Anyone know if the Koup badges fit on the F5? I want to buy some but since it's a new model, I'm not sure which ones fit since nobody advertises them for the 5.

No, the Koup has two different sizes front and back (113mm and 128mm I believe)

Our 5 SX's are both the same size front and back. I measured them at 113mm but the closest I could find is 110mm which is slightly smaller but looks great when mounted.

I would of thought Kia would use the same badges throughout their entire lineup where applicable. NO idea why a little arbitrary thing like badges need to be bigger or smaller. Honestly, I'm baffled. I'm interested in just a complete debadging but there is that groove/indent that's unsightly. Anyone know of a product that will fill those in?

Did you get the red badges?.....and if you did where did you order them from? I think those would look really good one there.

They use different sizing for the size of each car
If you look at the Sorento or Sedona, they are pretty big. So if you take our emblem and put it on Theres it would look horrible
The siE of the Sedona emblem is HUGE when in your hand and o n the car. But it fits the body of the vehicle perfectly
What indent are you speaking of?
I have debadged both of my boosted Optimas and now my Forte.
No problem with it at all. A little bit of heat and your golden

Anyone have real life photo's of the broken badges?

Debating what color I want to go with my '14 Forte 5 SX Pearl White....and all photo's I've seen are computer generated so obviously different shade in real life.

Carbon black would be default look nice, but if I was to give more ummmpphhh... if had red and painted calipers red as well, but then as well how would blue and blue rotors and blue LED's around look.......like i said debating and mind just wondering on my possibilities and such a simple mod.
