3000 miles on my G80 Ultimate and it just keeps getting better. No problems or complaints at all. Not as quiet as my S550, but close and nearly as comfortable. I love this car.

Sweet. Have you made any changes to it yet or do you plan on making any changes or modifications?
I would like to remove the winged emblems so people stop asking me if it is a Chrysler. I imagine they are just on with adhesive.

Front emblems are typically installed with pins behind them to my knowledge whereas majority of the rear badges are put on with adhesive. So I would double check with that first just to be safe.

You can always call up the local Hyundai dealer and ask the parts department if they can tell you if there are pins. Often they can pull up a diagram or grab an emblem off the shelf and see physically whats on the back.

Good luck, keep us posted.

Most of the time you just need a hair dryer, floss, maybe goo gone and patience for badge removals. Best to do it soon or else the paint under the emblem won't be as discolored as the rest of the car and stand out.

Goo gone almost all of the time but I would use the automotive grade goo gone as the regular one has been known to cause issues if you were let it sit for too long or whatever. I would also get some polishing compound handy just to hand buff it clean so it'll blend a bit better

that's not much of an issue, all you have to do is park out in the sun, then follow that up with either you or a detailer polishing/compounding/etc. the paint periodically, which should be done regardless.

Polishing and compounding the paint shouldn't be done periodically. If you maintain it properly after the first time it gets done, you don't need to re-visit the polishing and compounding stages for a very long time. Every time you compound and polish, you're shaving away a few microns of clear coat, depending on the car, sometimes you really don't have much to play with.

didn't realize that would be bad but looking into why, it removes paint, so yeah I can see what you mean.
better to get it done once and do all you can to minimize the amount of special treatment required for the paint, saves us from spending more since good detailers aren't cheap.
