  2. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    My 2012 only has 67k (67065). I am sitting in my car smoking because that isn't cool anymore. (ironically it's not "lit" according to my kids) Anyway I installed cross drilled and slotted rotors and here in DC they have SAVED MY LIFE. Two cars were in a dual and one cut me off right before he...
  3. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hello All, My car is at 50,000 miles roughly. I get heavy vibrations only when the car is in drive and stopped. When the car is in park, the vibrations lesson greatly and become almost not noticable. I did a search but it seems everyone has a different issue. Is there a TSB for this? Thanks!

    So I was trying to think of something that would tie in my TSW center caps to the car and came up with this... thoughts? Next on my list is paint the brakes red. Since the brakes and rotors are much more visible with the Brooklands, I wanted to emphasize them. I didn't use PlastiDip...

    Not sure if I should to it. I tried reaching out to MGP for some covers but they don't make any for the 16 SX. Don't want to paint over the factory red but I might do it. My wheels might look better without the red. Any thoughts?

    So I was just about to pick up some Meguiar's Hot Rims All-Wheel Cleaner but noticed it says: "Not safe for.... painted or colored brake components" Since the '16 Optima has the red calipers, I assume this is a no-go. Meguiar's does have a version of Hot Rims that is for aluminum wheels and...

    So I need opinions, I sprayed my rear quarter panel with dupli-color custom wrap red, and im not sure how i feel about it. Anyone have any opinions if i should keep it red, darken it with more of a crimson/blood red, or just go gray like my hair...
  11. The Detailing Corner
    So it has been slightly over 2 years since we picked up the Kia and it was in need of a refresh since I originally did the car, even though the car still very glossy and hydrophobic. Our 3 kids have been pretty rough on the outside of the car and there were plenty of scratches and scuffs on the...

    I bought the red "T" for the grill about 2 yrs ago and it has faded and cracked, even though its garaged. Can anyone suggest a vendor where I can buy one that is a better quality.
