Kewl. Do people ask you about your Lexus?

Did you do the wheels too? Do your wheels have KIA emblems?

You will probably get that, people often mistake these badges for Lexus badges. There are 3.0 K wheel cap overlays available if you wish for them to not read "KIA"

Sad to say these badges became weathered and pitted in a few short months. K5 Optima store, not Paul, refuses to stand behind their product and will not replace the pitted badges. I am taking the loss but I plan to just paint these badges a flat black color and try to cover up the pitted surfaces. I may look in to an all metal set of badges from a site directed to me by one of the members here. These look to be of much better quality:

There are simple measures we ask the customer to do before returning replacement badges, you'd be surprised how many people forget to remove the outer protective coverings or simply clean the badge off to remove salt etc. If you've covered these simple tasks and the badges arent in an acceptable condition we are more than happy to warranty your badges. David was just following protocol, simple question and answer with you.

I dont know if there was a misunderstanding but there was at no point during your conversation with David a refusal from K5 Optima Store of replacing the badges, I can assure you. At the end of the day we stand by our warranty, I'm sorry you're choosing not to have your badges replaced but that is out of my control.

Thanks,

-Paul

Got mine from Amazon. So far so good. Took a little longer because they came from Korea. Only paid 35 Had them for 6 months now I believe. First photo is before back K3/EX badges got painted and 2nd is after.
