  1. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    My wife rear ended someone with my car and they took off-we have insurance but I’m not gonna use it since the damage is minimal. Any advice for where to purchase a new front bumper would be great-prices range from $120-500 and I would love to know who has the best fit. I am exploring the...

  6. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    The grill turbo badge for my 2016 Optima arrived on Monday. I watched the install video on the vendor's web site but it's for a 2015 or earlier Optima and a panel that needs to be removed will not come out as shown in the video. I'm probably missing something simple but I don't want to...
