    Am I going crazy here or is ~$2100 + labor + tax crazy to replace a light bulb??? I hit a deer last winter and part of the costs when fixing it was indeed a $2096.41 "Lamp" for the drivers side. Can they not just buy a new D1S bulb and replace it? I'm absolutely flabbergasted they want this...

    I've seen the chrome 18" SXL wheels, and I do not like chrome, but **** they look good on this car! Anybody in Georgia that doesn't like the chrome rims on their Optima, want to swap out for the SX/SXL non-chrome? Mine are flawless, never seen a curb. Your's must be the same... Am I crazy for...

    Hey all. We have decided to buy a used Optima. I'm an avid Pontiac fan, but sadly there aren't many good ones out there. We have driven a lot of cars in the last month and have settled on the Optima. All I have to say is WOW. What a nice car for the money. Sadly we have a dilemma. We absolutely...

    My 2012 Optima LX recently started making a rubbing/gritty/grinding noise from the rear disk brakes. I pulled the wheels off last night and the pads look fine. The rotor is ridged but not too bad (IMO). I've searched posts here but can't find any good opinions/indications. The thing is it's...

    So I was trying to replace my downpipe. A buddy of mine was helping. Basically we broke 1 stud from the downpipe that goes to the turbo. I called Kia to see if I can buy a new stud and both dealerships said that due to one stud breaking, I have to replace the exhaust manifold? Wtf is that...

    So I have LED Strip lights as an alternative DRL and I will soon have switchback LED's and I was wondering if anyone knows a good affordable shop that can wire those for me. I've been getting quotes from $70-$140 which is way to **** expensive. I'll even pay a user so nice cash if they can do it.

    Anyone else have issues with the rear backup camera working when it wants to? We thought it may be due to heat issues here in SW GA but it did not work all weekend even in the early AM, 7:30am. Today it worked around 12PM when I drove it to the store but not at 4:25PM when the fiance left for...
