I want to install K emblems on a 2020 Kia Forte Sedan (Canada).

I have searched through the threads regarding emblem replacement and there seems to be a lot of different factors.

First, the durability of the emblems. I saw one post which mentioned rusting.

Second, does the new emblem stick on the old emblem or is the old emblem removed and then the new one installed.
Which method is best for durability?

Third, size. I have seen these emblems offered but no sizes are given in some cases. Ordering a product that will not fit will necessitate a return and refund which can get quite messy.

So does anyone know a source for front, rear and steering quality emblems for a 2020 Forte sedan. The source should give a size description and clear installation instructions.

Thanks for any info.

Jay

K5 Optima Store has what you're looking for.


Can't say much about the quality, I just got them myself, but they seem just like OEM badges.

Remove the old emblem completely, and stick these ones on.

K5 Optima Store has selection boxes for each car, so you can select yours to get the perfect match.

Yes, I got the chrome edition ones and just put them on yesterday. Here's what it looks like on the trunk.
The chrome ones look more like something that would plausibly come from the factory.

. This is what's behind the wheel emblem, it's not as smooth recess in the 2020.

I love in Florida, so warm wasn't an issue, just parked in the sun. Regular mono didn't do the job. It kept breaking, but spider line cut right through without issue. The forte is adhesive only, 10 seconds and then a little googone and wax. Getting the front started was a pain, it sits in a recess and you can't just slip the line in.

The rear was easy, and the forte is adhesive only. 10 seconds and it was off.

I’ve bought a few different sets from eBay for my main emblems front and rear. For steering wheel and wheel centre caps I got laminated overlays that are like thick bubble stickers and have a slight recess in the back so they cover the existing ones from KDMWarehouse. They are designed to go on top of the existing emblems They have a website and an Etsy store.
