    I just got my 2015 optima a month ago and it was completely stock. I started with cheaper upgrades first. I put 15% window tint all the way around besides windshield, replaced the emblems with 3.0 k logos from k5 optima store as well as the k5 air valve stem caps. I just finished the last thing...

    So I have a 2011 SX. 174000 miles on it. Had to replace the shocks/struts and since there are no good normal options I went with the Street Plus Coilovers. (Not happy with them but I'll figure what the **** I'm gonna do with that soon). But now my car is showing signs that I need to replace the...
  9. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I'm mechanically inclined and have repaired various AC systems on cars, but I'm a little puzzled at the Optima. After buying new in 2012 the AC needed bit of a charge, so I used temp pressure chart and my gauges to add a can of 134a. This got it pretty much right on the money. The AC was blowing...
