  1. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    This might not come as news to anyone, but I just noticed the other night that there are lights in the front doors below the armrests, that shine down onto the door pockets. I rarely have anything in those pockets so never noticed the red light, but had a water bottle in there the other day...
  2. The Service Center
    My car won't start, battery issues, but while I was under the hood hooking up the charger, I saw a hose that was just hanging out not connected to anything. Here is a picture. I circled where the hose from the intake is. It is zip-tied to the airbox. I also noticed no hose connected to the...
  3. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Just ran across a YouTube video of the K5 Signature, GT Line and Plug-in Hybrid all with LED headlights. The GT Line seats seems to be a bit more bolstered, the design is certainly different, looks like they also added some better material on the headliner. Video is in Korean so other than...

  6. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    This is not a thread about the normal mods we all can do. This is more for enhancements that would have to be done by Kia. I have two I'd like to share. 1) I really like the way my GM radio doesn't segregate AM/FM/XM for favorites. I can put my local FM Alternative station right next to...
  7. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    I'm getting within a few thousand miles of having to replace my tires and am slowly starting to do some research for something other than the stock tires. Is there a popular brand that you all prefer or is generally considered popular/good tires by everyone that buys aftermarket tires lol? Seems...
  8. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I had the exact same thing happen on my 08 Nissan Altima, which the dealer could never solve. Sometimes when making right turns I can feel something moving under my seat. I weigh about 200 pounds, so i don't think that could be an issue.
  9. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    He guys. I am going to be installing HID low beams and foglights in my LX in the very near future and I want to install the Steering Wheel Heater switch in the switch cluster panel on the left side of the steering wheel. It has an LED and will look OEM (except for the little steering wheel...

  11. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Just as it states, did I miss something??? Where is "munky" and why does he not post anymore?
  12. Pictures and Videos
    I finally did something to my Optima - today I got tints! 35% on the sides / 20% on the back... I thought 35% all around would work, but the installer suggested darker on the back since the rear-dash is tan it would look lighter with the sun was on it. I figured since he has 15+ years...
  13. Engine and Technical Discussion
    It's been over 2.5 months since my car was sent to the body shop and between their incompetence and KAI, i've still not even gotten confirmation of the shipment. AND that's with the body shop opting to pay for the $400 air freight. I'm really pissed off right now, all because I want the 7ism...
  14. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I got my 13 Optima on Saturday and have been super paranoid about parking it in the back of lots so it doesn't get dinged, cautious on the highway, etc. Today, I practically got ran off the road by a woman in a mini van who was obviously distracted and rolled up on the curb. Back passenger rim...
  15. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I had to brake hard over a sewer grating that was a lower grade than the street and I heard a loud noise. Now, although the car seems fine overall, it doesn't seem to drive as smooth. Did I wreck anything under the carriage, throw it out of alignment, etc? This happen to anyone? Thanks.
  16. Entertainment: Audio, Navigation, and Electronics
    I have a new 2013 EX (Titanium, premium package, nice car!). I like the voice command system in UVO, basically, and AFAIK I need it on to use my phone handsfree, so I need to leave it on. But it keeps insisting that I be listening to something. When I start up the car it starts playing where it...
