  1. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Sharing this because you will all find it entertaining. 2 days before Christmas (6 months ago), I went in to have a downpipe installed. I didn't want to deal with it being 30* out and deal with the inevitable bolts breaking and having to drop the turbo to drill them out. So, what always...

    Hey everyone. Should I get myself the CP-E midpipe K5optima store offers with a HFC for $422 or should I just go to an exhaust shop near by and tell them to straight pipe my car and add a HFC? Does the CP-E have anything in there that makes it any different than straight piping it? I want to...

    My 2012 Optima LX recently started making a rubbing/gritty/grinding noise from the rear disk brakes. I pulled the wheels off last night and the pads look fine. The rotor is ridged but not too bad (IMO). I've searched posts here but can't find any good opinions/indications. The thing is it's...

  10. Engine and Technical Discussion
    At 300 miles my ABS, TPM, and traction control lights all came on. Was hoping it was something simple but its throwing a code the dealer didn't know what it was. Hoping it's just new car glitch, was really hoping my Optima would be more reliable than my BMW. The bar is set really low so it...
