  1. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    Anyone know of a place online where they are sold? I liked the fact that it said "OPTIMA" in silver against my silver car, kinda like ghost lettering. Unfortunately, had to have my rear bumper repainted and when they reordered from KIA, the new versions are blank with a small "KIA" in the...

    Hey guys, I am the proud (sarcasm) owner of a 2013 Volkswagen Jetta TDI. With the buyback looming, I've been looking at different cars to see what I'd like to replace it with and so far, I'm leaning heavily toward the 2016 Kia Optima SXL. There are just so many features and it's such a great...

  15. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I'm not sure where to buy these and I think a few posters on here can help. Over the past year I've been working on perfecting my Audio build in my 2014 Optima. I'm to the point that I'm not gaining much with higher end equipment and I'm taking the sound proofing plunge. Part of this will be...

    Newbie here, Car is just a few days old, but I'm looking for info on where people get their oil filters from. I was wondering if there was a website good for kia owners to get maintenance items from that might specialize in kia parts. Thanks.

    My friends call me the unofficial KIA spokesperson. :rolleyes: They can't understand how I could have a S550 parked in the garage and drive a KIA almost daily. I guess they never will. I own a 2010 Forte and a 2013 Optima...looking to add a new 2016.
