Just came across a post on FB where a member in Australia swapped out the front KIA emblems for the E badge as well as swapped out the rear for the larger Stinger badge. The only issue he had was that the outline of the old emblem was still visible. I believe you can easily remove that with a bit of wet sanding.

Note: You have to trim down one of the pins in order to make them fit as the backs are different.



Part# 86330 J5100, 86330J5100, 86330-J5100

Getting close now .... the dealer has fitted the "E" badges, and the new wheel caps.
Only issue is that the Kia badge on the front has left a faint outline of where it used to be, the E badge is smaller. The dealer says it won't polish out. I can't understand how that can be .... will go check it out before they prep the car.
Anyways .... loving the big Stinger emblem on the boot.
Not long now

Just a heads-up there are indeed holes underneath the rear KIA Badge, so the STINGER emblem will not work.

Just put a little clear silicone in the holes and make sure the Stinger script badge covers them up.

No need to get a replacement top or antenna. You can have the top and antenna wrap in black vinyl

IMG_0383.jpg Yes but these strips have a white rubber seal. I need to get black ones, so I thought it would be easier to get the black antenna at the same time

No need. A reputable vinyl installer will be able to cover those seals and antenna without issue. I am having mine done this coming weekend.

Not my car, but you can use as reference.
