Where has everyone else gotten theres from? The only thing I'm sketchy about with the ebay emblems is the quality. I want good quality emblems and I want to replace not cover the existing badges/emblems. Any help?

My advice would be to skip the broken K badges, they don't hold up well over the winter months. Mine look horrible and will be coming off as soon as it gets warmer out. I didn't even get a full year out of them and I stay on top of my car as far as care is concerned.

Really? Damn, they look so kool. But the only ones I've found look pretty cheap and just stick on. :-/ Oh well, thanks for the advice. I guess I'll just look for something else to replace all of the bloody Kia emblems/badges lol.

maybe oneday everybody will be proud to own a kia and the market for badges and emblems will collapse: LOL kia has a shite reputation in australia too,just as hyundai did many years ago but despite the fact they build good cars nowadays their past mistakes come back to haunt em:(

Agreed. Kia has come up in the years, however I still hate any badges on my cars lol. Looks much cleaner w/o the name or model of the car written all over it. I'm not ashamed of owning a Kia, just want people to look at my car and go, "WTF is that?"

Same reason I got my badges and it works lol. I'm proud to own a kia, not ashamed of it at all only that blah looking badge. Seriously, KIA is redesigning their image on the road, why not that badge too?

I bought mine from jayongmall on eBay. If you live where the winters are harsh that badge may not do well is what I've read on here. I'm in NC and we get all kinds of weird weather but my badges are holding up pretty well.

I have K-badges but they look like shit after winter. I'm about to put a little paint on my KIA badges to darken them up, and put them back on

Has anyone tried to clearcoat the emblems before putting them on? Just wondering how it turned out. I ordered new badges all around but am hesitant to put them on if they're going to look terrible in a year.

I would deff. like to know the answer to this as well. If it's a nice easy solution I will be purchasing those badges asap. They look soooo nice but I live in OH so they will look soooo not nice after 1 winter... haha

The emblem that say they're made for the Koup can still fit the sedan, right?

Like these ones
