    What's up fellow owners? Am new to this deal and have already spent countless hours researching mods on OF and around the interwebs. Living in Augusta, Ga and hoping to learn about more of us in the Southeast. Just bought my first Kia 2 weeks ago and its a 2013 Satin Metal Optima SX-T-GDI with tech and prem touring pkgs. Got the windows tinted with 3M color stable 35% one week ago and windshield done in Air blue 80. Am good with the 3M (wished i'd have gone darker but scared of the po-po) but the AB 80 is a little too hazy at night and the rainbows with polarized sunglasses during the day are annoying. Love this car though. Went from a 2011 VW jetta SE to this quick and solid machine. My first noob issue to post about is posting to regular forums like this Utune groupbuy announced today. Must have missed a rule or some step about noobs replying to threads if there is one. But I want Utune so I PM'd KK....I think it's Will over there right? Stoked about the tune!Also got my eyes set on the FTSB strut bar and stiff rings and led fog lights as first mods. Glad to be here. -Will K.

    Welcome!

    You will definitely like the FTSB and stiff rings. They really liven up the car and take some of the "looseness" out of the front end.

    Let me know how the UTUNE works for you. Would love to get it but it doesn't work with our Canadian models.

    Thanks, David for your welcome, your forgiveness for my mixing you up with Will at KK, and for adding me to the list for the Utune group buy. Hoping we get to 15. Sorry about the mixup with Will at KK. Such a rookie thing to do. But am glad to be on here and getting in on the action. This is my first time having a car that I am totally stoked about. Sometimes I just stare at it. Okay, a lot of times I do. Is that normal? LOL.

    Thanks, tooslow! Glad to be here and will definitely post about the UTUNE once it's available for the 13s and I get it flashed over. Am curious what type of differences between US and Canadian models prevent your using it?

    Hey Kennedy,

    Welcome to the forums!!

    Wait a minute, is your name actually will K? Is your last name Kennedy?

    There are some crazy coincidences happening right now, so I HAD to clarify.

    My Initials are Will K.

    and my oldest daughters name is Kennedy, lol.

    -Will
