Yeah I like changing stuff but minor stuff..
I own a powder coat shop so I’ll change the wheel color for sure and anything else that’s metal I can pull off without effecting warranty

If you change the badges, which design will you go with?
What are the options? If available, I would prefer the badges to be TELLURIDE instead of KIA. I would probably go with a gun metal grey logo on black. Very subtle, but I think it would look good with the SX black wheels and dark grill. I would do the same on the front, back, wheel center caps and steering wheel.

If I was to get a Telluride, I would have the dealership remove the "TELLURIDE" letters off the hood. That way the paint protection film could go on correctly. I most likely would also remove the lettering from the back, to me that seems like a place for dust/dirt/road grime to build up.

So something kinda sorta similar to this (linked) with TELLURIDE as the text in the proper font?

I would leave it the way it s. I like the kia badges and love the telluride across the hood and liftgate.
I agree. There’s nothing wrong with the Kia logo. If we all complain about it, Kyundai will spend $5 mil redesigning it and we’ll be looking at a $51,000 Telluride SX Prestige for MY 2022.

I personally would remove all the Telluride text and replace the ovals, wheel caps with Telluride if available. If I had a Range Rover I would remove the lettering just as I did on my Flex. I think the lettering like that looks tacky, kind of like having a decal on you windshield that says “PONTIAC” or what ever you make and model was in the 80s and 90s. I also believe they will be a place to dirt and grime to build up. Those letters prevent paint protection from going on the hood and are difficult to detail around. Can you tell I am not a fan 😉

Yes, okay, understood. I know of one manufacturer working on an oval TELLURIDE emblem already - so I think we'll have them available here soon... :)
