  1. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    I am trying to mod my 2018 Kia optima SX (first mod) and I have zero experience with moding cars. I wanted to add a new spoiler to my car but it already came with what I assumed an OEM spoiler from the manufacturer. I did some online research and could not find anyone showing or telling me how...
  2. New Member Introductions
    Hi, I'm Khani and I drive a 2014 Kia Optima Hybrid EX. I have been a member for almost a year, however, this is my first time posting. To be honest, I'm not entirely sure how to use this site, but I ended up browsing on here because my vehicle is currently in the body shop for repairs and I miss...
  3. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    Over the past few years, I've asked many questions about different kinds of spoilers on this forum, and now I'm looking to change from my current setup. Obviously performance isn't a concern, so it all comes down to appearance. So, Lip, Ducktail, or Lifted, which spoiler has the best...
  4. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    Was searching for these a while back, and it looks like they're back in stock: How do these stack up compared to a lip spoiler, or wing?
  5. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    Came across this part on eBay, and it seems to sell a lot: Anyone ever installed one of these? And if so, does it look decent?
  6. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    So I own a 2013 optima sx and my spoiler is sun damaged and I’m looking to replace it. There’s already holes drilled in my trunk from the factory lip spoiler it came with. Any suggestions on a new spoiler I can get for my car?
  7. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    My Stock spoiler is faded from the sun and looks like crap. I want to get a new one or remove it. does anyone know if its bolted down to the trunk or just the double sided tape?
  8. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I started getting this (see below) in the last week or so. Not sure how this is happening. I don't recall anything like bird droppings on something landing on that spot. As I got this pre-owned, and I have Carmax's extended warranty, it *might* be covered (checking with them later this week to...

    Can any of you who have added a spoiler to your Optima please post up some pics and let us know how they are working out? Stick on or bolt on?
  10. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I want to install a rear spoiler on my 2015. I see that I can get one off Amazon for around $150 painted and ready to double sided tape it on! Is there a significant difference in this than the OEM? If so, what is the difference and which do you prefer? Shep
  11. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    I have a question. I own a 2013 kia optima metal bronze and thinking about putting spoiler on and wondering anyone else's opinion on color. I'm leaning more towards black or should I go with factory color? Reason asking because I plan on getting VMR V710 Gun metal or matte black rims and was...

    Want to see if anyone installed a bigger spoiler. Wonder if an sti spoiler would fit.
  13. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Went thru K5 Store. Thanks David. The pictures on the Kinetic web site are different than what I received. Still like the spoiler. It does cover the six 1in X 1in square holes in the trunk from the factory spoiler. I use two of the holes with fender washers to screw into the spoiler. Also added...
  14. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Nice day today. Decided to swap out the spoiler. The original spoiler was held in with six long bolts. Not to bad to remove. But did run into an issue with the new spoiler. I had to move it back more than I would have like. I needed to cover up the large square holes. I use...

    What is your Optima's Show/Go Ratio? The purpose of this question is to determine which direction do most people on this site go when deciding to mod their Optimas... Is it more towards appearance? Or performance? A "Show" Mod is as follows: A Modification to enhance or alter your Optima's...
  18. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    So I've be debating on putting a slightly more aggressive style spoiler on my 16' SX. Right now I have the super thin style stick on spoiler. I had found some other spoilers on eBay that I liked but the pictures aren't great? Any have any good pictures of the OEM or aftermarket spoiler their...

    Anyone else having issues with trunk lid spoiler popping up? Mine is starting to in the middle at top of trunk. Will have it adressed at next service.
  20. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hi guys, I have a roof spoiler from k5 store and for the second time it's coming loose in the corners and I'm afraid it can come loose all the way and damage the car or any car behind us and was wondering if someone has had the same thing happened? Fwiw I cleaned the glass real good with...
