  1. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hello my fellow Kia Owners, Long story short I am having to replace my front end and some on the back end. I figured since I’m already doing it what are some swaps I can do that would look good on my Kia. I am replacing my radiator support, bumper cover front and back l, grille, bumper beams...

    Does the 15 optima ex have a digital speedometer? It seems strange that I have avg speed, instant mpg, 2 trips, and etc but no digital speedometer.

    Hey everyone, I'm trying to replace some lug bolts that I accidentally sheared off, thought it would be a simple thing. Turns out, they didn't engineer this hub assembly too well for replacing any lugs very easily. Is there anyway to just pull the hub off without having to remove the entire...

    Hi, I am new to these forums as me and my fiance recently purchased a 2015 Kia Optima SXL a little over 2 weeks ago. It had 120,000 miles, and we expected it to have some slight wear and tear, but we did get a good price for it in our opinion. But when we purchased it, we were told there were...

    Hello all. My fiance and I recently purchased a used 2015 Kia Optima SXL about a couple weeks ago. It is Snow White Pearl and is an absolute beauty! We have always liked the look of the newer Kia Optimas and found them very stylish and cool. We came across a 2015 SXL at an unbelievable price...

    I'm considering purchasing a 2015 Optima SX that has what appears to be the base radio. I'd really like to have Android Auto in the car. I understand there was an update for the 2015 Optima that adds Android Auto. But I don't think that is for this base radio, right? It's for the nav-radio unit...

    I just replaced the two front calipers on my Optima, and I have a hugely squishy pedal. I bled the two front lines, and when I do, the driver side comes out yellowish and flows smoothly, no air bubbles. Let me go back a little bit. The reason why I am changing the calipers is that the...

    Hello, I have little concern with my MPG and I have a feeling I am getting lower MPG than it should. My car comes with 2.0 Hyundai Nu Engine (which they distribute for Asia and some Europe market I believe). Since I drive mostly on rush hours to commute to my work, the traffic is quite bad...

    The first time I ever came across lap3 was when I met a good friend of mine. I met him through Facebook where I had no idea someone tuned with a KIA lived 15 minutes away. I had owned the car for a year and was not aware of the platform for optimas. After a good long conversation with him about...
