  1. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Flowmaster 40 series installed today. Sounds incredible! I've noticed an improvement on mpg as well. Pretty nice. Versante wheels on tomorrow!
  2. Discount Tire
    We don't need to tell you that competition tires are optimized for improved handling, cornering, and traction to deliver the pinnacle of performance for dry conditions and track driving. Instead, we want you to know that Discount Tire Direct (DTD) has you covered this race season! Whether you...
  3. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    It looked impressive, I could tell it was a 2015 because of its foglights that differentiate it from the 2011 - 2014 of the same body types in this rainy weather. It looked amazing. Those foglights look cooler than the ones on my '18. The car looked like a Luxury car. I don't know, but there is...

  5. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Going on the 405N around 70MPH, hit the accelerator to pass this car and POOF, didn't hear anything but I noticed something wrong, looked at my RPM and it was at 0. Car wouldn't start again and had tow it home. Thank god when I went home and did a little googling I found out about the recall...
  6. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I've had these mud guards on the car for 5 years and failed to remove them for cleaning. I removed the mud guards on the front and loosened the mud guards on the rear to clean up all the dirt and build up. Below is a picture of the dirt that came out from the back of the mud guards on the front...
  7. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    What color are you getting ... Exterior? Interior? I personally wish Kia were a little more creative with their colors.

    I'm new to this channel I'm from toronto and I just purchased a demo with 10k on it the condition was mint no issues...I fell in love with the brown quilted nappa leather, its my first turbo charged car so the small boost feels very big to me coming from cars that are under 160 HP...I was...
  9. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Really like the car, owned a 2013 EX previously. Really disappointed in the power of this turbo engine. Not impressed at all, 11 yr. old daughter just looked at me like WTH after flooring it a few times. Probably a deal breaker for me I'm sad to say.
  10. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    So today my buddy and I tinted our taillights. I'm liking the way they came out. The picture with the lights on are just the lights and not someone pressing the brakes.
  11. The Service Center
    Today I got an warranty letter that address a bad coupling in the MDPS for all 2011-2013 Optimas and some 2014 models. The letter states that the coupling fails and make noises when turning the steering wheel left or right especially when stopped. KIA will automatically replace the MDPS...
  12. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Asked my Dealer about this couple weeks ago. they had no idea what i was talking aboutlook what i got today...thought it was US only but no sircoming to Canada too. Really don't want to have to deal with this if it happens
  13. New Member Introductions
    Greetings all! For years I have dreamed of owning a 2011+ Optima SX. After much research and comparison it always came out on top for my personal needs. I originally wanted a SWP one, however where I live they GO FAST! And the ones you can find have some dings, dents, scuffs, etc. However, Now...
  14. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Unfortunately I only had about 10 minutes with it. :cry: Quick Review: From the outside, the car is very well proportioned and sculpted. I think they've done such a great job rounding out the car from the previous generation, making it more sporty and upscale. The wheelbase and overhang are...
  15. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Today my Fomoto F106S valve drain arrived. I also ordered the 3/8 hose sockets and lock clip. I did not get a hose with my adapters(or sockets per Fomoto) so I will just pick one up for my next oil change. I will be installing it today or tomorrow when I do my oil change. Here is what I got...
  16. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Picked up 20s earlier. Springs are next. What do you guys think...
  17. The Service Center
    I posted a while back about how Kia screwed up my driver seat cushion when they replaced the heat element (though they blamed it on the seat cushion breaking down) on 15 SXL. This made the seat leather loose and rippled and looked horrible. They said they'd replace the entire seat bottom...
  18. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    So today we installed the new CF rear diffuser along with the lower k5 led lights to replace the crappie reflectors and smoked all the lights out. You can also see in the first picture where we starting to black out the chrome trip that runs along the top of the doors with gloss black 3m vinyl...
