I saw this thread and thought it would be full of hilariously terrible mod ideas. Then I looked again.

The journey of our first modified 5...how exciting!

P.S. You're gonna love those blue K badges.

the K's look good. Are these emblems universal? I just ordered some today that were for the forte sedan because I couldn't find any for the forte 5

Cancel that order and get the koup sized emblems, the rear sedan emblem is too small. I bought the koup ones~

AnGel. How much did the emblems run you? If you ordered the ones for the sedan I'll purchase them from you. . (If that's allowed on this site:confused: . . . .sorry Shattered)

I paid 32 shipped, but the order got intercepted and they are shipping out the correct set.

look for them on ebay, there's a bunch of listings for them.

Oh that's cool. Do you have the link you used. Oh and I was just gonna help you get your money back since you ordered the wrong ones. But thank goodness for good sellers on Ebay that will cancel an order for you.

Also they ship from Korea, so expect em to take awhile. Well mine did =p

Sedan, Koup and 5 all share the same measurement for the front. The only difference is the Sedan rear is slightly smaller than the Koup and 5 rear.

The front and rear badges are the same size on the 5 door and the koup if you have trouble determining if a badge will fit because alot of people that are selling them dont have listing for all the forte models there is another kia that has the exact same size badges the KIA SORENTO will fit the koup and the 5 door from what ive heard and not seen is the 4 door has at least one badge that is an odd size so thats 5 out of 6 that are interchangable.
