Man, they look much better than the crooked 'H' logos. And at least for a few more weeks (before these cars become Camrys < ha ha>) people would be puzzled what it is when slapped on a debadged car like mine :grin:.

I just emailed the guy asking if they're OEM. I'm not interested on aftermarket ones; they're usually crap. Good day.

haha yea my car is debadged also and im already getting such weird looks.... the thing i just realized is the emblem on the trunk doesnt have a black background like those do. It is the crooked H with the body color behind it....idk if the black would look good on my pacific blue

That is exactly why I didn't buy them. I like the logo better too, but that black background makes the whole thing look really cheap to me.

At first I looked at it and thought "The New Chevy Impala". On second thought it's the new Lexus badge.

If it's not open around the logo like the original one, so my paint shows through, then I just can't see myself putting it on. I like the tigris emblem too, but won't use it for the same reason.

Looks great but I would have to agree about it not being a open air emblem. I do have a black SE but still do not think that a ebay product will look or last like a oem part.

yea maybe if we wait another couple months they will have something more like the OEM symbol (which i dont think its an ugly symbol at all, i just wanted my car to be unique before you start seeing sonatas ALL of the place)

Didn't notice that until the comment was made, and it's a deal-breaker for me. Plus just heard (finally!) from the eBay seller, and it's aftermarket, so a double deal-breaker. I thought it was the Korean Hyundai symbol (like Holden's Australian one for GTOs and G8s, which is MUCH better looking than Pontiac's), not some invented crap. Needless to say, I'm staying stock.

I just need OEM rubber floor and trunk mats (and tint, but that's coming next weekend). Are they going to be available anytime soon? Come on Hyundai :grin:.

I like the idea of no emblem for sure, but four slats is a little too much for my tastes. The OEM grille just without the emblem would have been perfect. Plus I wouldn't take his 'same quality as OEM' word for it without feedback from a forum member or two with a few thousand miles on one. Aftermarket parts typically wear much quicker than stock, because they're made cheaper. I'm going to leave car stock for a while. Just need rubber mats :grin:.

Hey, don't get me wrong; it's not a bad looking grille at all, but not enough to sway me. And it's very well priced. If you get one, please let us know so I can ask you in a few months how it's holding up. Maybe they'll make a 3-slat one later on. Take care.

Does anyone know a source for the KDM emblems? I would love to have one that says YF24 to fill up the right side of the trunk. GF has three emblems on her trunk (the H, Hyundai, and Sonata). Just want to keep the symmetry.

At first I didn't like this emblem but as the days go by its grown on me. Anyone else think these look good? I was thinking on replacing the grill with the one that deletes the "H" and then adding this emblem to the rear. Any thoughts?

A buddy of mine owns a custom metal working shop with some really cool computerized metal cutting machines, He is going to try make me a badge to replace the Hyundai badge but with my Initials "JMD" replacing the "H" from there he has a friend who Chromes metals & plastics who is going to Chrome it for us, Once I get it from him I will post pics.
