    Hi, I got this 2017 Optima PHEV EX with Tech Pkg. Upon my check online, there are two types of factorial remote start module. D5F57-AC201 and D5F57-AC001 Both module is 'said' to be compatible with Optima PHEV. So did anybody really installed a remote start to a PHEV/Hybrid 4th gen Optima? I...

    So... I got a new Android Auto installed last week. As much as I wanted to try out the Telsa Style tablet, I ended up getting this one from KiriNavi The first Android player installed recently went out on me. This new one does not have an optical drive (CD/DVD). However the screen is bigger, at...

    I've replaced my drain plug with a "Fumoto F-106N Engine Oil Drain Valve" ($25 at Amazon). I attach a clear plastic hose to the valve, turn the spring-loaded lever, and drain my oil straight into a container or catch basin. Previously the oil shot back pretty far behind the plug and inevitably...

    IT'S FINALLY DONE! It may have cost an arm and a leg and a lot of looking at water/saving lives (my job is lifeguarding) but it was totally worth it! This is my first mod to my car. Its crazy I got these tail lights before badges, I don't know what I was thinking! Haha. The LED Tail Lights...

    Just installed my New Faces shift knob on my '15 SXL. Install was a bit involved, but not too bad. Got the hazard button to work. For all of you who don't know, the hazard button has to be tied into the wiring behind the air condionioner to the black wire coming from the New Faces module. Mine...
  10. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Been doing a lot of research on a Homelink for my 16 SX. Saw a 14 Homelink on EBay with the seller 10 minutes from work. I went and pick it up today for $75. Seller said I could bring it back if it did not work. Just plug and play. Program the garage door and recalibrated the compass. Works...
  11. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hello guys, few weeks ago, I posted a thread about spark plugs issue, and I finally installed the HKS Plugs, and LAP3 chip(93 octane) installed in my 2017 Sonata 2.0T. I went to the shop and asked to set the gap for 0.028 and plugged the chip. After it is done, I've driven the car with chip...
  12. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Hi guys, i have a favor to ask any one of you guys that currently own a kia optima 2015 or 2016 any style. Can you guys take a picture of the back of the rear view mirror with homelink to show me the exact model number that rear view mirror is? I have the part number from the kia website but...
  13. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    After a long wait for a Korean style bumper and an hour or so of wiring I finally got the fog lights and vent lights installed. Pictures will be below but they do not do these lights any justice, they are clearly visible during the day and I don't feel the pictures show that. I would say it...

    hey guys I'm going to install a double din pioneer unit and a backup camera, I was wondering if anyone has done it and if so how did you route the wire for the camera? more specific how did you get it into the trunk? I don't really see any type of hole I can use so do I have to put it through...

    I was looking into ordering a roadrunner v1 grill from the k5Optima store but says it only fits up to the 2013 Optimas. Is there a big difference between 2013 to 2015 grills? I can't seem to find any info on anyone who have attempted to install or retrofit it. If anyone has any information on...

    Got it in the mail today from David at K5Optima and couldn't wait any longer to install so I decided to do it in my garage at midnight. I hope I aligned it correctly lol. Thoughts?
  17. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I got some bright LED H1 bulbs to replace the kind of lame halogen high-beams. They aren't that bright and look kind of silly color-wise since they run at the same time as my HID lows. I cannot for the life of me figure out how you're supposed to install these things. The Optima plug doesn't...
  18. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Just got done putting on the factory mudflaps. Took about 30 minutes. Definitely need a right angle drive to get to the screws for the rear unless you remove the wheel. The fronts are easier as you can turn the wheel left and right to access the two mounting points. You turn it one direction to...

    Hello guys! I installed the HKS BOV version 4 today in my 2016 Optima. Had to do some moving around with the vacuum tubes and sensors but I got it installed mostly. Only thing is I can't tighten down the bottom left hex nut that came in the kit. There simply isn't enough room to get an allen...
