Just thought you might like to know...

Anyone who bought or is buying new emblems ("SS" or "Camaro") the emblems aren't a product of North America. Specifically marked as "made in Korea" on the GM packaging and also on a sticker on the parts themselves. I found that interesting is all. So before everyone starts bashing a KIA...something to consider.

2010 2SS/RS Auto, Sunroof, Engine Cover. Transformer Edition package.
2013 ZL1 ragtop #5478. 1 of 54 CRT M6 'verts.

That car's about the same size as the Camaro emblem...if they named it something longer, the lettering wouldn't fit on the car.

I am thinking about going with first gen. badges anyway. I think those are still made here. My other option is "de-badged". If people can't tell what I have by looking, well all the better.

IBM RS/SS: Vortech V3 (7.5lbs/boost) Trinity/Dyno Tune/Texas Speed LT w/Magnaflow Comp MGW Shifter/Tint/Heritage Grill/AVIC Z120 Orion Sub & Amp/Bravado Wheels (20 x9.5/11) Just fast enough ... for now!

I know everyone's entitled to their own opinion, but... That post sounds a lot like what domestic haters say. They see one bad car and decide that's how all domestics are....If you see anything recent by Hyundai/Korea, it's actually quite impressive. I would never ever ever.....ever buy one...like ever, but they have some great products

I agree. Kias are great cars, but I hate them. Hyundais are great and I dont mind them.
