I finally added the "SX" letters badge from a 2012 Optima SX to my 2011 Sportage SX.

I didn't want to pay dealer price for the emblem set (comes w/ SX letters and T-GDI badge -- I could not find it as separate pieces) which was around $30 plus a few dollars for shipping. So, I checked eBay periodically until I finally found someone selling a new OEM set for $10 plus $3.75 to ship. Good deal!

Anyway, it bugged me that my little SX turbo didn't have the "SX" badge as other Kia SX's do. I really never understood why they left that off the 2011-2012 Sportages...

I know it's just 2 letters/a trunk badge, but I like how it looks and think it adds an additional touch of awesomeness to an already kickass vehicle :p

I totally would share the link if I could. This was a "one off" item. I looked at the other stuff he had up for bid and it was just random stuff. So, he/she doesn't have these for sale so to speak. I just kept checking eBay every once in a while until I found a set for either a 2011 or 2012 Optima.

Wish I could help more! Again, other than paying full price through a dealer it seems you just need to keep checking online for a random set to show up...

ps... I'll dig up the link to the auction I won. Maybe the guy will have more in the future? I'll post the link later today once I get home.

I inquired about the price of the emblem, including the T-GDI at dealership where I was having some routine service done (they had a 2013 SX in the showroom with this badge). It was over $50 for the "SX T-GDI" badge...and unfortunately (or fortunately?), there weren't any available at the warehouse.

I noticed they also had a 2013 Sorento SX V6 in the showroom with an "SX V6" badge so I asked about the price for that badge: a little over $30 and they were available. He ordered one and I picked it up today. The "SX" and the "V6" were separate badges, but sold as one. I threw away the "V6" portion.

If you're interested, the part number is 86318 1U000.

Meh......I am generally a fan of taking badges off, not adding more. But to each their own.

Those "K" badges are starting to grow on me though......

I added the "SX" badge on the rear of my Sportage before the "T-GDI" badge and the "SX T-GDI" on the front fender on both sides around spring of last year. I will be adding the K badges this summer.
