I ordered the blue ones and really like them. my only question is, how come they don't fully fill in the emblem area on my '12 sx-t?

Got my emblems installed. I love they way they look compared to the stock Kia ones. Very nice quality emblems.
Thank you for your business with us!

Thank you for your order, glad to hear you like them!

That's a bit strange regarding the emblems being installed on your 2012 Optima. Kia changed the emblem sizes in 2013 to be a little larger in size than before, and since that change, the aftermarket emblems are still the same size. So even though the indented area where the emblem is applied to is the same size on all 2011-2016 models of Optima, the emblem itself got larger in 2013 on all Kia models.

When comparing the aftermarket emblems we carry on the site to the 2011-2012 models of Optima, they should be the same size. When comparing the aftermarket emblems we carry on the site to the 2013+ Kia Optima, they will be slightly smaller than the originals, as noted on the product description page on our site where you order the emblems from.

I was wondering the same thing. They're probably a good 1/4" smaller.
(See above) Definitely NOT 1/4 smaller though.
That might be a bit of a stretch.

I noticed the same thing on my '16. But I haven't decided if I can live with it yet or not. I have only put the front on. Not the rear yet.

1/4" is probably a stretch, you're right. I noticed they were slightly smaller, but no big deal. They look great.
No problem, glad you like them and are happy overall!

I'm sure you're gonna love them once installed. The front is more noticeable than the rear that it is a fraction smaller than the original one.

I am in love with the red wine emblems. My stock ones were in real rough shape so it was nice to find black edition ones. Quick and easy install, would definitely recommend!

Bumping up this thread with a question, any chance that we can purchase LODEN's K Emblems, but the sticker ones? It's like a cover that goes over the original Kia factory one.

Metal Skin Badges | Loden Emblems
I’m sure you can purchase these, but definitely not from us.

This is a completely different company’s product altogether, having nothing to do with the product that we sell.

Loden is the front company for the real parent company behind it: Korean Automotive Imports

Alright no problem, figured I'd ask before buying elsewhere. Thanks.
You're very welcome, and thank you for checking with us to see if we can order it for you.

Many many times we can get other products from other sites to sell to our customers with discounted pricing.

However, we refused to sell their products due to many many issues with them in the community.

Just received my set of Black Edition badges for my '18 Optima; not a complaint since the product description does mention it but yup the hood and trunk badges are indeed a wee bit smaller than the OEM ones and you can definitely notice the difference once installed...but to be fair it's not that big a difference that it totally detracts from the overall look of the Black Edition badges.
