  5. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    I'm interested in knowing how they compare to the HID's on my 2016. My HID's seem a little weak and yellowish. I had LED headlights on several Acuras and loved them, but they use 10 LED's in each headlight, so I don't know how the single-LED's on the Optima's compare. Anyone?

    My car is floaty as others have mentioned. Its been an issue from an early mileage. Should I bee looking at sway bars, and stabilizers, or replacing the OEM shocks? I know this question was posted a few years ago, and the answer was to skip stockish and go straight to megan or similar. I'm...

    Has anyone here changed out the trunk lid opening to some struts? So you can fit a couple of infinite baffle subs on the deck? I realize there are other sub options but that's not what this thread is about, so please keep on topic rather than suggest alternate sub locations.
