  2. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Want to install a magnetic drain plug on the Optima, but found conflicting information on the brand I always use (GoldPlug. No affiliation). They don't list the Optima, but list both the Sportage 2.0T and Sonata 2.0T. However, they list 2 different plugs, both 14mm: AP-08 for the Sportage, and...

Doing well for a second gig, but realized that between the +80 mile commute everyday for the day job and the ton's of hrs behind the wheel driving as a second job, I'm worried I might wear the old girl out! I'm not sure who's run the most miles...
