Anybody with blue car and black emblems? Trying decide if blue or black. Decisions decisions
I'm pretty sure we've sold some black emblems to owners of the blue Optima. Just need to see if any of them are on the forum here and can post up some photos. Do you have the corsa blue color or the smoky blue?

Guess I could have asked my question here, instead of on your store. Are the black emblems a gloss or matte/satin finish? Pics on site look satin/matte but looking at install pics on here they look glossy. Just curious.

Oh cool! Well these will definitely look great on your ride whether you go with blue or black.

Hey Alex, the black "Black Edition" emblems are more of a gloss on the center section and matte on the edges, whereas the carbon fiber emblems are more matte all the way around.

Thinking of purchasing whole 7 piece set is there any updates coming out soon for the wheels and steering wheel?
Hey Anthony, sounds great! No these are the newest emblems that have been released. It will include the newest steering wheel emblem that was released last year.

Let us know if you have any other questions.

Good to go order placed! Can't wait to get them in.
Thank you for your order, got it shipped out the same day for you.

Sweet, looks really good. Thank you for posting up some photos.

does plasti dipping your badges match the finish of these emblems well? Or do you need to use the glossifier on top?
Which badges are you referring too?

Do the current instructions that are up for chrome also apply to these about needing to form the back emblem?

I'm sorry I do not understand your question. Are you asking if plasti-dipping the stock emblems look like the new "Black Edition" emblems do that you just ordered?

No that is not necessary with these since there is no chrome or metal in them. They are very flexible and conform to the shape of the trunk lid.

Sorry I am wondering if I were to plasti dip the "optima and sx" badges in black will it match the black emblems. Or is the emblem more of a gloss black instead of matte

Hey Anthony, on the Black Edition emblems the "K" and the outer ring are a matte black while the insert is glossy. So you have the option for matching either one. With the plastidip, you can start off with the plain black which is matte and see if you like it that way. If not just add glossifier to the "OPTIMA" and SX badges to your liking. Either way, you can't go wrong with these great emblems.
