    New User woohoo. I'll be posting updates as I modify some upgrades into my K5. It's pretty clean and babied by previous driver (family) but there is some curb damage to some wheels. Not too bad overall and barely noticeable. I am pretty happy with the vehicle so far. Anyone have any experience...

  4. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Are there better or more up close photos of the modifications to the tab that you need to cut? I have the PDF but it's a combo of a small photo and my eyes being awful. About to just take it all to a shop and throw the papers at them and let them try since I feel like I'm gonna screw it up if I...

    Hey guys, I cannot find the diagram anywhere in the forums. I see a lot of posts directing people to the kia schematics website, but it seems that it is no longer free (requires subscription?) Does anyone happen to have the diagram? I am looking how it controls the dimming and what each...

  10. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I remember the debate whether or not the EX has daytime running lights. Today, when I went to Butler Kia, when I pulled up to the door I noticed the LED strip lights were on as I could see the reflection in the glass door, even though it was sunny out and my lights were on auto. So I am...

  12. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I have read a couple posts about people complaining their model does not have DRL's. From the research I have done, no current US models, regardless of trim level, have DRL's. Why, I have no idea. KIA adds so many features to the car, you would assume DRL's would be a standard feature, at least...
  13. Hybrids
    Does anyone know a way to get the led positioning lights above the headlights to be in during the day? Seems now they will only come on when the headlights are on. Would be nice for them to be on by themselves during the daytime.
  14. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I've got a 2013 sxl. I'm having a weird issue with my DRLs and blinker. When I use either the left or right blinker the Amber color blinks as it should but alternates with my DRLs. So basically one blinks and other doesn't and they just continue alternating like that. It won't do it every time...
  15. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    I was just wondering if anyone has installed these yet and what wire do you connect to, to make it blink?
