    I just remembered, I was followed into a parking lot by another optima and you got out of your car and asked me about my LED 3.0 badges. I told you where I got them. I didn't think to ask if you were on the forum as I was in a rush!

    So I woke up this morning to do an early inspection to the car before dropping the kids off to school and I found this. Someone hit it or kicked it from the looks of it. And the worst part is, I went to get it checked by a collision center and they are quoting me $1500 for the whole bumper. Is...

    I just registered here, I bought a new 2013 Kia Optima a week ago after my local Kia dealership tried to destroy my 2012 Kia Soul during a routine oil change appointment. I had a roof rack with Kayak on top of the car, and the mechanic didn't wait for the automatic garage door to finish opening...

  15. United States Georgia at least. I moved to Midtown Atlanta this week and I've seen more Optima SXLs around the metro area in the past few days of living here than I ever did in Dallas since I've owned the car. I've seen just SXLs in Vinings, Smyrna, Buckhead, Midtown, and somewhere around I-85 & I-285...

    The day I was dreading has arrived. Some horse's ass left his door imprint on my shiny new Optima overnight. :cry: It's small and not world-ending by any means, but no less aggravating for a new car owner.:angry: How do you guys handle these uncontrollable elements of car care? And what are some...
