    Dear members, I am new on this forum. My name is Rem and I am living in Canada. My wife had a 2018 Optima EX hybrid as a company car and I really liked this car which was equipped standard with front and back leds (at least for stop and tail lights). Since she returned the car, I bought a...

    Hello, This is my first post so please go light on me, although open to constructive criticism in terms of how to categorize or what info to include from the jump. I'll try and keep this short. I failed Virginia State Inspection because my front blinker lamps do not stay on per my DRLs or my...

    Hello! I've been having issues with my led side marker lights. When I bought my 2013 SX 1.5 years ago, the side markers were out. Bought some t10 bulbs and replaced them and they worked great for about 7 months. They started flickering so I replaced them. Since then, every 2 weeks or so one...

    So I have a 2013 optima EX. From my understanding this year and model does not come with HIDs stock but they do have the right type of head light housing that won’t blind people if you choose to use HIDs/LEDs ? I believe they are projectors ? What type of lighting comes stock in my car ? For...

    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...

    I’m tired of my plain Tail lights and have been interested in possibly getting a set of the hybrid model LED Tail lights. Would these fit on my Kia? I saw someone was selling a set a while back and I was like DAMMIT!!! Found some Used ones on EBay though. I can’t afford a new set for 800 😔...

  14. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    I have a 2020 Optima LX and wanted to switch out my tail lights to LED style to change its look. Does anyone know if I purchase tail lights for a 16-19 EX/SX would that fit? Wanted to replace the entire pieces instead of just switching out the bulbs.

  16. DIY : Appearance And Body Modifications
    Recently, I switched over to Diode Dynamics for the side marker switchbacks I'm using. I used to use a dual row design, but it was never weatherproofed properly, and my own efforts never worked out quite right... So, here's what I switched to: HD LED Switchback Strip (Single) x2 Here's what...

    Sorry, I know there are tons of LED posts but I can't find an answer anywhere. I'm looking to replace my standard halogen with LED. There is limited space in the headlight housing for bulbs, and I assume that not all LEDs will fit with the fan/heatsink. What is the max bulb length that I...

They absolutely destroy all other...

    I use to put LED bulbs in the factory housings on all my cars for the license lights, but recently, companies have been making actual LED housings that are direct fit for the license lights. I have similar lights on my 2014 Escape and bought my 2015 Optima SXL a couple weeks ago and found some...
