    The Promo Code BIG15 Adds Additional 15% Savings Site Wide (On Top Of 60% Clearance Too!) Discount Ramps—contrary to their name—offers a wide range of automotive cargo hauling equipment, and running alongside their massive clearance sale (markdowns up to 60%), they've offered up an additional...
  2. Engine and Technical Discussion
    While I'm driving and turn the wheel left and right, the car's front end wobbles a bit but I'm not sure if it's due to the winter tires. Or could it be rack and pinion? Anyone else know what I'm talking about?

  4. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Hello all, I hope there are a few engineers or very knowledgeable owners with me here. Do anyone know to what extent does the CANBUS system monitor the 2016 LX? Does the LX (very base) have the same wiring harness (from relay - fuse panel - to option) that is in the EX (bells & whistles)? I know...
  5. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    I am thinking of turning this feature off on my 2016 Optima. Sometimes it beeps just when going by a tree in the median of the left turn lane. Other times if it's a two lane left turn. It seems overly picky at some other times, too. Anyone else notice this?
  6. The Service Center
    2013 Kia Optima SXL 2nd Owner 69k miles on the odometer / out of warranty. Out of the blue I lost power while driving, then the check engine light came on which kicked out the code "P0087 DTC - Fuel Rail/System Pressure Too Low". Now this might be incorrect, but I'm assuming since the car...

    Hey there everyone. Please forgive me if anyone has brought this up before, but I picked up my 2014 SXL a few weeks ago and have some questions about the Infinity system. I came from a Mitsubishi Eclipse that had a stock 650W Rockford Fosgate setup with a stock 10" sub in the trunk, so perhaps...
  8. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    I'm new to coilovers so the title speaks for itself. What's your guys suggestions?
  9. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Everyone who rides in the back seat of my Limited is really impressed with the copious amount of leg room they have. But every time someone rides up front, they are so used to mid-size sedans having pathetic rear leg room, they instinctively move the seat up to give the person behind them more...
  10. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    Took me a while to find something thin enough to get behind the letters to pry them off but once I did they came off just like those on the trunk. I'm loving the less flashy look and now I don't need to buy replacement side fender grilles :thumbsup:
  11. DIY Projects
    Changed my plugs, and saw that dreaded #2 plug had lost a portion of the ceramic insulator tip. I think this caused me some noise in the engine a while back, that immediately went away before I could stop, and the dealership said there was a misfire code that was probably caused by bad gas...
  12. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Mine got rear ended for a second time. Cracked the bumper and scuffed the lower valence. No injuries. Already got it repaired and it came back perfect. Just frustrating.
  13. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I've seen & read a few threads on the subject.. Does anyone know of the '14's are any different? I've test drove a couple '13's and did notice it (well, my wife did)... Any changes to '14 and does this bug anyone else.. or is it not all that noticable?.... or has anyone here installed the...
  14. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    It has been my experience that the "auto lights" on my 2013 optima are too sensitive, not so much a matter of sensitivity of coming on when driving through shaded areas but the recovery time for the lights to shut back off. Since I am lucky enough to have LED DRL's I see no need for my head...
  15. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    2015 Audi A3 sedan: short version- cheaper than the SX I want, better performance, back lights similar to 11-13 optima's(don't like the new ones) always wanted Audi but was out of my price range. I'll probably lease. I pay 450/mo fully loaded with 15,000/yr and lease ins. Long version- I have...
