I have the IND one on my car. Aside from putting the two up against each other, no one will ever know the difference...it's a nice quality part.

The blue is slightly different but have to ask, how old is the OEM chrome badge? Either it's just dirty or it looks well worn. If it is older the colors on the OEM badge could have faded a bit over time... As other point out, replace it and no one will notice the difference.

Car is only a year and few months old will try cleaning To make sure but looked around and all the other badges on the car are same color as the chrome ... Definitely wouldn't try to switch stickers just was curious if anyone else noticed it on there's still not sure what to do yet

Are you sure the badge is OEM? How thick is the tape on the back? Does the tape look OEM?

I spent $40 or so on a badge from IND and its a fake. Came with like 1/4" thick tape on the back and the sticker is crooked. Such a joke, I ordered from IND vs. eBay or jlevi because I thought IND's badges were OEM, just painted. It looks alright but I hate having fake shit on my car.

i replaced mine 2 months ago. got it from khoalty. spent $20. looks good but after a few washes the sticker is starting to fade. I thought about IND but im not spending that much on a rear badge. Found one on ebay that is metal for $10. will try that and see.
