    I tried to install some led Fog lights the other day and when I did the headlights won't turn on! Had to disconnect the battery and wait like 5 min then rebook up the battery headlights worked then but I had already tooknout the led bulbs. Any info on this would help thanks! 2015 optima sx.
  2. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Fellow owners of 2016+ Optima cars, this thread is to discuss and gain some info on the tires that your car came equipped with to find out if this latest version of the Optima has tires you find sufficient or rather a good fit for the car. My personal insight on the past 2 models was that the...
  3. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Hi everyone, I've been searching everywhere for a cold air intake for my 2.4L 2016 Optima but no company has made one yet. I contacted K&N about making one and I'm hoping if enough people request it they will do it. Here is a link to request a new part:Request a K&N Product for Your Vehicle...

    So I went ahead and did my first true mod to my amazing Optima. A simple Injen cold air intake install. Boy that new sound is heavenly though. Before I post pics I just want to take a second to thank K5 Optima Store, specifically David, they were awesome to buy from. Now pics:

    So, starting shopping in about the last month, have the choices pretty much narrowed down to the 2012 sonata limited 2.0t or the 2012 optima sx. Which should I get, and why? I've got three daughters, on the road a lot for soccer tournaments and such, but sure do like the idea of having...

    Hello to the Optima world.!!! My name is Chris and I recently purchased a 2015 optima SX (Black) and I'm ready to get this thing on the floor (Not Stanced but Fun). I previously was a Service advisor for KIA and when I got the chance I purchased one. I'm trying to read up on the TruHart...
  7. Entertainment: Audio, Navigation, and Electronics
    I'm wondering what my options are, to upgrade my audio system on my car. I don't want anything super crazy, I just miss having some bass, and the stock audio system is lacking. All the stuff I see, says I'll lose my hand-free calling option. Anyone here get the upgraded audio on their 2014...

    Bridgestone DriveGuard Run Flat Tires Accommodating, Comfortable and Safe Do you remember your last flat tire? Were you driving when it happened? Who were you with? I asked a coworker, Jenna, if she had ever experienced a flat tire while driving and this is what she recalled: “I was...
  10. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Just as the thread states. I've seen a couple of media photos of my Lane Warning/Traction Control/Heated Steering wheel and I'm convinced mine was switched. Not that it's a big deal if it was, just makes me wonder about the QC. What I've generally seen is from left to right; Traction Control...

    With the 2015 Hyundai Sonata reveal coming this month, I figured we could all start speculating on what the next Optima might have. I saw there was a thread on HP, but this one can be more about everything. 2015 Hyundai Sonata gets a shadowy preview - Autoblog Judging by what Hyundai has said...

  13. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    So I've had my car for just about 8 months now and have already had some stupid crap happen to it, and maybe a stupid move on my part or two as well.. Firstly, within a month of getting this car, I was not used to the low clearance of a car, as my past two vehicles have been trucks. Well I...

  15. Entertainment: Audio, Navigation, and Electronics
    ...unless I'm on my 'media' audio setting and then it will play through the speakers. In my old vehicle it would connect to bluetooth and still receive calls and everything through the car but when I got a text it would sound THROUGH MY PHONE and not only the iPhone audio 'setting' (media...
