Yes I have, and done through the dealer so badges and workmanship are covered in the 7 year warranty. My reason for the change was purely based on my dislike of the badge design, the heavy black background of the Kia emblem is too aggressive against most of the colour options of what is otherwise a very good looking car. If the original badge was just a chrome outline or something similar, I would have kept it without issue. It is the design, features, value for money and Kia standing behind their quality with a 7 year warranty which made the choice between buying a Stinger or a European alternative an easy choice for me. Not to mention the dieselgate issue has has destroyed my trust in most of European competitors.
The E and K badges are the " original badges " the Stinger comes out with for the KDM, Kia is just for imported stock.
Love your colour choice of Indigo, and the badge suits it really nice with the white in it, and the design, I am assuming your Indigo colour is the same as my Deep Chroma Blue here in Australia. Enjoy.
Correct. "Indigo" is just the name of the package. The package includes is Deep Chroma Blue paint Limited slip rear diff, D-AWD (drift mode), 15speaker Harmon Kardon sound system, Alternate (type A) wheels, and alcantara headliner along with the brown interior.
Okay, they're an entirely different entity. That's not the forum store. HOWEVER! They're great and very well-respected in the "mod" community. So you're in good hands with them.

That's etched in there not a sticker or decal. Not really removable, mate.As someone who isn't much of a car guy, I was able to change my badges out without many issues as long as you're taking your time. Just make sure you're using actual fishing line and not decorative fishing wire, that stuff snaps just by looking at it.
On a similar subject, does anyone know a good way to get of these KIA window decals? Not sure why they needed to slap 6 of these on my windows. View attachment 49315
Why do you want to own a Stinger that would look like it's fitted with non OEM glass?
