In case anyone was wondering what it looks like, here's my black Sport without the badges and with the Hyundai logo blacked out.

That looks really good. What exhaust is that? Also, I see in your build you put in new head lights, did you have to go in through the wheel well? How was installing that?

He has a custom exhaust from a muffler shop... You can attempt to go through the wheel well but it is very tight and they're are two screws that need to be removed inside the headlight housing to remove the stock bulbs and ballasts. Easiest way to replace them is to drop the bumper and pull the entire headlight assembly of the car. That way you have easy access to the dust cap and screws inside. Headlight comes out with the removal of three screws on top. And 2 easy clips on the bottom. Bumper removal is also easy, 6 clips on top, 6 in bottom, 4 in each wheel well and 1 screw in each wheel well

@Deep6 summed it up nicely. The HIDs are coming today so I haven't installed them yet.

In regards to my exhaust, I had a muffler and resonator delete done at a local muffler shop.

Goo gone will not hurt the paint. I've done this before on my 2011. I will do it again this weekend on the ES. I like how it looks from the posts above. "Blackened Elantra" with Metallica pouring out of the speakers on the way to See Metallica on Jully 5th!!!!

Any fear / chance of goo gone hurting the paint? I want to remove the badges this weekend but want to do it right. :)
As a professional detailer who uses it almost daily, I can unequivocably say... no. It will not hurt the paint. I will never, ever give out advice that will cause harm to a car. :)

Heat with hairdryer, remove with fishing line or dental floss, clean up any remaining adhesive with goo gone.
I just used dental floss to remove the badges, no heat gun is needed. used nail to remove the remaining glue, it was so much easier than I thought. maybe its because the car is still rather new and the glue was still very soft.

I was wondering what you used to get the rear emblem looking like that. Did you do the front too?
Some people have removed it and painted it, others (like myself) have just masked off the area and used Plasti Dip or Auto Dip. If you don't like it, just give it a good rub and it'll come off.
