    Here is the gear shift K5 sticker mod. You have to get it centered just right, but mine's on there good. This is a REAL nice interior touch. Its red BTW the flash makes it look a little orange. From eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/191001721363...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

    Next I put on some rear chrome garnish. Simple peel and stick. I like how this looks on the Sonata and several other cars and I think Its on mine to stay.

    Some aluminum foot pedals are a must! The dead pedal is a simple screw in type going right into the plastic flooring, while you have to wrestle with the brake pedal to remove the old and put new in its place. The gas pedal just slides down over the top of stock and its an easy fit. I love how these feel and look, HUGE interior improvement. eBay again: At Fuel Brake Foot Rest Footrest Pedals Fit for Kia K5 | eBay

    Oh and did I mention I picked up a rear glass spoiler from KMP Trade as well. Really like having a glass spoiler, as it adds another dimension to the car. Applies easily with 3m tape. link: Glass Wing Rear Roof Spoiler Fit Kia 2010 2011 2012 2013 Optima K5 | eBay

    Next step was badges of course. I decided to do some 3D K Badging of the hood, trunk and steering wheel. Made sure I got some authentic badges due to all the controversy on the forums. Recommend K5OS:K5 Optima Store - Kia 3.0 K Logo Emblems I decided on a black emblem on the front and a red one on the rear and boy does it look sharp! What do you folks think?

    I also removed the Optima letters on the trunk as well as the model, replacing the Optima with K5 of course!!! And leaving the T-GDI emblem. Looks clean.
