  1. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Trying to get my stock midpipe off to replace with the quickpower pipe I purchased off another member. One of the bolts, I assume must be stripped as it keeps spinning when I try to take off the nut. The others seemed to be irremovable, and just the nuts come off. The top of it is flat so I...

    I created a new thread below. I've been a member for awhile, just not active. Would like to be able to post but it appears I cannot reply to any posts in the forum. Can a moderator resolve this for me?

    I probably won't be talking much about turbo at all. :D Already so much information out there. I'm mainly interested in peoples' preferences. The Kia 2013 SX was the first car I ever bought, and it holds sentimental value. Built my whole family with that car and its never failed me. I'm gonna be...

    This is my first Kia and it will mainly be used for daily commuting. I can't decide between a 2017 LX with 33k miles or a 2012 SX Turbo with 66K miles. they are roughly the same price. I am leaning towards the SXT since it has nicer interior and seems like it would be funner to drive but the...

    My phone is bluetoothed to my 2016 optima, the media plays just fine but when I make calls it doesn't play through my car. I have been able to bluetooth it just fine to other cars, and I just recently bought a new phone which does the same thing. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
  7. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Don't get me wrong, I really love my S Model, but I wished KIA could offer a EX/ SX/ SX-L with out the Pano Sun Roof, saves a least a grand off the price. If they had that I would probably ended up with the EX w/ premium and tech package. I never used it in my Spectra5 SX and Forte EX. What says...

    If you can find better customer service than this company I would love to see. In 15 years of modding cars I've never experienced a company like this. Hands down a 5 star company in products and service with reliable support when you need it! Thanks guys for everything and helping me whenever I...

    Hi all.I'm new to the world of Optima, having moved over from BMW and Mitsubishi. I have a question regarding the tuning on a non-nav stock radio in a 2014 Optima - the tuning only increases in increments of 0.2 - this means that I cannot hit on 92.0 FM (One of the few English stations here in...

    Hello All, Im struggling to reattach my interior door trim and panel for the side mirror. I broke one blue clip removing the panel. Thank you !
  13. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I've had my 2013 SXL for about two months, and there's one thing keeping me from enjoying it fully; I can't for the life of me find a comfortable position in the drivers seat. No matter how much I tinker around with the power seat settings, something always seems off. Either my feet are too...
  14. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Finally pulled the trigger after a long search and ordered some new wheels/tires for the Hybrid. I went with a pretty simple 5 spoke Drag DR-60 18x8 +35 rim with 245/45-18's...... It just looks awful. To me the tire just looks too chunky for the wheel, makes the wheel look too small, or takes...

    Sometimes my Navi show different place. I was in my home in that picture. But my Navi showed me in the ocean. How can I fix this?
