i would have to agree that the KIA emblems are ugly to me and don't care for them. i have plasti-dip mine. the front turned out pretty good, but the back could use some work (1st attempt at plasti-dipping). does/has anyone found a better alternative for the KIA emblems besides for the K symbol emblems that you 3m tape over the original ones.
I also find Kia emblems ugly, but it is a fantastic logo. Succint, identifiable, with the company name in a bold recognizable yet readable font. It's like a modernized Ford logo. Still, an ugly car accessory.
The light mod is a fantastic idea. I normally don't like stuff that just lights up, but this mod was tasteful. It's also functional, adding more light front&back, and adding a colour distinction for reverse. Well done!
If this could work with alternate badges, and if the LEDs aren't difficult to order, I'd do this mod.
