    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?

    Anybody have this?!/BOZZmount-HG-LOWER-HORIZONTAL-GRILLE-NO-DRILL-LICENSE-PLATE-BRACKET/p/110722372/category=0 Since we don't have a tow hook, I've been looking at alternatives since I'm not a huge fan of the plate on the front bumper (I'm from Ontario, so a...

    Hi, I have a 2016 SXL that has never had a front license plate. It only has 2 tiny indentations where holes can be drilled in the bumper for a front plate. I called a local Kia dealer about ordering a proper license plate bracket, but was told they are only sold with new cars - no possible...

    I've looked all over, but for the life of me I can't find how to remove the license plate bulbs and vanity bulbs in my 2016 Optima. I'm afraid of breaking the housings or messing up the car. Anyone know where there's a walk through for the 2016+ models? Thank you in advance.

    So I search on this forum, only found one post related. Just wondering if anyone has a front license plate re-locator using the tow hook? I found this one online via ebay FRONT BUMPER TOW HOOK MOUNTING LICENSE PLATE RELOCATION BRACKET FOR 20X2.5 | eBay

    I noticed this for the first time the other day on my '12 SX when my trunk was open and I was standing about 10 feet away. Has anyone else seen corrosion near their license plate lights and trunk release button? I think the anti-corrosion warranty is 6 years/100K miles. Would this be covered...

    Hey guys, so I've got a sound plate installed on my 2016 Optima GT that I purchased from the K5OS. I've recently noticed it doing something a little weird and wanted to know people's experience, etc. I've noticed lately that the sound plate will 'release' even at very low rpm. It also...

    Where are you guys getting your license plate LED bulbs from? I looked on the k5optimastore and could only find the entire interior kit which I don't want. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk ---------- Post added at 08:28 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:27 PM ---------- Disregard this...

    Not liking them. My original idea was to plasti dip the trim pieces. Wish the stripes were level. Reverse them to see in black. Here's my wheel I had on my Sonata. Waiting for set of TPMS before I can install.

    After a month of wrangling (Long Story), I finally got a hold of the K5 series scuff plates for my optima. Unfortunately, the supplier conveniently ran out of stock of the rear LED units, so I had to make my own. Check them out! Front: Rear: One question: Does anyone know where I can get...

    Will the 2013 optima sx have an apple car plate upgrade for the infinity technology premium package?

    Perhaps a dumb question, but just noticed the red Kia light on the drivers side door sill doesn't light anymore. How do you change the LED/bulb? Is this customer serviceable? Warrantied? I try to make sure everything works... :) Thanks

    Anyone know of one? Apparently KIA doesn't make one anymore for the '16, and I can't find any on Ebay.

    I have been looking around for a license plate locator that goes on the towhook instead of having to drill through the bumper. No success. All I see are for the Genesis and VTs. Can anyone show me a link towards a license plate relocator for the Optimas? Or are they the same with the Genesis and...

    Has anyone else with the K5 LED lit door scuff plate experienced any issues? The LED on the left plate just stopped working the other day. It's been installed for about 2yrs with no problems and now out of warranty. Thoughts on how to troubleshoot or fix? I plugged the right door plate...
