    I love it. I act like I'm not paying attention. Then I peel off smiling from ear to ear.

    After some shopping yesterday, returned to my car, parked in the street, there's a guy giving the car the once over. He's standing near the front of the car as I hopped in and started her up. The DRL's lit up like a Christmas tree and he took a step back and uttered one word....WOW! I'm pretty sure he was impressed.

    Made my day.

    I get sooo many looks especially since not that many people have optimas in my area.

    I get so many looks cause of my super dark tints while everyone else is following the law of 35% or less. And then the confused looks from people wondering which make the car is. I was literally standing in the doorway of a store and there was a guy and his white walking around in circles trying to figure out what it is. Then they saw OPTIMA on the back and figured it out. Soooo..... I took off the OPTIMA and GDI .

    I wish I had a good answer when some people actually end up asking me what car it is. I don't know why but I hate saying it's a KIA.
