  1. Entertainment: Audio, Navigation, and Electronics
    On my 2015 Optima, the terminals on the battery are covered in fancy plastic housings (my first car that has had this as most older cars just had the terminals out in the open). When connecting your amp's power cable, did you remove this power terminal housing or maybe cut a hole into for your...

    Hi all, I'm trying to figure out the best location to hook up a sub amp power and ground on the car. I have a 2013 SX. I'm planning on putting the amp in the trunk. I'm on my second attempt at making the audio in my car sound better. My first set up was a Sundown SA-10 and a CT Sounds 750.1...

    Hey folks, I am looking for a picture of the beam pattern of the OEM HID headlights, unmodified and unadjusted, on the 2014+ Optimas against a wall. Maybe from about 20-30 feet away. Thank you! Just need some comparison pictures. I would be interested in the pictures from the 2013 and older...

    I know almost everyone has these but I figure it is raining, and I am bored. Really though, thanks K5 Optima Store for the nice quality frames, and thank you to Karbon Koncepts for the (3 piece) Cooltrade c/f pattern badges.:thumbsup: I didn't bother uploading the front picture. I do want to...

    Here for all to share. Picture is taken off from the Malaysian Optima facebook page. Somehow, number 2's side profile just gives off the M3 impression. But personally, I find number 1 appeals to me the most. Bigger resolution here

  15. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I spotted a pic on here somewhere of a Spicy Red with DRL's. What set this one apart was the fog light / DRL housing was painted red. Can someone please direct me where this picture is? I just ordered the DRL's and am considering painting them red also. But need the pic to make the final...
