    Hey guys, I have a 2013 optima EX, I believe it has the 2.4L GDI engine. 61k miles. I work in sales so I drive a lot.

    I live in Lake Forest, CA and just got a bright silver 2013 Optima LX. No packages, just the base model, but love it just the same. It's amazing, the only things my Optima doesn't have that my old 2006 Acura TL did are leather and navigation. And there are a number of things it has the TL...
