I did a rebadge on mine. E emblem on the front and switched to the E center caps. I added the E overlay to the steering wheel as well. I also debadged the GT and AWD off the rear leaving only the STINGER badge. I'm going to eventually replace the STINGER badge with a black one or plastidip it.

The first stinger I test drove had the E badges already on it and I had to research the meaning of the E. I really liked what I found and the fact that it was used in Korea was pretty cool in my eyes. I ended up purchasing a different Stinger so I did the rebadging and debadging myself and love it lol.

In the front, I rebadged mine, but replaced the stock KIA badge with the K900 KIA badge. That one has a red carbon fiber-like look. The rear was swapped out to the Stinger script. Wheels have the red GT overlay.

Mine is 1/2 debadged. Replaced the front KIA with a stinger script decal, took off the rear GT Line and AWD parts. Dude on a bike once started to pass me on the highway, then slowed down to see the front badge, but it just said “Stinger”.


I'm planning on removing GT and AWD badges as well. they serve no real purpose especially here in Canada where I don't believe we have had any models that aren't GT or AWD...

Removed the two badges today. Using fishing line and cleaned up with goo be gone.

I have to say, it was very easy to do. I'm far more comfortable tackling the bigger logos. I'm going to get the large stinger logo to replace the rear trunk one and probably one of the different style kia ones for the front

I just put another set of new wheels and tires on, as the other new set had a manufacturer defect in the rears that caused a bad vibration, and I HATE VIBRATIONS, I feel like I can't drive the car the way I want and at certain speeds, IE...85 mph on freeway as the whole car was shaking and I might have chipped a tooth! So here are the new set

Nice, I dig the mesh style!

Are they stick on, or just sit in the spots so they can be removed and cleaned?


They attach with adhesive beads to the rubber removable mats that sit in the spots, so you can just remove the whole thing when you need to clean it. They fit right into the indentations perfect.


The GT logo is vinyl and more of a permanent adhesive (Although it could be scraped off easily). Given you don't actually touch the top of the knob for any reason it should last.

I like the pattern but I bet they would look even better if they were gloss black powder coated.

I did the rebadge my first week of owning the car. Stinger emblem on the back and e badges on front and wheels. I love seeing people look at the car then do a second take and stare at the e like what is this?

Thanks for the info.

Yea, but everyone is doing black and it just doesn't show that well, it just kinda washes out.The silver shows all the detail, and pops with the red. I almost went matte bronze...that looks great on red too. All in all I love it, everywhere I go people make comments about how great they look with the red. Who would have thought silver and red go good together...oh I did! Lol!

Everyone does black which is why I did silver, the black doesn't show the detail of the wheel and has no POP!
Couldn't agree more. Not enough contrast with the already black tires
