    New Member!

    Hello, my name is Hamza and I own a White Kia Optima LX. I donít have any mods on at the moment, only the K emblems (front & back), and a ducktail spoiler. Iím planning to add a new cat-back exhaust, cold air intake, better performance spark plugs, bigger rims, carbon fiber hood and maybe a carbon fiber trunk. Iím also a full-time student attending high school and West-Mec Avitaion Maintenance Technology. I live in Surprise, Arizona and I hope to find a lot of resources because at first I didnít even know people modded their Kia optimas lol.

    Accidents happen, just glad no one was hurt, but as it looks like a SWP Kia, keep a good eye on the paint job when the car is done. SWP is a bear to match and most don't do a very good job, especially if a trained eye views the finished product. When we purchased ours, the fellow had hit a deer necessitating the painting of the bumper and both fenders. He thought it was a great job, but could see the difference in the fenders/doors. I painted the rear cover, but took quite a few tests to make it, let's say a perfect match.

    At least with yours, they'll probably paint the 1/4, doors, and fender so no difference is seen.

    Good luck.
