Got the Badman (AF) X Ti as the regulars don't suit my high-cheekboned, flatter nose bridge, Asian face. :) I am impressed with the build quality. I was skeptical at first as it is not fully metal like the previous X Metals (Juliet, Romeo, etc). I am like the looks and have gotten a few praises. I am giving it a 4 star though as Oakley does not have the XTi (AF) in polarized. (There are actually more polarized options in regular models vs AFs, across the board, unfortunately.) . Wanted the Plasma or the Scuderia or the Dark Carbon but the optical shop I went to only had the XTi and at the time I got it, Luxxotica did not have any other Badman AF in stock.

As a last resort, I got third party lenses (Fuse+) so I can have polarized lenses as the glare was bothering me. I use them primarily for driving. They don't fit as snugly as Flaks but these are not Sport frames, so that is understandable. I like the flex/springs on the temples too.
