    Looks great. I love my Horizon Blue EX, although if you don't wax it it'll look terrible in less than a week, at least for me. Heck, even now mine looks like $hit from the rain earlier this week and had to put off washing in case it rained again...ugh.

    With that said, Horizon Blue is definitely the sharpest Optima color in my opinion.

    Although, why do you have EX wheels on your LX? Did they come like that when you bought?

    Very nice indeed! Blue is my favorite color and I had the chance to buy one but I had three reasons for going SWP. #1, never had a White car and #2, Carolina Sun in the late spring to late Fall was a killer in my Black Forte. The Heat was more manageable in my Wife's Forte and #3, Black was a Bear to keep clean.
    So what's next? DRL/Headlight Trim Lights?...........................

    Let's see....Sport Pedals, LED tail lights, rear reflector repeaters, interior lighting set, pin stripe, K&N intake, center armrest tray,...
    That's just the start...:-)
    I just need a bigger purse.

    You need to re-badge your Model from LX to LXL or LX-L or LXS, that's what I would do if I installed the Mods you are doing ( that would keep people guessing!). I Have the Mud Guards, just have to install them. Going to tint but I'm looking hard at the Dual Exhaust like you have and that should (?) do it for me.....................

    My LX came with the 17" wheels. The tire pressure decal inside the door lists the 17" wheels too. We looked through the 2017 sales brochure and it shows only the 16" wheels for the LX with no other wheel options yet my car came with them. Interestingly...If you look in the exhaust IPB for the LX model it shows 4 center mufflers for the LX - and the difference is what wheel size the car came with - 16" or 17" and ULEV/SULEV engine?!?!

    17" wheels must be a low key "secret menu" option that the dealer can order from the manufacturer for the LX.

    Nice Mods you've done to your Optima so far, me likes! The only thing I've done so far was adding the Spare Tire Kit, next will be the Auto Dimming Mirror, I miss that from the Forte I had.................
