I like the badge on the front grille! It's not the normal Hyundai logo. Could you please advise if this is available in Singapore as a genuine Hyundai accessory? It's marvellous to see your car in Singapore, particularly attracted by the alloy wheels.   :goodjob2:

They're not the Hyundai logo so definitely not a genuine Hyundai accessory, the badges are aftermarket Brenthon look, two types so get your sizes right, if you have autonomous cruise sensor then you wont be able to change the badge as it will disrupt the functionality.

There is also the M&S badges though not sure if they have correct sizing :link: M&S Chrome Emblem - Shark Racing

My personal preference are the Concepto Emblem Set which are available in multple colour configurations :link: Concepto Emblem Set - Shark Racing

You can even have LED GT badges :link: GT Logo LED Emblem - Shark Racing

100% spot on. Choose brenthon logos for the 2016 kia sorento..they are a perfect fit size wise. Rear logo is more challenging as the H clips on to some tabs which u have to file down slightly.

In Singapore our i30s do not come with any front radar sadly. Hence all the more valid reason to mod the logo!

Does it clip on and do you have a link to where it is available?

Cheers,

The red line isn't the lip, look at the lower spoiler/bumper attachment with the side wings.

That's a great idea. I had some red trim on mine but it faded. I might try and source some rim protector material.  :goodjob2: :goodjob:

hi guys!

i got the lip from Taobao in china. my current network does not allow me to log in to that.

however if you have friends or of you are familiar with how that works (like a chinese ebay), search for front lips for the Kia K3 in China (2016 onwards facelift).

note that the china k3 is different from international models, and it just so happens to fit our car too :)

alternately, go to :link: Zymexx Fahrzeugtechnik - Seit über 30 Jahren.

they have front and side lip options for both the i30PD and i30N.

rather pricey tho....

That's a great idea. I had some red trim on mine but it faded. I might try and source some rim protector material.  :goodjob2: :goodjob:

I used red electrical tape for front and rear accent, worked well.

Did you use any extra adhesive? :eek:

No other adhesives required. It's been on for a month and no issues.  The rear accent is a little too much but the front accent is subtle goes well with the red theme.

I've got some very thin stripping (only probably 2mm wide) that I got via Ebay with 3M tape on it but I think I want something a bit heavier than electrical tape.  :undecided:

ricleo/mshk99, I think your red accents look better than that on the i30N! :)

The i30N is a beauty for sure (particularly in white), and the red accent on the back of it is great, but the one on the front looks wrong to me. Because of the way the main (body colour) lip angles up, while the red accent angles down to follow the line of the black corners, it just looks like the side parts have fallen off / are drooping!

I think the red accent on the front of the i30N would have looked better above the lower lip rather than below it (or along the middle line below the number plate, between the kinks), and should have been kept to just between the two pillars, like you guys have done on your PDs.

Just my opinion, of course! I still like the i30N a lot. In any case, yours are looking great! :)

Hi All,

I took your advise, ordered some red rim protector tape from ebay and stick it on the front spoiler.
I am happy with the result.

Ricleo, thanks for your help.

Looks good. Better adhesive I suspect than used on electrical tape.  :goodjob:

Have you got a link to where you got the tape from? Nearly $50 a roll on Ebay.

$10 for 8m on eBay.   Took about a week to be delivered.  There is 3m tape on the back.  Stuck on well except for the two ends as the lip on the car curves inwards there.  The rim protector doesn't curve very well.  I put a couple of drops of Loctite gel on each end and it hasn't moved.   I have plenty left to replace it if it fades.

Not sure if it would look good on the rims though.  If anyone had tried can you please post images or comment.  There is a huge rim guard on the Hankooks that come with the SRP so won't offer much more protection.

Shouldn't really matter what colour the car is as the red highlighted strip is incorporated into the matt black section which gives it the effect :goodjob2:
