    I have a 2012 Optima LX, and I'm trying to install carbon fiber side skirts I bought a few years ago, but it looks like I first need to remove the splash guards infront of the rear wheels. They each have 3 metal screws, but when I loosen them, they just keep spinning and don't come out. And one...

    OK, I have an extra set of rear splash guards. I ordered a set of four on-line. They sent the wrong rear guards. They did not charge me for entire set..*FREE*.. So I am getting the rear set for my EX from local dealer. Does anyone want these rear guards? I'm not 100% what years they...

    Haven't washed or waxed yet, but need to fix some paint chips on the hood and door sills etc. I altered the wheels and added the tint, but otherwise the car is as I bought it used from a private seller. Now I need to figure out what to modify next?

    Just noticed this on my SX when I took delivery.... anyone know or noticed that the rear wheel wells appears to have a fabric/carpet covering instead of plastic? Wouldn't this get wet easily?

    I would like to know if the members that painted their mud/splash guards at home, didd you use any sandpaper (wet/dry) and what # grit did you use to sand the guards. Also, what did you use to buff after the cutting creme?
  14. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    there are several threads that have some who have added the mud guards. My question is Did You Get Them Off Ebay? they have prices from $22 - $63 and yes I understand there is a difference between the LX, EX and then the ones for the SX. Is there any difference in the ones priced? local...

    Hey guys, i have seen a lot of discussion about the mud to install them, painted versus non painted, etc. But I have yet to see anyone comment about whether they actually make a significant difference in keeping your car cleaner. I had them on my last car,an Acura TSX, from day...

    I'm getting ready to install my door guards on my 2012 black SX and would like to hear of any do's or don't prior to installing. I would also like to see some pics on other optimas.
  17. Classified Forum
    If anyone has an extra set that they are not going to use I'd like to take them off your hands. I will be willing to pay $30 shipped. The ones on Ebay are that much... Might as well see if i can help out my fellow Optima brothers before i support China.
  18. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    Is there any difference with the SK mud guards and EX/LX mid guards? And will the SK mud guards fit on the EX?

    Another member painted hus splash guards and I really liked the look. So I went ahead and did it and thought I would do the diffuser also. Paint match is pretty close, sometimes when you look it is dead on and others it looks a little off, but I'm happy with it. Got yhe Paint from this site...
