  2. Steering Mode Discussion - **Dealer Change Only**

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    So I went in for another 3k mile oil change and decided to inquire about the steering "modes" I've heard about. The service advisor knew what I was talking about to my surprise and had another advisor come out with a tablet and cable. SA with tablet and cable hooks up the car and tells me I am...

  11. K&N Filter and turbo spooling sound

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    So I got the drop in K&N filter the other day and I noticed the spooling sound. It sound like it stutters a bit while it's winding up. Is this normal? This is my first vehicle with a turbocharger on it so, yes, I am a turbo noob. Also, not sure if the filter was worth it although the...
  12. [ALL] : Compliments and Confusions - Share Your Story!

    3RD Generation Optima (2011-2015)
    So far I have gotten my car parked up front almost a dozen times at the Wynn, Bellagio, Red Rock and MGM next to the exotics at the valet. Every valet driver has complimented the vehicle or asked what it is. And when they pull it up for you, everyone waiting stares. Definitely has a nice sense...

  14. [ALL] : Who likes their OEM tires?

    Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Grip is my main gripe... There is a nice corner I should be able to hit at 60-70 mph with these "performance" tires and when I get close to those speeds my front tires want to wash out. Also, the tires tend to spin too much and chirp out when I take off after stopping at an intersection.
  15. [SX] : Cool Air + 2.0T = DAYUM!

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    I notice this every time I drove to SoCal from Vegas... It's getting cooler in Vegas too.
  16. [ALL] : Who likes their OEM tires?

    Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    18" Hankook Optimo; approx 6900 miles - It's an okay tire. Nothing special. They do the job. Just wish they were a little "stickier".
