    OK everyone, I thought I'd try here as my Google searches didn't reveal much useful. I have a 2017 Optima PHEV (I don't think the PHEV part matters for this purpose). So let's say I am listening to music from my phone via bluetooth. Done driving, turn the car off. Next time I get in the car...

    Hi all, satellite radio stopped getting signal recently and I know it's because of the shark fin. I noticed it was loose/wobbly a few months back and then recently I disassembled it in order to vinyl wrap my roof. I found that two of the 4 screws holding the rubber base onto the shark fin were...

    I am new to the forum . I want to know why they say K5 instead of kia optima ? I think that in other countries the car range is called k ?

    Just had the 5050 DRLs installed on Saturday. The same ones that everyone is buying. However, they don't appear very bright (I'll have to compare them side by side with factory DRLs to know with certainty that they're brighter) and the color seems 4500K (has a yellowish tint) instead 5000K...

    I want to replace my alarm horn with a siren so it will chirp instead of honk when you lock the doors and wail instead of honking when it goes off. I pretty much know the steps I need to take to make it happen, but I was wondering if anyone else had already done this. Thanks!

    I ordered the set of PIAA 400 and 500 hz horns, but I am thinking of just installing one horn instead of both. Is this ok or do I have to install both. I saw the other pages on DIY horn upgrades but I was wondering if I would get a better sound with just the 500 hz horn installed. Please let me...
  7. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I cannot remember if I MIGHT have gone through a car wash with the Rain-X wash option selected.. But considering how much I hate rain x and have had problems with it in the past I'm not sure why I would do such a thing.. But it's in my mind like I might have done it once before in my optima...
  8. New Member Introductions
    I went to the dealership to buy a Forte and the salesman suggested me buy an Optima. And was one of the best decisions ever. Every day I love this car more and I only hope to have an extra budget each month to add something new to it.
  9. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    I am asking because it is already in California (not Korea!!) , is already painted, and is only $109. (Buy it Now). I was disappointed when I saw that it was a bolt on. Has anyone bought one like this, but used tape instead? Please let me know if any of you have possibly purchased this, or a...
