What are the Stinger badges made of? Plastic, metal, combination? I purchased badges for a Kia Optima 2 years back, which were plastic, and the front badge quickly became discolored due to being made of a poor quality plastic. What is the guarantee?

Hi @Neill Franklin. Welcome aboard. And thank you for signing up! I'm going to guess you purchased a set of replica "K" emblems from eBay or Amazon. They're cheap and don't last long. Sometimes they don't stick for very long. What I sell here:
Products Archive - The Stinger Store

... are OEM badges from South Korea - not cheap copies from China. They won't fade and will last the lifetime of the vehicle just like any OEM vendor badge. If you want the "K" version, you need to get those badges from our vendor here:
Emblems and Badging

While their badges are not OEM, they're not cheap eBay copies. They're made to last and come with a guarantee. Either choice you make will be better than the first from two years ago...
 
Thanks for the quick reply. I prefer the look of the OEM badges over the "K" version and will giver them a go.
 
Order placed. Thank you my friend.

So got my badges from here and installed. Both the front and back KIA badge are just 3m adhesive only holding them. The back will have 2 prongs to line up and the front will have 3 prongs. Mixture of heat, adhesive remover and fishing line will get the job done.

I did notice the 3 holes on the front. the bottom hole is opposite the prong on the Korean E badge. Therefore I had to trim the bottom prong off with a Dremal.

Did mean a Dremal? Not a dermal?

Great video yall! Since this mostly shows the back side, as mentioned, the front has the same removal process but 3 prongs vs the 2 on the back KIA badge. My OEM E badge for the front had the bottom prong on the opposite from the USA front end hole placement. Therefore I had to dremel down the bottom prong enough it was below and wouldn't scratch. Heat, adhesive removal and use fishing string(some have used floss) to make a saw action until you can loosening enough adhesive. Wanted to provide some pictures for those like me who are more visual.

Thanks for the post. Doing exactly the same. The big Stinger emblem on the back looks much better by itself. Very clean! Nice job!

Is that a black Stinger text badge or is it just the lighting?
