2012 Optima SX Premium Touring Package. SWP
New guy here, I've been reading/lurking for a couple of months. I recently purchased (March 20th) a 2012 SX. The Optima was top of my list for cars I was interested in. Early February I started talking to a local car wholesaler who occasionally sells some vehicles to the public about what cars he had coming in. He was sending me pictures of what he was buying and about a week after we had been talking he sent a picture of a SWP Optima SX he had just purchased. We discussed price, milage, etc. he then told me it would be a few weeks before he would have the car ready because as soon as it got in town he would be taking it to the dealer to have the engine replaced. When he got it in I went by to look it over before he took it to the Kia dealer. The car started and ran, we came to a handshake agreement and the next day it went to the dealer. About three weeks later he called telling me he had it back. I met up with him the next day and drove the car and looked over the paperwork. Kia of Chattanooga had installed a remanufactured longblock, new starter, done a service and maintenance inspection and I bought it with 27 miles on the new engine.
