  1. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Just curious what you guys think about trading in a 2013 sx with 100k trouble free miles for a 2019 ex with premium. The biggest things I was looking for was Android auto and the smart cruise control to help with my daily nightmare commute. Looks like the decontented a few things like power...
  2. The Dealership
    I'm still a newbe to this forum but I wanted to tell you about my first expierence with a Kia dealership service dept. in Orlando Fl. I just bought a used 2017 Kia Optima LX with just over 40,000 miles (Yea, it was a hertz rental car) I had the car looked at by my friend (who is a mechanic) at...

  4. Vendor Deals
    Bringing you something a little different to kick the week off, Boslla is offering the first ever 4-color LED headlights via Kickstarter. Having variable color temperature to deal with fog or other inclement weather sounds like a half decent idea in theory, and at $49 per set the price isn't...
  5. The Service Center
    I need an adapter to hook up the factory head unit to an aftermarket backup camera. Only thing I can find is this product, an Axxess AX-HYKIACAM2. I can't link anything cause of post limits! Though it states it is only compatible with a 2016/2017 Optima. The instruction manual for setup seems...

  11. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Just saw on The Korean Car Blog, KIA will be bringing a Sportage GT! Maybe it's only an appearance, wheel and suspension package but I'm hoping they bump the power as well. I'm sure a lot of folks would like that. Share your thoughts

  13. Engine and Technical Discussion
    For some background on my situation check out this thread: http://www.optimaforums.com/forum/170-service-center/87065-45k-mile-service-help.html I just passed 44k miles in my 2011 SX last week so I went to the dealer the other day to get new spark plugs (the updated colder ones) and I put them...
  14. Outdated Administrative Threads
    For those of you who don't know, I was hit by a little old lady on Saturday, pretty much ruining both passenger doors and both fenders. I'm just glad I saw her before it was too late, because I was able to cut the wheel and avoid a head-on collision. So how bad do you guys think the damage...
  15. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    So I just bought a set of VRC13 and I'm having a tough time on deciding between BLACK OR A DARK COPPER COLOR. What color do you guys think would look best?

  17. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Not a good picture but there she is..I feel even the best pictures dont show this color well..I don't have many plans to change the car besides tint for sure and MAYBE powder coat/ dip the rims any suggestions on that? Also thinking about some LED lights i changed the license plate lights but...
  18. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    in search of rims at the moment. Cant decide on either 18" or 19". This is what im looking into at the moment. LMK what yall think .
  19. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    I have a 2011 SX-T and have the 18" stock pizza wheels. After getting the rims powder-coated (I still like 4 months later, but you may not), I wanted to get a new set of higher performance rubber than the stock Nexen (not hard to beat those tires) and I bought the Michelin Pilot Sport...
