    Matte Black KIA emblem

    So I am driving home from work yesterday and I see this really nice Mercedes Benz. Totally blacked out windows, AMG, etc.. But what really caught my eye was the front and rear hood/trunk emblems. There were matte black. With the shiny black paint under the matte black. It looked so cool. So I got to thinking, and that always gets me in trouble! I asked the guys at K5 Optima store and they don't do the "KIA" emblems just the "Broken K" ones. Has anyone seen anything like this?

    That doesn't look to bad. I still need to get my K badges off and send them into K5 for a replacement.

    The only problem is our stock emblems have a smooth surface not like the pro ceed in the pictures. If you would have to replace the badges anyway wouldn't you just get broken k ones?
