    I put a set of 17" Motegi MR7's on my '15 LX recently. They were used so they have some road rash on them. Does anyone know a good color match for gunmetal? I have tried contacting Motegi but they have yet to reply. Edit: Before I get roasted...I know I don't have center caps on. Set...
  2. Engine and Technical Discussion
    So I hope this is the appropriate spot for this thread. Does anybody know what transmissions can be paired with the optimas 2.4lt engine or know where I could find that information? For example I know Kia makes an AWD transmission but would that match the 2.4 engine or would you need a custom...

    Just an FYI Vvivid Vinyl is nearly a dead match for Kia EB. I scraped the side of my factory side skirt on the passenger side. I was too cheap to re-paint (I'm having my body kit side skirts painted, so it'll cover them up when I install the new skirts.) So.. for a temp fix, I decided to wrap...

    I have been looking for good quality fog lights to match my HIDS. I can't seem to find any blub that matches properly. They are either too white/yellow or illegally blue. Someone out there has to have a color that matches. Please give me a brand or link to purchase. Thank you so much.
  7. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Is it possible to have wheels custom painted to exactly match the paint color of the vehicle? If so, who does this? It's been pretty hard to find wheels to match. Bronze wheels aren't exactly the color of the vehicle when looking around. Maybe Hyper Black, Matte Bronze, or something? What do...
  8. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    Hey guys so just wondering what you guys think I should do. I just got the sx cluster for my car and I don't have the bezel. I was wondering if it would be a smart idea to cut the middle of the ex bezel to match up the sx cluster instead of buying it. I know how expensive it is to buy the bezel...

    Most interested in how a white rear diffuser would look on a white SX, but any color would do to get an idea of the look. Thanks!
  13. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    Like the title says. I have some switchback LED's and am curious to which K aftermarket HID's would best match since the factory HID's almost look yellowish next to the LED's. Thanks!

    Was washing my SWP Optima SXL today and noticed a distinct off white to grayish tint to both the front and rear bumpers when compared to the rest of the car. Yes the bumpers are plastic vs. Metal but so are almost every other car. Why the lack of color consistency in the paint? Anyone else...

    I ordered some DRLS and the housings for the FOGLIGHT/DRL do not match my ebony black 11 optima. They are more mat. What paint have you guys used when painting your housings to match the car color?
