  1. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    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...

    Hey, crew. I live in a state where I need a license plate to be displayed on the front of my car. I'm trying to maintain the integrity of the front end without putting a license plate front and center. Anyone know of any OFF CENTER license plate mounts for a 2016 optima FE?

    Anybody have this?!/BOZZmount-HG-LOWER-HORIZONTAL-GRILLE-NO-DRILL-LICENSE-PLATE-BRACKET/p/110722372/category=0 Since we don't have a tow hook, I've been looking at alternatives since I'm not a huge fan of the plate on the front bumper (I'm from Ontario, so a...
  4. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Hi, I have a 2016 SXL that has never had a front license plate. It only has 2 tiny indentations where holes can be drilled in the bumper for a front plate. I called a local Kia dealer about ordering a proper license plate bracket, but was told they are only sold with new cars - no possible...
  5. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    I've looked all over, but for the life of me I can't find how to remove the license plate bulbs and vanity bulbs in my 2016 Optima. I'm afraid of breaking the housings or messing up the car. Anyone know where there's a walk through for the 2016+ models? Thank you in advance.

    So I search on this forum, only found one post related. Just wondering if anyone has a front license plate re-locator using the tow hook? I found this one online via ebay FRONT BUMPER TOW HOOK MOUNTING LICENSE PLATE RELOCATION BRACKET FOR 20X2.5 | eBay
  7. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I noticed this for the first time the other day on my '12 SX when my trunk was open and I was standing about 10 feet away. Has anyone else seen corrosion near their license plate lights and trunk release button? I think the anti-corrosion warranty is 6 years/100K miles. Would this be covered...

    Where are you guys getting your license plate LED bulbs from? I looked on the k5optimastore and could only find the entire interior kit which I don't want. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk ---------- Post added at 08:28 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:27 PM ---------- Disregard this...

    Anyone know of one? Apparently KIA doesn't make one anymore for the '16, and I can't find any on Ebay.
  10. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    I have been looking around for a license plate locator that goes on the towhook instead of having to drill through the bumper. No success. All I see are for the Genesis and VTs. Can anyone show me a link towards a license plate relocator for the Optimas? Or are they the same with the Genesis and...

  13. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    Hey all. Just picked up, my SX-T from a Provience that doesn't require front plates mounted. With the excitement of the car pick up I didn't even think to ask about the front plate bracket since Ontario law requires it. Now that the car is home I have to find some brackets. I'd like to make sure...

    My license plate bulbs are bright just not bright enough. Where did you get yours and are they the brightest you've seen? I wanna get a new set of bulbs but don't know which ones are worth getting because mine shines on the plate but I see some peoples on here and it seems to be so bright that...

    Has anyone installed new License plate LEDs on a 2015 Optima? My question is how do you access the bulb. The owner's manual says to remove the trunk cover, but I also see a DYI video (for a 2013 or older Optima) showing that you can pop the lens cover off from outside which seems a lot easier. I...
