Anyone tried replacing the American KIA emblems with the 3D K logo? If so which did you use. I notice those on Amazon are listed by models that don't yet include Niro. (I'm hoping on getting an EX sometime in the next week or so) -Ned

The "3D K" logo is used by KIA on their South Korean cars. The KIA letter logo is just for exports-- but in my view a much less sophisticated logo. A number of after market options exist for replacing your logo on trunk, hood, steering wheel, etc. An image is attached. -Ned

It would be great if the emblem didn't have that background, much like what we see from other car makers. Since i'm a Mazda fan, here's an example from Mazda:

How to Install the 3.0 K logo emblems

I reaaaaallllly like the K logos. :)
My dealer said that Kia is going to make another brand, and the K900 and Cadenza (and probably Stinger) will be in that lineup. Just like Genesis Car.

A few years ago I bought a Hyundai Accent for a beater car, and someone remarked it looked like some mini-Mercedes that were sold only in Europe- mostly Eastern Europe. So I bought an E-bay Mercedes steering wheel emblem which was the same size as the Hyundai hood ornament. I used strong dentalfloss like a saw to remove it, and double sided 3M tape to apply the Mercedes emblem. It looked great, stayed on no problems. I got a few good laughs and looks, and some even thought it was a Mercedes.

P.S love the car.

To appreciate a vehicle means making it your own. You sound like an educated man I'd say you were about 6 years old and still shitting your pants. If a man or woman wishes to personalize there vehicle who the FCUK are you to mean bitch scratch about it?

Pretty sure the K5 logo predates the Lexus brand. You should have a similar issue with the Mazda logo too.

Hate, hate the new Kia logo. That said, if it would fit my car, I would have probably used it instead of replacing the Ford like Kia logo with the K5. I like adding a bit of mystery to the fairly uncommon Niro. I did leave the Niro name on the rear just so the curious could Google it. I did remove the hybrid badge - would have been OK with a low key hybrid announcement on the back except I found it excruciatingly ugly as designed: "ECO hybrid" in a raised plastic bit - seriously?

Love the new logo. The old logo is three letters. The new logo is a design, an emblem that can also be read as three letters. I find the way they connected the letters and repeated elements within the design quite elegant. If you don’t like it, fine. To each his own - I won’t be cutting you down here.
