  2. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I have a 2013 Kia Optima. I bought used and it already had HIDs installed when I got it for the low beams and fog lights. I know the low beams do have projectors but I’m curious does the 2013 EX come stock with HIDS or does it use regular H11b halogens and the projectors are more just for...
  3. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Installed some TOAUTO 3D 360 degree LED bulbs in my stock housings back before Christmas bc I was frustrated by my inability to see at night. I never do reviews or brag about many things but I have to say for under $50 these bulbs have been amazing. I’m sure there are better bulbs out there but...

    So basically! I’ve done my headlights recently(do custom headlights on the side) well my Kia headlights blew up like everyone with a Kia Optima wants some built! I recently got two going on! Well about to start on them! And it’s funny how these shops around here charge 1k-1.4k for a build like mine.

  7. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I feel like this may be a stupid question, but I could have sworn the LED DRLs are typically on when the headlight switch is set to "Auto", but today I noticed they were not on unless I manually switch it to the running lights on the control stalk. Has this always been the case?
  8. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hi everyone, I don't post here very often but I have a question concerning headlights. I have a 2011 LX. The stock halogen lowbeams are a bit underwhelming at times, I make relatively frequent trips on long dark highways at night, and I use my highbeams when I can but those would undoubtedly...
  9. The Service Center
    I was looking at KIA’s parts website and it lists the different headlight setups and it listed the ones with LED, HID as being compatible with my car. Mine has the two low beam projector lights and two standard high beams. They all use halogen. My question is, is it possible to buy the...

  11. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    My 2011 Optima passenger side headlight has been appearing dim on the projection out. I took it to the dealership for an estimate. They wanted to replace the whole headlight at a cost of over $1000 claiming it was a flaw in the projection element saying that the glue between the glass for...
  12. The Service Center
    Hi there, My HIDs are so dim, it's unsafe to drive at night. I'm not sure if it's the bulbs themselves going out or the actual assembly, because in the research I've been doing I've found posts that talk about how the actual headlight assemblies were poorly built. Am I looking at replacing the...

    Forgive me if this has previously been posted, and I just overlooked it. If so, let me know where I can find it. I have always been a fan of those strips of LED running lights, and I really like the ones on the Optimas. When I purchased my 2018 Optima S I didn't realise they had those on the...
