    Arrow Ride Of The Month : November 2014 - Dively



    Congratulations to Dively for winning November's Ride Of The Month!



    1. The Driver

    Name:
    John Dively

    Age:
    26

    Location:
    Bothell, Washington

    Profession:
    Network Engineer

    Hobbies:
    Spending time with family and friends

    Previous Cars:
    05 Kia Spectra, 97 Ford Explorer, 92 Civic Hatchback, 94 Integra, 79 Dodge Ramcharger







    2. The Car


    When did Kia first gain your attention?
    When I found out how good of a value they were.

    Why did you choose to buy your Optima?
    I knew I couldn’t get more for my money than if I bought an Optima. It’s a no brainer in my opinion. No other car beats the features and quality you get for the price.

    What other cars have you modified?
    All of my cars get the 5% tint treatment and I upgrade the stereo system.

    Where do you get your inspirations/ideas for your car from?
    The forum has been a great place for ideas and inspiration.

    What are your future plans for your Optima?
    Front lip, sideskirts, and a new rear diffuser. After that I will be sending her into paint and probably powder coating the rims. Maybe some custom work on the front lights at some point too.

    What’s your favorite thing about modding your Optima?
    Setting it apart from other Optimas.

    And the least favorite?
    $

    What would you tell others to convince them to drive/buy an Optima?
    It drives almost as good as it looks
