be too difficult of a job.

I shot my front emblem black and it looked great until it got all chiped up by the rocks.

The point I was trying to make was, if it wernt for the rock chips it would still look great. All I used to paint it was black krylon and some model clear coat.

Yeah, so as greg said, get an emblem, paint it, since it wont be on a car it will hold up and look good. He wasn't jacking your thread, but offering his esperience with painting an emblem.
