Got my GT a few weeks ago and ready to start changing my emblems. However, I am not to crazy about the available options and decided to get some custom emblems made. This is my 1st draft and was wondering what you guys thought about the design? C435265E-AF6A-448C-AF54-6B25FD9E6FC4.png

I did the E badge up front, 14 inch Stinger bage on the back (removed small Stinger and GT badges) and E badge lug nut covers. Left Kia symbol on the steering wheel because I refuse to do a generic E cover. Plus its flat out amazing to be reminded that this car is yes, a Kia believe it or not!

I'm going to get the E airbag for the steering wheel, looks way better...(y)

There are 8,703 members on this forum.
Worldwide KIA Stinger sales to date is 35,597.

Seems to back up why the Stingers I've seen since buying my car (admittedly not many) have OEM badges, as does my car.

I was going to rebadge mine until I saw all the peeling paint issues then decided not to.

If you have patience and take your time there should be no issues. I had no paint peeling issues with mine

Another Stinger forum has gone lunatic with this debadge/unbadge stuff, even their moderators have lost it.

Let's not become them!

But yeah, I'd have to agree. Definitely looks Maserati-ish. Let's be proud our Stingers are made by KIA.(y)

That's what happens when the owner that site/forum start selling junk and pushing all over his forum. That's a big conflict of interest and I refuse to go on that site.
