    I just removed the optima letters from my 2016 optima and I used goo gone to get rid of all of the glue but that part of the paint is much whiter than the rest of the car (it's a white car) obviously because it was under the letter. I tried to wash the are with soapy water and a microfiber cloth...

    Has anyone here changed out the trunk lid opening to some struts? So you can fit a couple of infinite baffle subs on the deck? I realize there are other sub options but that's not what this thread is about, so please keep on topic rather than suggest alternate sub locations.

    So anyone got any insight on when/if Seibon will ever finish the carbon fiber trunk lid for the 2014 optima? I have called them a few times and keep getting told they are still developing it, but seriously how many years does it take?!?
  7. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I have noticed on several of the cars I have owned that there are two small strips of velcro on the trunk lid on the outer edges. Does anyone know what these are for? Don

    Has anyone thought about creating a sliding tray cover or lid to cover the hideous cigarette lighter and ipod plug tray area? It would be nice to plop an ipod down there and keep it covered. It would also be nice since it would keep my iPod out of view from potential thieves and out of any...

    I removed the trunk lid liner to replace the reverse bulbs and noticed condensation. My car was rust proofed. Should I ask the dealer to rust proof the inside of the trunk lid?

  12. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    Hey guys, I was wondering if the spoiler below is OEM in Korea? It seems it stretches a lot wider to the actual edges of the trunk as opposed to how they come stock on the SX. Also, anyone have experience buying these from anywhere else? Roof Spoiler 1ea Trunk Lip Spoiler 1ea Total 2ea for...
  13. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    So I know this has been covered in a few random threads -- such as the "Tips, Tricks and Things You May Have Missed" thread, but just in case people haven't read through that, I wanted to point this out. I'm 99% sure that I would have NEVER figured this out on my own, and I benefit from it a...
  14. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    Would anyone be interested in the following items made for our car? We need more aftermarket options but from what i've seen only one person in my opinion "Bluestreak" has shown true interest in taking this car to the next level. I figure if we show genuin interest in items that a large enough...

  16. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Noticed that there was some scratches forming between the trunk lid and the bumper cover, but there was a least a 1/16" gap. Realized this is coming from the compression of the seals as the trunk is being closed, it does contact the bumper cover when closing. The adjustable bumpers at the side...
