Hi Guys,

I was going to buy the K logo on ebay, then I realise that there are different sizes (this is stupid). Which is the size for the forte Koup 2015 SX? Thanks in advance.

It is ok, I found them, thanks for your time. I was trying to combine from different sellers because usually the whole kit with the K in carbon fiber is between $55 and $75. I found one set in $19.99 (7pc Set KDM Forte Koup 2dr K Logo 3D Emblem Badge Front Rear Steering Wheel 4 16 | eBay), so I can use the wheels cap and the steering wheel, and then get the Carbon Fiber for front and rear for $27 (Kia Forte Koup 2015 Carbon Fiber K Logo Emblem Badge 2pc Set Front Rear | eBay). At the end, it will be ~$47.

The ones from K5 are plastic?? I thought they were the good quality replacement parts.

I just ordered some and I'll be pissed I paid $100 of they are plastic. I expected the eBay ones to be plastic. Not these.

This is why I didn't order the ones from K5optimastore. They are expensive and looks cheap at the same time.

There was a thread about them on here somewhere, personally I bought a set from K5 and was disappointed to the point of not even installing them and when I called to see if I could return them because of the quality I was told they don't refund for that reason. It has to be a defect or wrong item and since I got what I ordered they were going to do nothing. So I sent them to someone to 3D scan and possibly have them machined from aluminum or stainless and then do a color inlay or just polish. Wasn't in a rush for them since I know they are busy, busy, busy.

Definitely not worth the price paid

Wow. I hadn't seen them mentioned much here, but on the ForteForums all you hear is good things about them.

That's extremely disappointing. I ordered the carbon fibre white ones, are they gonna be extra cheap cause I opted for the carbon fibre? I wonder...

I have the black carbon, they are plastic but I think they look good. The steering wheel and centre caps for the rims are cheap and def not worth the money.

I wondered the same thing when I ordered my black edition ones. They are plastic emblems with some 3m tape on the bottom.

For me they are fine. I didn't expect much when I ordered them. I would suggest looking into the Loden emblems for higher quality. I have never tested them myself but I know the Hyundai guys use them.

I just got my cheap ebay emblem. You get what you paid for, they look really cheap. Even the painting is not well done. The only thing that came good was the wheels covers. I will only put the K logo on the wheels (I definetly hate that KIA word in the wheels).

Yeah the K5 Optima ones that came out to be $95 Canadian are total cheap plastic pieces of shit, at least the "carbon fibre" ones.

I received mine with the white vinyl peeling up in 2 spots on both exterior logos. They are entirely plastic.

If you really want these, save yourself the money and buy the eBay ones for $20. They would appear to be identical in quality.

I got mine from kdm motors inc
40-45 shipped
They are not like normal emblems . Kind of remind me of VW block style . At the meets everyone seems to like them . They are cast plastic not painted . Not sure how the chrome version is though
