    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?

    <p class="p1">It’s no secret that there are a TON of smartphone mounts on the market right now, and given the sheer volume of dirt cheap offerings available across the web, it’s not always easy to separate quality from the junk that isn’t worthy of holding your long-dead 1st gen Motorola Razr...

    Hello folks, can anyone tell me the advantage (if there is one), for paying $250 for the SoundMan iPad mini mount, when there seems to be some good ones out there for less than 1/2 of that? Thanks ahead of time, Shep

I used it with an iPhone mount that I moved to my new car, this was the best phone mount that I have ever had, and I have another for my new car and wife's. Anyway, looking to sell this one, no broken tabs...

    When installing the motor mount inserts, what are you guys using to support the motor? Jackstands? I've not yet crawled under to see how it looks, but I'm assuming you have to remove the motor mounts, one at a time. The motor needs to be supported, correct? I read the DIY, but it was never made...

    Going to be buying a set of coil-overs for springtime. Running springs now, so I'm familiar with how the front struts install, as well as rear spring perches. Thing is, I'm not sure how to access the upper rear shock mount. Do I have to remove the rear seat? (how easy is that?) Or is it under...
