  1. Entertainment: Audio, Navigation, and Electronics
    I'm considering purchasing a 2015 Optima SX that has what appears to be the base radio. I'd really like to have Android Auto in the car. I understand there was an update for the 2015 Optima that adds Android Auto. But I don't think that is for this base radio, right? It's for the nav-radio unit...

  3. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Anyone did this on 2.0 Turbo and has a sound clip? Any issues, codes, etc? I just want a little bit of sound and do it on the budget. I am thinking I need a Magnaflow muffler, a flange, flex pipe and an oval tip, plus a few clamps.
  4. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Trying to decide if it's really worthwhile to go with the ADD W1 V3.3 OCC on my 2018 Optima 2.0T; from what I've seen here and elsewhere, most folks simply choose to go with the single inlet OCC like the W1 V3 (and really, using just the one OCC rather than dual OCC setups some other folks...

    Hey guys, new member here from SC and possible owner of a 2012 Optima SX-T. The car I'm interested in has 45k miles and is going for $16,500 (seems too good to be true).

    Yup. Because this is the place for them. Name is Colin. I'm a one week and a couple days new owner of a 2013 Optima EX in dark cherry for color with just now over 24k miles. Bought the car for a hopeful "reliable" daily/winter driver, that I would not mod to much. But... I've found out that I'll...
  12. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Unfortunately I only had about 10 minutes with it. :cry: Quick Review: From the outside, the car is very well proportioned and sculpted. I think they've done such a great job rounding out the car from the previous generation, making it more sporty and upscale. The wheelbase and overhang are...

    Hello everyone. I have a 2014 SXT which as the nice light 'bars' in the outboard mounted tail lights. However one of the sections (lower 'bar' portion of the drivers' side) is dim / not on. I took it to the dealer, but they wouldn't look at it once they noticed the previous owner had installed...
