  3. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hi! Haven't been on the forum in a while and just decided to tell you guy's how the Optima's been doing! We bought the car on February 18th-ish of 2016. So it's been about a 1 year and a half. And the car has been doing great! Got the oil changed on the 19th of this month. Which was 2k miles...

    Installed my Catch Can almost a year ago. Left what I got out of the can in a cup outside in the cold. The three layers consist of Oil/???/Water(top down). Looks like it really does its job.
  7. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Just as the thread states. I've seen a couple of media photos of my Lane Warning/Traction Control/Heated Steering wheel and I'm convinced mine was switched. Not that it's a big deal if it was, just makes me wonder about the QC. What I've generally seen is from left to right; Traction Control...

  10. Interior and Exterior Modifications

  11. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Hello ladies and gentlemen. So I'm planning on getting a set of niche milan m137s in 19s and im wondering if I'll be able to see the concave difference between the two? Fronts will be 19x8.5 35et and the rears would be 19x9.5 35et. I know a staggered set up of 19x8.5 and 19x10 shows a big...
  12. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    Mike will probably chime in, but did I read in another post (can't find again) that the 3.0 K's are getting a tweak to be same size as the 2013+ emblems? I think he said Q1 2014? I want to get the full set front/rear/steering/and wheels, but only if they are direct replacement size. Thanks in...
